Takes too long to try it
I used to have an app called Hippo Remote which worked really well. As it happens sometimes, Apple rolls out a new iOS and the apps you purchased cease to work if the developer does not update the app. So I tried this app. 1. The free version doesn’t let you do anything, it is really annoying, waste of time to install it. 2. I don’t like the yearly payment option where you can cancel after a month - typically you have to fill out a form with payment details (time consuming) + need to remember to cancel outstanding payments, prefer to pay when I need the product). There is no option to try the app for a little while and then pay if you find the app useful. So i decided to purchase the app to try it, to then discover that my MacMini cannot run the helper (you need OSX 10.9 min). True it is stated in the system requirements section but when you purchase the app through an iphone (it is an iphone app after all) you need to click to look for additional information, it is not that obvious. However, the developer suggested I get a refund, which I have done. I praise him for replying to user comments.
Hey, so lets disregard the part that app description clearly states that it requires Mac OS X 10.8 or above, and that the app is free... In case you have bought in app purchase to unlock app features, I suggest you get a refund, unfortunately I can't refund your time, but next time you might want to check the app description before buying something. Didn't want to sound like a jerk, but you clearly looking for someone to blame for something that isn't their fault, and I have enough of that in my life already...
This is an awesome app, makes my life easy. Only issue found was that there are too many different apps when you search this, i had the “lite version” and upgraded within the app, but it didn’t upgrade it to the regular app, it worked like the pro which is fine i think I’m just a little ocd about having the little red feather thing on my app at home screen. This literally has nothing to do with the app, i just wanted to throw it out there that it doesn’t update the app display on the home screen, so don’t upgrade within the app, just go back and search and buy the 4.99 version. Wish i could get a refund on the in app purchase but whatever. Serious though, this app is sick!
Hi, the icon should have been changed after upgrade. Please restart the app and see if it changes, if its not - pls contact me via email@example.com and lets see what's going on.
The app is cool and the concept is genius. The app performs flawlessly once you’ve actually made it through all the steps. My problem is the free version barley even gives you a taste. You can move the mouse but can’t click, you can pause but can’t play, and you can control the volume...that’s it. Don’t download unless you pay for the full version. You’ll waste your time. Sorry. Maybe give us more of a taste. For a second I thought to myself “I’m totally going to buy this app” but you didn’t give us enough leash to get drawn into buying it. Great app, horrible marketing.
Hi, you can use free trial for 7 days to test all the features in the app, and then cancel it, without paying anything.
