God Bless You!

You can’t imagine what this means to me! I do design work but was disabled a few years ago and can no longer sit at a desktop computer without severe pain. Even laptops are a pain because I still have to sit up a bit. Now I can use my iPad Pro to do most or all of the work required, and be able to grab files as needed and store the projects back on my desktop with perfect ease. I can minimise the amount of time sitting up at my desktop workstation.

So THANK YOU SO MUCH for this app!! It set up easily, the price was very affordable, it performs beautifully and you have allowed me to work so much more comfortably.

No Privacy Policy

No Privacy Policy here in App Store or on the website. Notice that they have a “privacy policy” page on the website that DOES NOT contain information about how your data is collected and used. Here in the App Store: “The developer has not provided information to Apple” …

Users need assurances that the Helper App does not expose their computer to a security concern, and that none of their personal info or files are sent out to others or accessed without consent.

If this app or Helper App on computer collects any kind of data, please say so. Post the policy.

If it can be remotely accessed, or calls home for instructions, or otherwise serves the developer or anyone else, that would be of great concern.

The website also contains no info on the developer other than Twitter and email links. Even the “As seen in press” section is blank.

Is this app safe to use? Does it encrypt the networking link with computer? Does it respect privacy and not send data out? Why isn’t there any info about its privacy policy and security designs?

Update: poor response from dev. Commit to a privacy policy HERE ON APP STORE, commit to a policy to APPLE, be accountable, be clear!

After initial evaluation, looks like this dev is untrustworthy and this software could open devices to a security risk. No info is provided on how security has been implemented for this server/client link.

Don't you have anything better to do? Just use a different app. 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Thank you for the Apple TV support!

The app works well and it’s nice to see development support for Apple TV - utilities like this are very rare on tvOS. Some things about the Apple TV version: The UI could be updated, with perhaps options for background screen color and folder color preferences. Also, the layout could be simplified so that not so much space is wasted on the left side of the screen, allowing more space for listing files. The Mac Helper installer works very well and it’s the easiest, quickest and most reliable method of syncing up an Apple TV to a computer on the same network. Well done and keep up the good work. Utilities like this are very rare and very useful.

Developer Response ,

Thanks, as I created this for my self first - it will be updated and improved over time. If you have ideas about better layout - I would love to see how that looks, you can email me to support@cherpake.com. Would love to chat how this app can be made better.
