A Complete Ripoff - Don't Buy It!!!
I should have read the reviews like I normally do, but I got so excited about the flight sim control I failed to do it and consequently I'm out of $2.99.
I followed the download instructions and entered the info as instructed and the app keeps crashing. It doesn't give you the ability to adjust the settings in the app as the instruction states it will crash if it can't connect to your wireless network. I'll try to remove the app and reload it and reenter the info. If it works I'll come back and edit my review. Otherwise don't buy this app which offers no type of support at all! I went to the website to no avail.
not working and zero support
Just brought this app and couldn't get it to work after installing Key Master Mac 3.0 on my desktop mac. There isn't any instruction or FAQ for what to do when I can't make it to work. It stalled after I inputed the server name and the password generated by Key Master, then crashed or quit itself. No error message of any kind. On their web site there is no further information to help the user. Not even an email address posted for seeking help. Very UN-professional for something that cost money :(
I really want it to work as I love google earth flight sim a lot. Correct me if I am wrong.
Rip off! I bought the app not knowing that it only worked on Mac! So I WASTED $2.99 on CRAP
