solves problem airdrop can’t solve
I fruitlessly spent hours in different sessions over the past couple of years tyring to get airdrop to work for file sharing between MBA (Lion), MM (Snow Leopard), iMac (Yosemite), MBP (El Capitan), iPhone (iOS 9) and iTouch (iOS6). About a year ago I discovered DeskConnect when doing another internet search to figure out how to make airdrop work. I am 100% satisfied with DeskConnect. I can transfer anything in a split second, except for movie files which might take up to a minute or so (50mbs FiOS). Unlike others, it has never crashed for me on any of my devices since I have installed it. This truly astonishing program is even free! And no pop up or annoying ads. It just works,
One of my most used apps
I commonly have text in Drafts on my iPhone/iPad that I want to send to my Mac. This was always a process before. Now, I use DeskConnect. In fact, since Workflow supports it, I use a Workflow that I can trigger from Drafts, so a single press sends the current text document to my Mac. Minor issue: clicking on banner notification on Mac doesn’t take you directly to the file, just tells you where to click to open it. Highly useful would be an option to copy the text directly from the file, rather than having to open it in TextEdit (Share options are available but copy is not part of the Share extensions).
Crashes on Macbook Pro
Same problem as reported by BIG M37 - sending pic from iPhone 5S seems fine, but can’t do anything with the app on my Macbook Pro without it crashing. Too bad because it looks great and would be if it worked. Running Yosemite on a 17” Macbook Pro and have all the updates. The app seemed to install ok and sits in the top bar like it should until I try to click ‘Recents' to look for a pic sent from my iPhone - then the beachball spins for 1-2 secs and poof, it’s gone. Restarting the app is no help. Restarting the computer is no help. I’ll see how well Deskconnect email support works because nothing in their FAQ addresses this problem...
