Here goes another "system enhancement utility" gone abandonware, just like TotalFinder, TotalSpace, Zooom2, Optimal Layout, FinderPop, to name a few. Looking at their blog, Remotix is the only app they care about at this point. I’ve paid for a lot of Mac utility software like this only to end up seeing them become an abandonware. This is why I have decided to never pay for and install “system enhancement utilities" like this on my Mac.
It is a matter of time before the developer finds it either impossible or not worth the trouble to maintain it. Apple updates the OS, and this type of utility is almost guaranteed to break in some way. It is more challenging and tricky to fix because this kind of utilities needs to address far more variables than a typical stand alone application minding its own business within its boundary.
Here is how it always turns out; You buy a piece of software like this thinking you can miraculously improve the user experiences. Then, you start spending more time tinkering and troubleshooting as you use it more. Soon, you become a volunteer beta tester for the developer while you also become unnecessarily attached to its novel, optional functionality. After a while, you stop seeing updates and bug fixes, and then you painfully realize that the developers of the utility abandoned it for one reason or another. You will be left with a lot of frustration as a result of your novel setup ripped apart only because some developers no longer felt like doing anything with it. I'm sick and tired of this classic pattern with indie developers and wasting my time and money in the process.
I found that, in the long run, these “system enhancements” added more complexity, frustration and “needs” to tinker with, and that just one troubleshooting session would erase any little bits of time I might have saved by using this type of utility. I found that I was much better off just making good use of all the default features on my Mac and eliminate the “needs” to use this type of “enhancement” all together. Any small gains in user experience are not worth the massive trade-off of depending on this type of utilities.
