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.
Useful App - Need to fix current Yosemite issues
I would easily give this app a higher rating once the publisher fixes the current issues with creating & editing connection profiles.
The crashes started happening after one of the Yosemite point releases and I’m still getting them each time a connection profile is saved. Note that the app is correctly saving these profiles so is usable but the frequent crashes are annoying.
As far as serving its intended purpose this is an excellent app.
Only other issue I haven’t been able to resolve is that it will connect to Yosemite screen sharing but only displays a blank screen. Seems like Apple has done something with VNC screen sharing that Remoter hasn’t caught up with yet.
I’ve been using this app for quite some time and it is very useful and versatile. Willing to give the developers to get these issues worked out so I can get the full value from it once a again.
The app works most of the time without any issues. However, there are those occassions where the app will crash unexpectedly. The good thing is that, if you were making changes to server’s configuration, the change was saved before the crash. For the price, it is a pretty good deal all issues considered. It would be nice for some interface enhancements and some additional features, but it doesn’t look like the developer is working on the app any more.
