The New Version Doesn’t Pair with My iPhone!!
I am downloading this app for the first time noting the new version.
I have an iPhone IOS 10 and an iMac IOS 10.11.6 and while I can pair my iPhone to my iMac when I try and connect the iPhone to the iMac Iget the following error dialog box
“iMac is not supported”
Am I missing something or is the problem with the app?
