    "This is a nifty app if you want to connect your phone notifications to your computer. You can control your phone with the computer so if you want to text someone, you can type on the computer and then the message will get sent through your phone. There has been some confusion with connecting the devices, but the new updates seem to have remedied the issue. The help desk is also very helpful and quickly responds to customer issues with helpful advise."

    "This is a great tool for accessing all the functionality of my phone on my PC. I find it convenient to use any app on my phone from the comfort of my PC workspace as it's not always the best option to pick up my phone while I'm busy working on my computer."

    "Access to your own phone's computer? That's what VMLite VNC Server does. It sounds rather complicated and also like it is just straight from the NSA. If I can do this to my phone to view it on my computer so can others. I think I'll skip this for my phone. There's enough fingers in it already."
