Comments and Ratings for Apple Remote Desktop

Certainly NOT an Improvement (3.9)
02/03/2017 06:11:10 1/5 By GlennTommey
If you’re thinking of upgrading to V3.9 - DON’T! It’s a step backwards, just read the disscussion boards

Unusable (3.8)
25/10/2016 16:39:00 1/5 By Yeomanry Bank Cottage
When trying to create client installer, I keep getting the error: An unexpected error occurred: the required components were not found. The application needs to be installed correctly. All in all not very helpful, and I can’t find the solution anywhere. I shall be asking for my money back if I can find out how.

Stopped connecting after latest OSX Update (3.8)
25/10/2015 00:04:00 2/5 By Worsfolg
Just sits there in Connecting dialog forever, but can obviously see the Macs and pull info.

Doesn’t work (3.8)
25/02/2015 18:44:00 1/5 By Corey__
Just doesn’t work, doesn’t connect, cannot verify User name and Password.

Terrible update (3.8)
24/02/2015 20:28:00 1/5 By Appmaster500
Doesn’t connect to Macs running Mavericks and for the Macs it does connect to: it is much slower than the previous version. Will need to revert with Time Machine to the previous version until these are fixed.

OK, still pretty slow. (3.8)
09/02/2015 15:44:00 3/5 By FieldAgent
Seems to not be as nippy as previous versions?

Nice app ! (3.8)
27/01/2015 22:52:00 5/5 By Tom_H_
Great, useful app. Thank you.

Change settings doesn’t work (3.7.2)
13/01/2015 10:57:00 2/5 By Robadahobada
Seems ok but the ability to add users etc via the “change settings” command has stopped working! Tried on Mavericks and Yosemite.

Brilliant App so far (3.5.2)
02/07/2014 19:30:00 5/5 By robfollis
Bought, downloaded, fired up fine. Set my Mac Mini to accept remote control. ARD found Mac Mini via Bonjour 2 minutes later was running Mac Mini remotely. Both machines running Mavericks Tried operating remote mac, copying files, and more All works perfectly, so the bad reviews are very puzzling

This is great! (3.5.2)
30/04/2014 20:56:00 4/5 By thewoodman
Not sure why there are so many bad reviews for this. Maybe the previous versions weren’t so good but 3.7.2 is great. Reviews nearly put me off... Just downloaded into Maverics and it’s fine with Mountain Lion and Maverick machines all work like they should! So 10.9 & 10.8 work well but 10.7 machines not see.

From this dev.
