Great app with active developer

Not only does this app make it just as easy to use your Mac from your phone, but actually manages to streamline a lot of functions with simple taps from a functions menu. And the app even comes with a list of menus for different scenarios such as when watching Netflix, that when selected show a specialised input screen with features tailored to that situation. But best of all is the fact that the developer has been putting out a steady stream of updates since I got the app a year ago, completely transforming the app, and thus still giving me more value for my purchase all his time later.

Works flawlessly

I hardly ever leave reviews but the developer of this app is worth it. Have been using this for control of my iMac media centre and integrates perfectly. Two thumbs up!
