Awesome Little App - This app works just as promised. Just a plain and simple little way to share screens. I love it. Having this saves me so much time to hop around to all my different macs and take care of business. Great!

Misleading & no support whatsoever! Complete waste of money - I have made multiple attempts to contact the seller/author of the software asking for help (setup, etc). No response! I am a novice user that was looking for a simple screen sharing program between my brother and me. I wanted to help him out from time to time as he lives across town but this is not the program that you want. Like I said, save your money and go somewhere else! Sometimes, you pay for what you get. I may just get Apple's Remote Desktop application which has support and proper help.

Pure Garbage - I regret spending money on this. I really do. I have never left a negative comment on anything. Never. This is my first time doing so.

Review by Godrifle

Doesn’t work in El Capitan - When this app worked, it provided a shortcut to the built-in screen sharing in OS X, and I liked it for that alone. BUT, I’ve updated to El Capitan, and can no longer access Preferences so I can’t add more shortcuts to computers I connect to often. Thus, the software is completely useless. Sad, really.
