Ratings and Reviews
Couldn't Get It to Work at All
I figured for $6.99, this was worth a gamble, but I had no luck getting it to work, with my 2012 MacMini running MacOS Catalina, an iPhone 6S , or my Apple Watch Series 5. I could successfully pair the devices, but the proximity lock/unlock didn't work at all... I walked away, and the screen never locked automatically as it should have. I locked it manually one time (using the special CTRL OPTION CMND key combo) and the screen locked, but then I couldn't get it to unlock - nothing I tried worked. Finally, I had to cold start the machine to recover. Like I said, I'm not out too much $-wise, but I am disappointed. This would've been cool had it worked.

Hey I think probably you are not going far enough or you have paired a different device. Please make sure that either Watch or iPhone’s Bluetooth is on while pairing. So you know which one got paired. If it still doesn’t work reach our to firstname.lastname@example.org let’s make this work.
Much Needed App
I had been using my Apple Watch to unlock my MacBook Pro at work, but after I swapped it out for a 2012 MacMini, that was no longer an option. Along came Unlock to save my life! Although the documentation is a bit rough, the app itself has worked great and the developer has been extremely responsive. It's wonderful to simply leave my desk and have the Mac lock quickly and reliably and then to return and have it unlock just as fast.

FAILS to lock when leaving range, or even turning OFF Bluetooth entirely
I had high hopes for this app, but unfortunately realized after 20 minutes of testing, that this app would NOT lock the computer when I stepped out of range. In fact, I tested with turning on my phone and watch's Bluetooth entirely: it still failed.
Developer Response ,
Sounds like you have some other Bluetooth LE device nearby and that got registered. Make sure that the only device that is in proximity while registering, is the one you intend. After you figure that out, it’s really reliable. If you have questions there is an option to talk to me in the menu.
