    Native Alternative for Mac Remote Connect

    Couldn’t rate this app better, I’ve been looking for a secure option alternative to using screen sharing native to Mac OS. You may find other screenshqring apps, but this one uses apples native screen sharing server, as long as you have a static IP. If not, they have a desktop app that basically is a DDNS. With this app, I no longer need a Mac to connect securely to another Mac. I no longer use a desktop app because my computers are on a static IP, and I no longer need to pay monthly to a Splashtop or log Me in. This app is the best!

    When It Works, It’s Great

    I’ve been testing it since purchase last night. I like that it supports encrypted VNC on a local network over SSH. The trouble happens when using this app with a Bluetooth-connected Apple Keyboard. So far, about a quarter of the time, the on-screen keyboard tries to pop up unnecessarily. When dismissed the toolbar that includes the only way to gracefully terminate the session is shoved to the top and then scrolled out of the window, obscuring both part of the Remote Desktop and leaving me with no way out but to force-quit the app.

    Handy App by a Great Company

    I have used this app for years to remotely connect to various desktop and laptop Macs. The features and performance are great and Edovia continues to enhance the app on all platforms. The iOS version of this app in particular is rock solid and I love using my iPad to hop on to my Macs and using the same great app and experience on my iPhone in pinch if needed. I also wanted to give a shout out to Edovia. I ran in to an issue with multi-desktop support and they reached out unprompted and help me resolve it, ultimately by rebooting my High Sierra Mac. Thanks guys!
