Overall Satisfaction with GoToMyPC

I use GoToMyPC to access my office desktop from all over the world. I've used it from Mexico and all throughout the places in the US I've been to over these past few years. I do not recall exactly when I started with GoToMyPC, but it has been a few years.
  • Easy to log into.
  • Pretty seamless "view" of my screen on my desktop PC in the office.
  • It used to be pretty reasonably priced ... but got quite a bit more expensive in the last year or two.
  • The "screen" resolution seems like it could be a bit clearer when using. GoToMyPC
  • Pricing of the product
  • It has worked for me as I've needed it.
  • When I've had to switch desktop PCs within the GoToMyPC dashboard, it has been pretty seamless.
I used to have a "hardware-based" VPN from my home to the office, and I certainly have preferred this software/app based alternative.
Overall GoToMyPC has been a good application for my use. Again, I just think it got a bit more expensive than I'd prefer. I am looking for alternatives now.
I tried just tonight to get information on the use of GoToMyPC while on a Surface in New Zealand with no success. That was disappointing as I would have thought that the automatic "text" would have had information on using GoToMyPC from other countries.
