Ratings and Reviews
Broken on Sierra
Worked great for a long time, but this app under MacOS Sierra is not working for me. It simply can’t connect to our server after I upgraded to Sierra. Hopefully they will update it soon, but considering Sierra has been a public beta for 6 months, I don’t think this developer is interested in real support for Mac.
Great AS-400 Emulator
I know of no other emulator for AS400 systems so as long as it works, right? You can't go wrong with this one. I started with the Lite version but quickly found out that F-keys do not seem to work, bummer. They totally work on the paid version! Using the terminal app on my work PC is a huge hassle. It's great to know I can do this with my MacBook. The SSL setting does not work with our system.
Our company works in AS400 and will for some time to come. It's great to have this product, I have no problem paying the costs. I just set this up but so far it's performing as expected. Thanks for this app!
The update stinks, crashes all the time!
I can’t even use it anymore. I plan on uninstalling…. If I can’t revert back I will no longer use it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
