Only promises

You think you buy a remote control, but in order to be able to really use it, you need to pay much more money

as expected

If you are a powerpack user on the AlfredApp on macOS, this is awesome.
Set up a spare iPad next to your keyboard and trigger any (!) workflow you've set up from it.
Also launch/activate/hide apps with a single touch instead of typing it in Alfred (or using a shortkey).

This app hasn't seen any updates for 4 years now, but I honestly haven't found a reason why it should need one right now.

No, it's not a remote control for your MacBook. It's a remote control for Alfred. That's why most reviews are poor starred.

Don’t buy this app if you want to CONTROL your Mac

The app offers the possibility to open stuff remotely on your Mac. But other than that it doesn’t do anything. You can’t control apps so this app to me is totally useless.
This wasn’t clear when I bought the app! I was under the impression that I could control my apps, but I wasn’t... But the worst thing was that they made a refund impossible. All apps can be returned within 24 days, but not Alfred Remote. “When you have downloaded and opened the app, you cannot return it anymore”. What???

My tip: get RemoteMouse. It works perfectly and is FREE.

The Alfred desktop app on the other hand is a great addition to my Mac!
