A fresh new coat of paint has been applied to HomePass, making the app easier to use and a delight to view.

With HomePass 1.5, you can now scan accessories that support NFC pairing such as the Nanoleaf Canvas. This provides an even quicker way to get codes backed up and safe. Simply open the scanner, then tap the NFC button to start scanning. Another great improvement is the addition of the flashlight while scanning QR or 8-digit codes.

Ratings and Reviews
Very useful app and a very responsive developer
I have my whole house (60+ HomeKit devices) cataloged using this app. When I first purchased it and encountered a strange bug with the camera on an iPad that I reported, the dev contacted me personally and pushed an update to the app within a day which fully solved the issue I was seeing. Truly can’t ask for more than that.
Great GUI for, effectively, a free Notes entry.
It does what it says, though I felt led to believe that was something else: specifically, it doesn’t auto-import codes from your existing HK setup, leaving you to manually enter them all from scratch (just as you’d have to do in a Notes app note). I paid the $3 to avoid this time-consuming task, and though I now understand that’s impossible to do (HK doesn’t store them, apparently) the sting of throwing money at a solution I could’ve had for free via Notes is still there.
Three stars for being what it said it is. -2 for not making what it’s *not* more clear. It’s a great solution if you’re willing to put in the work.
Developer Response ,
Hi, the last paragraph of the app description explicitly states that it cannot import codes from HomeKit due to the security model that HomeKit has. HomeKit itself does not store the codes at all, they are simply used as keys to enable pairing.
HomePass does a lot more than notes. It offers actual camera based scanning of text and QR codes so you do not have to manually enter anything. You can select already paired devices to auto fill data fields and now you can export a PDF and view your codes on your Watch to re-pair them.
If you are unhappy with the app, you can request a refund via Apple. - Aaron
Great app to supplement Homekit
A great way to organize Homekit codes instead of looking through the pile of papers or tracking in a spreadsheet. The app works as advertised.
I had an issue with syncing across devices (iPad and iPhone) and emailed the developer for support. He responded within a day with a fix. Good to know that any issues will be resolved quickly.
