Ratings and Reviews
The app itself is amazing since you can customise the touch bar 👍
This remote is also an excellent addition! Does exactly what I want it to. Respect goes to the dev if BTT!
This was a great app. However, now you need to pay for the desktop server to use the app.
Reading the FAQ I'm not fully convinced whether or not there will be continuous updates, or if any future updates will require payments either. The developer writes "I hope to...", however if I'm going to hand over my money I expect to see "I will definitely...".
I also noticed in the FAQ that the app will be free for purchasers of the server. I've paid for the app, the server should be free.
This app is crazy good, wish I knew about it years ago. Would love to see siri shortcuts support, that would be a game changer for me.
