" can control your media, your other applications and your computer all from your phone. Brilliant."

Works very well


I hate also to be bugged with pop ups but anyway i bought the full version and it is good! Fast and reliable, works realy well and is very useful. I can have a full remote actions on my iMac, except the right mouse click i am not sure if it is possible somehow... Could not go over internet yet by local network incompatibility. Recomended!



This thing is more or less completely useless -- basically any feature other than simply looking at your desktop requires you to buy the full version. That they had the audacity to actually charge for this lite version before is beyond me.

Greatest app ever


I just wanted something to control the volume on my desk top while I was on my bed watching movies and junk. But man, this app takes the cake.
