Anyone else use Award Wallet?

I signed up to the free version a while ago, after reading some scary stories about people having their FF accounts hacked and points stolen, but after a while I lost interest in the service... because there seemed to be a lag in Award Wallet being notified of my FF account activity, so I just figured it was a dud system.

However, my opinion changed today.
I received an alert from Award Wallet telling me that Qantas had changed my connecting flight in Brisbane, which means that I now have negative five minutes for an international transfer.
I called Qantas to try and get an answer, and they said that I would need to speak to the "3rd party booker" i.e. American Express travel voucher.
On calling Amex, they said: "Oh yeah, it looks like there is a change to your booking... we didn't notify you yet, because the team have not yet started on processing the batch of schedule changes for the month of April" - what does that mean? that Amex would have waited until March to alert me??? There is only one scheduled flight per week that I can take!

Luckily - Award Wallet gave me a timely update!
My opinion on the Award Wallet system is now vastly boosted.
I would be interested to hear if anyone else uses other aspects/functions of Award Wallet that they think are particularly useful???

I use them, they are quite good and I pay for the yearly subscription - it's quite useful for keeping track, but it can fail with certain accounts quite a few times.

TripCase or any other flight alert apps will usually get these notifications to you before the airline or travel agent does.
