The app sales continue to pour in as Black Friday weekend pushes on … and if you have been meaning to try out Kane Cheshire’s wireless unlock utility – MacID, now is definitely the time to take the plunge.
That’s because MacID is -for a limited time only– shedding its regular asking of $3.99, to land at its new time-sensitive price of less than $1.
Updated at the end September with several fixes and tweaks relating to performance across iOS 10, watchOS 3 and macOS Sierra – for those who are perhaps new to the whole MacID deal, essentially, the app allows you to wireless unlock any nearby Mac using either the Touch ID-enabed home button on your iPhone, a passcode, a connected Apple Watch or a Pebble.
Apart from being a hella’ cool party trick to show off to friends and family, MacID is also super handy as the app specifically allows you to do all of this – without unlocking your iOS device.
“You don’t even need to open the app to unlock your Mac,” Cheshire notes, as he explains that MacID will instead “intelligently notify you when one of your connected Macs is woken up,” meaning you can then take action directly from your iOS lock screen using “either your fingerprint or passcode.”
Now available for just $0.99, MacID is expected to return to its usual price – shortly.
