MACBOOK AIR!!!! - Ok, I am soooo not happy with this app right now. I'm sure it works but I just wasted $2.99. Appreantly it won't work with Macbook Airs and they don't tell you that in the disctiption. They just say that you need a sudden motion sencer. I didn't know the Macbook Air doesn't have it. Please change your discription to be more clear.

Piece of garbage - Obscure instructions. Doesnt work on sceen lock. Doesnt send the captured screen shots with the notifications. What good are screenshots on a stolen computer? Plus the iSight camera would inexplicable stay on indefinitely. How creepy. Dont waste your money. Customer service is non existent. I want the 45 minutes of my life I wasted on this POS back.
