Does Everything It Promises.

This is an outstanding app! Just read the detailed description of its functions — the app does everything it says it does - videos, music, photo and files. The video quality is excellent, and the screen mirroring works perfectly. This app is the reason why independent developers need to be supported and encouraged to create useful products.

Like A Charm

So far this APP is working like a charm. I’ve discarded other Apps because too much $ and struggled with free Apps that I couldn’t get installed and then, I luckily stumbled on this one…Easy (& quick) to install & easy to understand Preference settings. I had it up and streaming from one of my Favorite Folders in no time. I’m a big fan! Thanks for this awesome App!

Excellent App that’s now also works on Vision Pro

I’ve been using this app for years to access files on my Mac and iPad on my other Apple devices (AppleTV, iPhone, and now Vision Pro)

It provides a seamless connection (stream for videos) for all types of files on drives and devices.

Highly recommend.
