MacID’s missing watchOS 2 Glance

[Update, 22 December 2015: The bug has been fixed by Apple in watchOS 2.1, the Glance will be returning in the next update to MacID for iOS and Apple Watch]

As you may have noticed, MacID’s Glance is missing from the native watchOS 2 app.

Removing the Glance was a very difficult decision, I spent time updating its design and only after then did I find a very frustrating bug with watchOS 2 which stops MacID for Apple Watch working if you open the app through the Glance. Continue reading MacID’s missing watchOS 2 Glance

Hello!

Hello, everyone.

Welcome to the new MacID blog! Here I’ll be posting tips & tricks, news and more detailed information about things.

Seeing as this is the first post, let me speak a little about myself and MacID, the app which lets you unlock your Mac using just your fingerprint, passcode or wrist.

MacID is designed and developed by just one person, Kane Cheshire. I’ve been working on MacID since October 2014 and finally passed App Store review on January 15th 2015. Since then I’ve worked endlessly on improving MacID, to add multiple feature requests and also keep working around bugs with Bluetooth on OS X.

I’ve been really humbled by the support for MacID and I owe a lot of thanks to beta testers, translators and people who’ve reviewed MacID on their blogs and websites. I am really grateful to everyone who’s downloaded, praised, reviewed, rated, translated, tested, criticised, and supported MacID. I really do read all feedback and I take everything on board, even if I’m not in control of some of the problems.

I also monitor the Twitter and Facebook accounts – as well as the feedback and help email accounts – and I do all of this in my spare time around my job on the railway. I dedicate a lot of time to MacID, because it’s something I’m really passionate about.

Thank you again to everyone who’s helped, enjoy!
