I managed to connect my 3Gs to my imac in about 30 seconds with this app and it works great considering it's free! I could open and close programs, look at files, and even type in pages. Didn't have a problem with the keyboard interface or using the mouse (although scrolling is a nightmare).
I tried to do the same thing on my windows 7 laptop, but it wouldn't connect... I'm not sure if this is a compatibility issue or not. I also attempted to access my mac over 3G but the connection just timed out.
To be honest, asking this kind of service from a free app is a lot, and I think it definitely does a good job considering this. All the people who are complaining about the little glitches associated with this app should probably just spend the £15 and get LogMeIn Ignition or iTeleport. Then at least when there are issues with performance etc, you will actually have the right to be annoyed.
Phone based remote access app
This app is quick to connect, easy to set up connections with and importantly for me, the only one I've found currently that allows you to tap directly to click instead of having to guide a cursor around and tap somewhere on the screen to click on an item where the pointer is.
When it went to a 2 minute time out it was almost unusable for all but a quick check on a running system but now it has a 5 minute time out, which is an improvement as although the original wasn't time restricted, it wasn't fully functional either. The free version is fully functional but if you need more than 5 minutes then the paid version removes this restriction.
In summary, this is a great way to try out the app before paying for the unrestricted version.
Cheap looking interface that seems to have had 5 minutes spent on it. Always fails to connect first time round and needs restarting. Toolbar you use to call the keyboard / other menus doesn’t show up half the time and needs a restart. 5 minute limit on free version but you needn’t worry about that since it doesn’t work so you’ll quit within 5 minutes easily. Horribly poorly built app.
No right click. No virtual scroll wheel, meaning even if you do manage to establish a - very slow - connection to your Mac, you can’t do much. Oh, and the refresh rate is dismal. It’s absolute pot luck whether features will work or not.
Overall, a weak app that’s unreliable and inconsistent. Hilarious that they imagine this is an encouragement to pay for the full version. You’d be better off throwing your money into a lake.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
