    You're Jamaican me crazy! This app is ugly... not Swede at all.

    Does it slow down anything? And how much does it cost

    How about reading the app?

    You create a pass pattern which you “slide” across the keyboard keys.

    Unless there's a trackpad built-in to the keyboard, I think that pressing the keys in a specific order is still called "entering a password".

    I'm not really keen on having to learn a password other than my admin one to unlock my mac, unless it has a "slide" aspect already by an amazing coincidence.

    You press each button in a row consecutively. (In a sliding motion of course)
    Very intuitive, isn't it? :p

    Wow. This app. I seriously have no clue why it's one of the Top 10 Paid apps in the App Store of my current location (and it's the #35 in the US App Store). The icon is horrible and doesn't match the OS X HIG, and sliding the keyboard to unlock... Are you kidding me now?

    It works with the TrackPad just fine, and looks kinda cool. Don't know if I will keep it running, but why not?

    The "slide to unlock" feature is there to prevent you from unlocking your phone by accident when it's in your pocket. You don't keep your laptop or desktop anywhere where you might unlock it by accident.

    This software is simply idiotic.
