With MacID you don't even need to open the app to unlock your Mac. MacID intelligently notifies you when one of your connected Macs is woken up, which you can authorise and unlock directly from your iOS lock screen using either your fingerprint or passcode.

MacID will even notify you when tasks require your OS X password, like moving protected files to the Trash or changing a setting in System Preferences.

You can also play, pause and skip iTunes & Spotify on your Mac remotely, as well as change the volume. Simply long-press on the audio controls to toggle between track and volume controls.

Ever needed to quickly share a phone number or piece of text between your Mac and iOS device? Clipboard sharing is built right into MacID; share anything up to 4000 characters.

Enable auto-lock in MacID for OS X and your Mac will automatically lock when your iOS device moves away from it. You can even get notified when your Mac locks itself.

Enable proximity waking in MacID for OS X and your Mac will wake itself when your iOS devices gets near, then simply authorise from the interactive notification MacID sends you to unlock your Mac without unlocking your iOS device.

MacID now includes a handy Notification Center widget, which will show all your currently connected Macs and give you quick access to unlock them from anywhere on your iOS device.

MacID is:

• Secure: your fingerprint and passcode data never leave your iOS device; your OS X password never leaves your Mac.
• Trustworthy: MacID doesn't ever connect to the Internet.
• Simple: designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at.
• Power friendly: MacID uses the latest Bluetooth Low Energy technology to use as little energy as possible, no matter how much you use it!
