Customer Reviews

Can, but why?

I know this app hasn’t been updated in a while, but it is a missed opportunity. The level of remote access that this has to my Mac could be used to do so much more. For starters, even having remote trackpad and keyboard and put on the phone or a presentation clicker mode would go along way to making this in your replaceable companion to the Mac Alfred experience.

Turn phone into a remote control for your Mac

It takes some investment into the desktop app to really see the power of this app. Anything that can be automated with Automator,scripts, or Alfred workflows can be triggered remotely from your phone.

Works great

Connected right away, found some useful workflows — all great. Works as advertised.
