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'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.

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.

This is a great application for both small network/home use and enterprise use. Easy to remote access a mac, super easy to deploy software.

I'm confused by the pricing of Version 3.5. Is $79.99 upgrade pricing? If not, is 3.5 limited to 10 clients, or is it really possible to buy ARD 3.5 for an unlimited number of clients for $79.99, compared to a whopping $499.00 for Version 3.3?

@MacUpdate -- The DOWNLOAD link does NOT work. It downloads the Remote Desktop Client NOT the Admin (server). In addition, the link to the Apple website brings up Remote Desktop v3.3.2 not v3.4. Please fix.

So far so good - 3.3 would beach ball on me, this version seems more stable and faster.

So far so good. The fix for crashes due to screen resolution is a welcome addition. Now, did this fix the issue where client workstations stop responding (even in environments where multicast is allowed on the switches)? Don

Does anybody know, what exactly the difference is to the built-in screen-sharing feature of Mac OS/X? Thanks in advance ...
