Using version 2.6 with Mavericks and have no problems - love the quick access to all the Macs at home and office. It seems like a simple script with a menu bar item, but it works well so happy to pay the $1.99 as it saves me coding myself.

If you purchased version 2.5, DON'T upgrade to 2.5.1!

it is broken.

I run Snow Leopard (latest version). After I upgraded to 2.5.1 and tried displaying my other Mac on my network, this version launched the app and put the icon in my dock, but never displayed my other Mac's desktop. Even after a reboot, same thing.

I had to downgrade to 2.5 (excellent app) to get Screen Sharing working again using this app.

I just downloaded it, expecting that it wouldn't work with Mountain Lion. To my surprise and delight, it does! It's a wonderfully handy little gadget.

There a "Light ScreenSharing" on the MAS that seems exactly the same.
Is it from the same dev (and I'll gladly pay the 0,79€ for it) or just a rip-off using the source code from this?

I hope this is still under active development. It's a great little utility. Lion update maybe?

A nice, convenient shortcut to my venerable G5! (Though it's also two mouseclicks, as via SHARED and "Screen Sharing...")

actually it's only one mouse click while your Finder two mouse click way requires at least the Finder as the frontmost application and an open Finder window, so the worst case is 4 clicks ;-)

Thanks'!

That's the fantastic little thing I've been looking for since a long time !

Works perfect, goes right in my "can't live without" folder.

Paypaled some buck to developper as it's more than worth it !

i love this little thing. i've noticed it's not 64-bit though. not sure it matters, but when i look at Activity Monitor, there are only a handful of items left that aren't 64-bit yet. this is one of them.

I've used this for a while, it's great, I'm grateful to have it. But I'd prefer a different implementation, that would add a menu item to the Screen Sharing app. saying "connect to X". Reason: then I could assign that command a keyboard equivalent and save myself the trip to the menubar (on a large monitor that's quite a trek).
