Great update for an awesome app
I’ve been using remote buddy for almost 10 years now- going strong! This is a great update. Having the phone remote function is perfect when you can’t use an IR remote. This definitely makes my Mac mini a worthwhile media center.
Keep up the great work!
Works like a charm!
If have remote buddy in Mac get this
Very good app. Works very well at controlling your Mac just like a remote control. Also the screen sharing works great very little lag on a home network. Lots of apps it works with and very customizable. But if don't have remote buddy don't bother.
