What's New in Version 3.6.5
Fixed a crash on launch and rendering issues for our users that could not wait to install a certain public beta from some fruit company ;)
While we, like yourself, are anxious to try the latest OS release, you need to understand that apps may break and that it may take a while to fix issues and that they can appear every time a new beta is released.
If you find a bug while running the public beta bits, please send us a bug report at email@example.com instead of letting us know via an app review, to which we cannot reply anyway.
A must buy. Plus, great support!
I don't normally right reviews (even though I should). But this one is a must have.
The clean interface and ease of setup by far trumps any other app in this field.
I've used many remote control apps for computers over the past few years. None of them truly "get" the experience a user wants while using an app such as this. Screens is the only app I'll recommend to others now.
From the shortcuts on the bottom screen (not obtrusive in anyway) to the amount of control you have over your experience. It's really a no brainier. Not to mention the Windows & Mac clients as well. But those will be separate reviews.
Of course, I can't forget to mention. Even though some of us are impatient and curious and chose to install a certain beta software on an important platform we maybe using this app on. Edovia still supported us with an update to solve a bug that was inevitable with beta software.
Anyway, thank you for all your great work, effort, & care for your customers.
For years, I've tried solutions to access my iMac remotely from an iPad. More specifically, I am accessing a virtual machine (VM Fusion Windows 8). All in all, an elegant, simple solution, and a great value for the money. These guys are responsive if you have a problem or question, something you don't expect in an inexpensive app.
App is fantastic and the developer is very responsive.
I've never had an issue getting this app to work. Only issues I've had have been user error, oops.
Must have if you need to access your computer on the go or just lazy to get off your couch.
