Getscreen.me
As long as there is internet connectivity, Getscreen.me is useful for connecting to your desktop or a server in order to work remotely. An example would be a dedicated machine for rendering video. We use Getscreen.me to log in and start the render. Connecting to a client desktop to provide on system support. There is the ability to log and record activity when the application is used, this would be helpful for monitoring activity of a remote desktop tech support team. Reporting is basic but provides enough information to track interactions.

Cons
Getscreen.me
  • Speed - the Getscreen.me solution is an all round winner - however I find that there is a slight lag when controlling a remote PC mouse - compared to the competitors products. If this can be improved on - the GETSCREEN.ME get a 10 out of 10 from us!

Usability
Getscreen.me
The app interface will be familiar to someone has used other remote desktop applications such as TeamViewer. The connection is smooth but performance will vary dependent on Internet bandwidth. Some of the problems we ran into were the white label options. Reading the instructions quickly resolved any setup problems we had. To note, the app (as of this review) does not allow white label branding of the internal dashboard.
