    This is great. Very elegantly designed, and thus far it seems to "just work." AirBuddy has quickly replaced ToothFairy, and Magic Battery on my MacBook Pro.

    The only function it's missing that I'd really love to see introduced is a notification when any of the connected devices (selectable by the user) drops below a chosen charge threshold. So, for example, macOS would alert me when my AirPods have dropped below 10% charge. Or when my iPhone X has dropped below 15% charge. That would be very handy and a great fit for AirBuddy! Then it will be able to replace "iBetterCharge" on my MacBook Pro too.

    Big props to the developer for introducing a function Apple should have added a long while ago.

    This doesn't support Apple Watch battery status. Does anyone know a Mac app that does? iBetterCharge doesn't either.

    At home
    Works great.
    I switch a lot between my rMB and iPhone. The 'click to connect' is great. I wish this was possible in iOS too.
    Now I have to go into settings-bluetooth-connect airpods in iOS when I switch back from my rMB. The 'click to connect' in the pop-up window in Mojave is so much easier!

    Request it on Twitter, the developer is very accommodating.

    (AirBuddy working great over here for me, though!)
