If you have a moment spare please rate or update your review for MacID in the iOS App Store. Whenever a new version is released the reviews from the last version aren’t shown in the App Store, updating your review will really help support MacID.
Here’s a rundown of what’s new:
MacID for iOS:
- Fixes an issue where the app could crash while Macs are trying to connect.
- Improves unlocking from Apple Watch notifications. There will still be times when the watch simply won’t let iOS know that a notification was tapped, there’s very little I can do apart from file a bug report.
- Fixes an issue where the Today view widget wouldn’t load on iOS 8.
- Fixes a German typo. (Super hard for me to spot these as I don’t speak the language fluently)
MacID for OS X:
- Fixes some nasty crashes. Unfortunately these crashes only became apparent after the beta so I wasn’t able to prevent these. Thank you to everyone who forwarded crash reports to me, it really does help.
- Adds an option to get MacID to reset your Mac’s Bluetooth rather than deleting hidden files manually. This is especially helpful if you’re trying to add a device and it refuses to show in the setup window. To reset Bluetooth now, either wait for the button to appear in the setup window or hold ALT while clicking the MacID menu, More > Reset Bluetooth.
- Adds optional automatic crash reporting. Disabled by default to respect your privacy but please consider enabling if you want to help improve MacID. To enable, click the MacID menu > More > Enable crash reporting…
- Improves auto-update speed. Previously it would wait until you next launch the app yourself, now it will try and re-launch it for you.
- Fixes an issue where “taps” may remain visible on the lock screen while using Tap to Unlock.
- Improves the reliability of the information displayed about the connection for each known device.
- Brings back the option to send clipboard to all connected devices.
- Improves usage when two accounts are logged in on the same Mac and both running MacID.
- Fixes an issue where choosing to always display RSSI information would require a restart of the app.
- Improves reconnection by occasionally refreshing the procedure to avoid stalling. Unfortunately it still seems like iOS 9 ceases to advertise for MacID overnight and requires the iOS app to resume advertising.
- Adds an option to remove the number of comnected devices from the Dock and menu bar icons.
- Temporarily removed auto-move functionality. It conflicts with Sparkle, the auto-update framework that MacID uses.
Thank you to everyone who’s submitted feedback and crash reports. It really does help, if you want to be part of the MacID beta you can fill out this form and I will add you to the next batch.
