    Why is there no iOS app available for SOS yet in the USA? ETA?

    Apple removed our app. We are working with Apple to address its concern around enabling Airplay across network that Splashtop has invented.

    So I bought the SOS license and then no longer offered for download. Team-Viewer, with iOS 11, will be offering iPhone and iPad screen sharing. Since I bout your app, when is this going to be happening with SplashTop?

    We are still working on it, sorry for the waiting. At this time you can still use SOS to connect to Windows, Mac (fully access) and Android devices (some view only).

    we've been evaluating SOS on-demand software for about 1 year now. I reported and waited till some minor bugs were fixed and was really interested for a custom branding feature (still not available) before purchasing a license. I was ready to purchase February this year at the promotion rate since progress was being made and can see you guys are working on making it a great tool, but then the Mobile iOS feature were added and the yearly subscription fee was doubled with no heads up to current trial users (at least not to us) At the time i asked sales if i could sign up without the mobile feature..at the original promo price but they said no. Now I see you don't even have that feature available. Very Disappointing...
