Review by TMS85

Not compatible with Yosemite - I used this program for a couple years and it was ok. The graphics were nice, it never really froze up, and it was nice to be able to lock my screen without putting the computer to sleep. Even then, however, I found something annoying. I never liked how you have to hold down a button before you can enter password. Always found it a waste of time. BUT THE REAL PROBLEM now is that it will not work with Yosemite. If the program kicks on, it freezes up my whole computer, makes the screens flicker, etc. I can’t even click my way to the shutdown/restart button. The only way out of the mess created by Lock Screen Plus is manually to hold down the power button and take ages for the restart. Pain. I’m uninstalling it now and will not be back for later versions.

Review by killergeek69

Sort of works - This app seems really cool at first. Slick graphics and options obviously biggest thing is being able to lock/unlock the screen for security reasons. It does the 1st flawlessly but the unlock needs work. I've had to hard power-off my Mac because the app was unresponsive, in other words locked me out. Needless to say I've since uninstalled the app and once again I'm searching for a dependable/functional app for this purpose. Good luck!

Review by mmacaula

Pretty good - Two problems I have with this otherwise nice app. For the password lock, the password should be the same as the user account password. It's confusing to have a special password for the lock screen and one for your user account, forcing you to keep them in sync. The other is that when unlocking with the keyboard, it should just let you type your password, not hit a bunch of keys before you are presented with the password prompt.

Choose wallpaper?!?! - "Choose Wallpaper" is misleading, I thought I could import my own image into. It should say "Choose from 10+ wallpapers and themes." I feel a little ripped off
