Changes in v1.3.3 (OSX)

  • Focuses on improving reconnections.
  • Fixes an issue where launching MacID while Spotify or iTunes is running and paused would still cause the track name to be sent to MacID for iOS.
  • Moves the Auto-lock disabled reason to the main menu.
  • Auto-lock disabled reason now shows if it’s disabled because you’ve set it to be limited to power adapter only and you’re on battery, and vice-versa.
  • Auto-lock disabled reason will only show if you have Auto-lock enabled.
  • Adds an option to completely hide MacID from the Dock and Menu Bar. After hiding MacID you’ll need to click the MacID app icon again to get it back.
  • Adds an option to set a keyboard shortcut to completely hide MacID.
  • Improves password entry reliability.
  • Pressing play or pause on MacID for iOS while the screen is locked will wake the screen to play/pause and then automatically send the screen back to sleep.
  • Fixes some nasty memory leaks.
  • Fixes an issue where moving the MacID menu from the Dock to the Menu Bar would fail.
  • Reduces the amount of random connections when Bluetooth briefly wakes up while the lid is closed. Unfortunately there are times when the system reports that the screen is awake even when the lid is closed so MacID will send you an unlock request. I know this is annoying so I’m continually looking into a way to work around this.
