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...")

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).

Previous versions were very useful, buy annoyingly slow. Version 1.6 is just as useful, but now FAST as well! An excellent update! This developer has my thanks for making such great tool, and version 1.6 definitely warrants a donation!

I have tried previous versions of ScreenSharingMenulet several times, but each time I tried it I uninstalled it within hours. The reason was that the list of local hosts used to take a long time to refresh, by which time I could have initiated screen sharing through the Finder and been well on my way. Well, version 1.6 fixes all that. I am guessing that it's the new "static mode" feature described in the release notes. Whatever it is, now all local hosts appear immediately. There's no delay whatsoever, and the list refreshes immediately when computers join and leave the local network. ScreenSharingMenulet now has a permanent place in my menu bar. My only (minor) complaint is that there is no way to customize the display of information. I would prefer not to see the IP addresses for each host, and would welcome an option to turn them off. I'd also like an option to not show the Recent Hosts menu.

Please add a "connect to ip" option for cases where you want to connect to a server outside your local network :)

This a welcome utility: it allows me to remove the Screen Sharing icon from my Dock, and the fewer Dock items the better. I have only one niggling little complaint: I already have several other dock items (Overflow, Camouflage, Spaces) which are screen-shaped rectangles, and this creates a potential for confusion. So I'd be a litle happier if this Menulet had a more distinctive icon.

It would be nice if the application use standard OS X pull down menus instead of the animated menu. It worries me that it may not remain compatible after an OS upgrade.
