FINALLY a simple solution!

Lock Pro is just what I was looking for: a way to easily lock apps for just a bit more protection from, say, the curious/prying eyes of flies on walls (read: kids) who IMO shouldn't be privy to things like household finances, private diaries, some SMS text conversations [because that's all we parents have left, ever since a gang of n'er-do-well teachers went and taught the kid to spell/read darnit] and so on. Works like a charm. I do wish it had a few more advanced options (e.g., different passwords for different categories of programs), and I also wish I had a better understanding of how it works so I could then understand how easy it would be for the single password to be cracked by a saavy flatmate -- but beggars are always looking for horses to ride, as the saying sorta goes. :) All in all a solid app -- thanks for filling a gaping void, devs!

I bought this app thinking it would lock the apps i dont want anyone to use. It works just as that and is great. One issue I have is the fact that no touch ID is added. It would make everything more simple.

This app does what it promises

I like Lock Pro a lot more than other locking apps that are out there at the moment. I've tried Cisdem App Crypt, but I feel that Lock Pro is cleaner looking because it feels like something Apple would make. There are a couple of things I don't like but they are definitely not deal breakers.

1. I wish they would allow Touch ID to be used to unlock apps. I think this could be achieved through the use of the APIs for Local Authentication fingerprint checking. This would allow the lock screen to complete the passcode requirement with Touch ID verification. I have a MacBook Pro w/Touchbar and I love it when apps use Touch ID as an option for user verification.

2. There is also a slightly odd animation effect when the app opens that I I don't like. The app looks like it is opening, and you see the lock screen for a second. The then screen goes blank for a few more seconds before the lock screen comes back on. This animation issue is something that I believe will be ironed out with future updates.

In short, if you want a way to secure applications on your Mac then this is the app for you.
