Customer Reviews

Good App, responsive Developer

This 99 cent app is very worthwhile, especially when coupled with Teamviewer or a similar remote access program, allowing full control of a pc via an iPhone or iPad when traveling. The app absolutely works, although many users may, like me, have to muddle through establishing Wake on Lan (WoL) on their network interface card and their router and BIOS. Once these things are all set and the PC has a static IP address within the LAN, the app works very well. I can now turn my PC off when I go on a trip, turn it on with my iPhone and/or iPad, access files and peripherals, i.e. external HDD, and then shut it down when I am finished. For a non-technical person like me, this is a big step! Equipment includes a Linksys E3000 router, PC running Windows 7 64-bit and iPhone & iPad.

Works flawlessly

Simple and always works. Never had an issue with this app. Plenty of struggles getting WOW (WOL over Internet) to work. Finally loaded wwdrt firmware on my router to enable remote wake up. Before wwdrt I could not get any WOL to work over the Internet. Apparently most home routers block this ability which really makes no sense with the big push to be energy star compliant

Not for most users

This application is far to minimal to function in the kind of network iOs users operate in.

It really only works with static, numerical IP addresses or local DNS severs.

It DOES work well for those, but few Apple devices and networks are configurable that way. It's completely useless for most unsuspecting buyers!

The developer needs to move into the 21st century and learn about Bonjour and Apple's sleep proxies and then rewrite the application from the ground up.

I regret buying it and feel mislead by the product description, especially because I have other App Store products that do implement this function and it works properly.
