  • Nice app.
  • Thanks I'm the developer of the app. There's a new feature or two in the pipeline and I have plans to improve remote dialler in a number of ways. Watch this space

  • Similar to Share Across Devices, but with app services. Cool
  • I've got some new features and big improvements to existing features planned. Please consider leaving a review if you enjoy the app, and send feedback if you have any issues or suggestions
  • SWEET!! Finally something that MSFT "promised" long ago via Cortana.
  • Cortana was supposed to do this with the pick up where I left of feature.
  • It works for me, but only between PC and SP3. Mobile doesn't show even Edge tabs which is shame.
  • I miss the tab sync!!
  • it doesn't work !
  • oh this app is so cool and works like charm.
    Thanks for mention this, would never have found this.
  • This app seem to work with devices (PC/Phone) that are running Anniversary Update. And if both devices (PC/Phone) are running Creator Update? Will continue to function correctly?
  • have all devices on CU and it works...
  • Thank you!
  • Good one! But I have nobody to share contents with... All the people I know use androids :/
  • Not available in my region. That's sad.
  • Hi I am the developer. Which region are you in? I had to exclude it from certain regions due to the remote dialler function accessing the phone line function
  • I live in Turkey. Is there anything I can do to get the app?
  • Hi, I'm the dev. Please consider leaving a review if you enjoy the app, and send feedback if you have any issues or suggestions to give me a chance to fix your issues before leaving a negative review etc. Many thanks and hope you enjoy the app
  • Hello, installed this today and seems to work well with Edge. I have also tried to share from Epicurious app on phone to Laptop and opened webpage of course on Laptop, very cool.  I have tried the remote dialer from PC to phone as well and it appears that the Hand Off app on phone  needs to be open even if in the background for that feature to work.  If there is spaces in the phone number as there sometimes may be, there is a format error when it comes up on the phone's phone app.    Also, I am trying to get the clipboard to work but I have not figured that out.  One more thing, in the store, it shows your website address which links to a rather informative blog which was last updated in 2013. Just saying.   I assume that this program utilizes just Microsoft services and does not bounce of yours or other's servers? Thanks for the great App.
  • For remote dialler it should still work even when the phone is locked (you need to unlock it after triggering it of course) or when its unlocked without the app in the foreground so I'll look into that in case it's a new problem in Creators Update or something. The remote clipboard text actually went into the description by mistake, although I do have the code written for that and it'll be released very shortly in the next update. You're right that the app just uses Microsoft services and nothing gets sent to my server or anything like that. It makes use of APIs built into W10 from Anniversary Update onwards so nothing is sent via third parties.
