Deals of the Day

  • Stetch

    I prefer iTeleport.

  • Andres

    Teamviewer is much better and its FREE. It works with OSs like Mac, iOS,Windows, Linux,Android,etc. Also Screen VNC is too expensive and there is no meaninful feature justify why should i replace Teamviewer and pay for it.

  • Andres

    Also i forgot to mención that there are more free options like Synergy that are FREE or much more accesible than wasting 20 or 30 dollars.

  • Why not use the baked in remote access, Back to Mac, etc? In sharing mode? I’ve not tried with my iOS devices, is that a limitation? Mac to Mac only?
    I’ve used Splashtop for years, but I also own Screens on Mac, and will certainly investigate your option in more detail, especially with the current iPad Pro, larger iPhone options and faster processing of the A8-A9x SoCs, constant connectivity and a reliable ‘pipe’ to and from the studio would absolutely be a God Send. Others I’ve mentioned certainly have their own quirks;)
