Unfortunately the interface has been "redesigned", meaning the buttons have lost their colours and are now meaningless small B&W thingies for me. I had to turn on the text labels and use those. Apple's design trend of eradicating colour in interfaces is beyond bad IMHO. No complaints about performance here.

This is a terrible app. ARD has become slower and less responsive with successive releases to the point where it now takes several seconds to display and activate a menu item on a remote Mac. Windows Remote Desktop is lightening fast, connects instantly and everything is doable in real time without ARD's laggy performance. Waste of money.

I disagree, it gets better as it evolves. I have been using it for years and am perfectly happy with its operation. Please back up your assertions with facts and data. Any remote application is only as fast as the ISP's at both ends.

I use both ARD and RDC and the two are targeting completely different uses, though some overlap. ARD is for managing and maintaining Macs, and organizationally set up to do that as well as screensharing to support users. For the price, it is the cheapest most effective solution around. Is it 100% foolproof? No, but it is a tool I use alone and to augment very expensive management systems. I am so glad Apple keeps updating it.

I've had version 3.6.1 since Aug 23. I don't understand this listing. This version still has problems controlling computers with multi-monitor displays.

The previous 3.6.1 was build 471.16. This new one is 417.19. No idea what's changed, but Apple's page shows the Sept 24 date too: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1595 (And the installer is tagged Sept 19.)

Doesn't show up in my software updates. And isn't 471 later than 417? I'm mystified.

Er, sorry—typo. I meant the newer one is 471.19. Sometimes Software Update lags behind, although since both are 3.6.1 maybe it won't pick it up. This is definitely unconventional for Apple.

3.5.2 update breaks a PLIST setting to keep Command-Tab control locked to the local workstation. It was a hidden preference, only available through the terminal. At least Apple is improving the improvements.

This app works well for my usage, which is mainly as a remote desktop applicaiton. I don't really use the remote administration, but this app is nice in that you can locate other Macs, and either observe or control them (with password). Interesting application.
