I can run my law practice at home on my Mac with GoToMyPC

I started using it as a necessity during the pandemic shut down. It's now enabled me to keep my home office running and I love being able to work from home.

PROS

I can use my Mac at home to run my PC remotely. The Mac doesn't run my legal management software. But using GoToMyPC, I can open my work computer from anywhere my Mac or my MacAir Laptop or even my iPad goes.

CONS

My office computer does have to stay on all the time. It does sometimes (rarely) lose the connection and I need to reinstall GoToMyPC. I think that's happened three times since I started using it 3 years ago so that's not so bad!

The best for remote access

I've used quite a few other remote desktop programs, but for ease of use, and features, I haven't found anything as good as GoToMyPC. It has all the features that I need, such as remote printing, screen blanking and dual monitor support. I can also use it wherever I need, and don't have to worry about purchasing a bunch of licenses if I need to use different PC's to access my work computer.

PROS

It's extremely reliable and easy to use. The fact that I can use it anywhere with any PC is exactly what I need.

CONS

Occasionally, especially with software that converts to a PDF before printing, it can take longer than I would like for the print to start printing.

Reason for choosing GoToMyPC

Remote PC is an inferior product. It loses the connection quite often if the remote connection is not perfect. It would drop my connection and freeze at least twice a day. I have never had that issue with GoToMyPC.

Reasons for switching to GoToMyPC

TeamViewer is not nearly as fluid and easy to use. GoToMyPC is a much better product, especially if you need multiple displays. I can drag windows across screens with ease, unlike TeamViewer that only drags part way, and then you have to click on the window again in the other monitor to finish dragging it.

Useless crap

Horrible. No support. Yesterday's "degraded performance" debacle was the last straw.

CONS

This product WAS useful. Years ago, before it was purchased by whomever... Between the down time and cost I wouldnt recommend this useless app to my dog.

Reason for choosing GoToMyPC

I actually just switched to Anydesk. Love it. You people need to regroup. Or something.

Why I love and Depend on GOTOMYPC

I have been using GoToMyPC for many years and could not perform my work without it. It is reliable, functional, easy to use and extraordinarily secure.

PROS

Using GoToMyPC is like having my primary computer right there on another screen. I have been using GoToMyPC for many years now and completely depend upon it. It is secure, responsive, fast and easy to use. I like the easy file transfer capabilities and the convenient connection to my remote computers. I completely depend upon GoToMyPC and cannot imagine trying to work remotely without it.

CONS

There is nothing I can say negatively regarding GoToMyPC.
