Customer Reviews

Needs cleanup to be as great as iOS version

This is an excellent app, that just needs some extra love to make it work more naturally on the Mac. It's iOS counterpart is the best I've seen! But while the features are mostly all here in the Mac version, and the developer has done a great job bringing it over from iOS, it still needs some more TLC to make it really feel like a Mac desktop app should. -- The experience of talking with the developer and getting bugs fixed has been great though. I'd give it 5 stars, but it really does have enough room for improvement that I think it doesn't quite deserve the 5-stars the iOS version gets. I expect it to get there though considering my positive interactions with the developer! I whole-heartedly recommend the app despite a few shortcomings -- mostly in the UI realm.

Buggy…crashes often

I like this app (I use it on my iPhone, too), but it continues to be very buggy. It crashes often, especially when attempting multiple connections to different servers. The developer has included a crash reporter function in the app which I have reported to them on multiple occasions. I hope that these issues are resolved soon.

Super buggy, not worth it

I absolutely love the iOS version, it actually runs faster than tunneling vnc through terminal ssh/X11 on my desktop, which is why I decided to try the OSX app. But it's in terrible shape, super buggy. The screen wouldn't show anything but black (even though it looks fine in an in-app screenshot), and it got stuck in full screen mode. Stick with terminal ssh + x11 vnc for now...
