Customer Reviews

Never works remotely, only sometimes works on local network.

I've been having trouble forever with this application. I have Screens Connect on a MacBook Pro and iMac, both running latest version of Yosemite. My iPad and iPhone have the Screens app (so do my MacBook Pro and iMac), and they are able to connect while I’m off my LAN (remote) maybe 1 in 10 times.

I always get Connection Error: The operation couldn't be completed. Connection Refused (Error: 14). Cannot rely on this app. I’ve tested and confirmed my settings on my devices (Mac’s, iOS devices, and AirPort Extreme) numerous times.

Developer won’t help and it’s too late to get a refund. Poor service all around.

Not good like it once was

Way back when this came out I got it and it worked great. But after the first update or two I couldn’t connect to my Mac via Internet anymore. I’ve contacted tech support and all they do is walk me through the setup I did from the user manual. No success. At this point, I can barely connect via WiFi locally, and never through Internet when I’m away. What a shame, because this is a much needed fucntion for those of us work spend 90% of our working lives on the road.
