4. Known Issues

Known issues are issues that we are aware of and are currently working on to fix.

Refreshing Logins

Pushpass updates its logins when it connects, however if you've added a new login on the phone, you may need to refresh the list of logins.

App in Background

iOS 10 (10.0.0 and 10.0.1) currently have a bug affecting all products that utilize bluetooth background modes. This issue will be fixed in the next point release of Apple's iOS, however we are also in the final stages of implementing a workaround. Once the app is no longer in the foreground (screen is locked, for example) the app will no longer receive Bluetooth from the Mac. This will cause Pushpass on the Mac to hang.

No warning if Bluetooth is turned off

Pushpass utilizes Bluetooth for communication. Make sure bluetooth is turned on both on the Mac and on the iPhone. We have not yet implemented a warning that warns you if Bluetooth is turned off.

5. Fixed Issues

The following issues should be fixed in current builds:

Denying a Login will ignore subsequent login requests
