    You will never have to enter any password in your iOS device again, now you can just use your finger.

    Been waiting for this feature since the 5S touch ID was announced and now I'm living the dream :rolleyes::cool:

    Anyone else tried it?

    Gonna wait on some reviews before spending 5 bucks. Looks promising though.

    Works as advertised. Been using it for the past hour. So far one issue, does not work with my ADP app but works with every other. I already emailed the developer about it.

    I just saw the YouTube video, this is what I've been waiting for as well. Let's hope it works as it should/could.

    Very cool. I will also wait on some reviews, but definitely something that is worth the price of admission.

    Edit: Would this also work with an app like applocker?

    I hope so since it uses the fingerprint scanner:D.

    I don't want to think negative about this but wouldn't this "steal" your passwords and usernames

    That was a major senior moment.

    Everyone, skip my last post. I am embarrassed

    Maybe what I was thinking was does it work on 7.1 b2. I am considering updating again, but will still to 7.04 if I can keep all my tweaks. Love VirtualHome...

    This would be my concern as well... in the description it says all passwords are stored securely in the local keychain. Seems safe... I would be concerned if I were one of the folks who buy pirated cydia tweaks though.

    My main use for this would be my bank account and credit card apps so I would be a little hesitant but I think I may take the plunge, just not as an early adopter.

    $5.00 is a lot for something so new...

    I'll wait.

    Installed and couldn't get it to work for beans on Safari. Uninstalled after 30 minutes. Waste of $5. Hopefully the dev will use my money to improve it and I'll try again on a later release.

    Indeed it sounds like a great tweak but I'm more concerned about losing my information to the internet

    Yeah. It is a concern. I'd love verification that all passwords stay local.

    I'd pay $5 in a second if it was deemed safe by independent developers.

    Great tweak, but VirtualHome conflicts. Bummer. I really like VH

    Well that's mostly why I'm waiting. I don't tend to trust third party apps when they first come out. Not saying I'm suspecting this one of being malicious at all, but I have simply way too much to lose in the way of passwords and such and I'd rather make sure I don't.

    Looks promising, but if it conflicts with VirtualHome then I'm passing it. Just in love with VH.
