  1. This does one thing well. It works for a Mac and iOS device running Safari. It does not work at all on Windows and does not work for Google Chrome. I’ll keep using it on my Mac, but would suggest you wait to try it on other devices. Biggest advantage is your data is not stored on any server. It goes straight to your device.
