All the bad guy has to do is power quit your computer by holding down the on/off button, and this app is bypassed. I liked iAlertU until I discovered that one. ....deleting it as i write this. Going to look for some kind of a pressure pad alarm system that is weight sensitive to place under my macbookpro.
Great idea, but doesn't work at all on Snow Leopard. Alarm shuts off after seconds, photo is taken but not sent,
Useless on Snow Leopard.
