Easy to use, but a battery hog
The app is very powerful and easy to use, but it eats up my MacBook’s battery. Activity Monitor shows that it uses about 30% more energy on average than Safari does when I am using it on average. If I forget to quit the app, my laptop loses several hours of battery life. If this were fixed, it would be 5 stars.
Easy install, but doesn’t actually work
Mac works fine. Iphone works fine. Install even went well. But for an app to be successful, it has to work. I couldn’t even get the scroll functionality to work correctly; it kept thinking I was right clicking.
My advice to the devs: the networking is KILLER. Having the phone and computer sync up like that just by being on the same network is awesome use of technology. However, your actual trackpad needs a lot of work. My suggestion would be to make it more like a joystick, where you use your thumb to move the mouse on a virtual mousepad, thumb double click is left click, something else is right click. So… like, halfway there? Once the bugs are fixed it will be a good app, I think.
2 stars for lack of functionality.
Remote mouse, keeps the modem running will not turn off
Got this apps and it works good, but only thing that bothers me is when the apps is on, my internet is always running and slowing down the speed when surfing the net or playing games. Why in the world does it needs the internet when using the apps from your smartphone to move them curser in the computer? Fot that I got rid of it, a bad thing for the apps to use the internet for what, all it does is slow down your computer and gaming consol. Never again will I use this apps, unless they make it that doesn’t use the internet, like I say it is always running and not sure why. So I hate it when it uses the internet for what.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
