In my opinion, it's really close to fraud. If I pay for something, and you disable it, have I not been cheated out of what I paid for? Fraud, right? It does not work the same in smart lock. It's hit and miss on unlocking, and it doesn't open the screen, you still have to swipe. It was represented a specific way. Motorola changed it. In my opinion that's fraud, and anyone who paid for it, should get a refund. It didn't break, they broke it on purpose. If it was free with my phone that might be different. This canned response from Motorola is annoying
Impressive Feature and Device The skip setup was so easy. It took awhile for me to find the sweet spot on my phone to unlock my phone. Now it is simple. I really like having this feature. PLEASE NOTE: One of my two cases has a kick stand. The kick stand's metal hinge is on the sweet spot and interferes with the skip device. My other basic plastic case works great with skip. ADDITIONAL NOTE: If you have paired Bluetooth devices you can make them a trusted device and this will keep your phone unlocked too. Goto the security section.
Moto x 1st gen 5.1 - doesn't work Updated my first gen moto x to 5.1 and now I can't set up my Motorola skip ... I tried turning on smart lock but then under screen security smart lock doesn't show up as an option. Really disappointed.
Enable skip dots with lollipop 5.1 This app was made obsolete with 5.1. You have to enable "Smart Lock" in security settings, then add your NFC dots as trusted devices. It is pretty annoying that you still have to swipe up even if the phone is unlocked though.
Do not buy this device, it does not work with Lollipop (5.1). Motorola will point you to instructions to make it work but there is no smart lock option on my first generation Moto X. Such a waste of money, thanks for nothing Motorola.
Bring it back Motorola Skip is so much better than Smart Lock. It's more reliable and gives better feedback to let you know that it has worked. Please bring it forward into lollipop. I'm regretting this upgrade.
