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.

Foundational App for Mac Ecosystem
Why does everyone not REQUIRE this app if they have more than one Apple device? It is the connecting thread that makes MAC an eco-system and not so many stand-alone islands of information. After a month of flawless use, the app failed to connect. Within minutes of a distress support email to Evgeny, a firewall issue at my end was found as the culprit, fixed and all back to flawless performance. I have recommended Remote Drive to family, friends and coworkers.
Once helper app is installed, works great
I missed the second bale mention of the need for a helper app on the Mac OS side, but once you install that and give it access to Accessibility features on the Mac, it works nicely.
I am a bit worried about what I have done for security when that was installed, so I am keeping my eyes open.
Update: I was impressed the developer reached out to me to explain the Accessibility access is only needed for one of the other App, and he was extremely helpful and polite.
So, when my MacOS UI froze, I came back to the store and bought the Remote Control App to see how frozen it was. Both Remote Drive and Remote Control functioned as normal, but my displays were frozen. But I now have a tool to work through what is now proven to be the UI or the actual GPU.
Great product, well done, I am now a big fan.
Developer Response ,
If you only use Remote Drive and not Remote Control app, you can disable Accessibility permissions - they are only needed for Remote Control.
