Editors' Review

CrossLoop provides a quick, easy, and completely free way to give a colleague, a friend, or a relative access to your computer. After installation, your PC will be assigned a 12-digit access code each time you start the program. You then give that number to another user to virtually share your desktop. Once connected, that user will have full access to your machine.

The odd nature of sharing a desktop cursor and the inability to add multiple users makes CrossLoop illogical for proper business presentations. However, the complete system access and 128-bit encrypted connection combine to create a great solution for low-budget, long-distance tech support. Guests can use any app and save files on your computer, as if they were sitting in front of the machine. No router configuration is required--a big plus. File transfers are now supported, but the purpose here remains collaboration: CrossLoop doesn't work without explicit permission from the host.

Since simplicity is a key attraction, it lacks more advanced features, and the connection must be made in two minutes or it times out. While the interface and the features are simple, CrossLoop offers a secure and fast method for two users to collaborate on one PC.

"Worked well for 1 year -now no function and no support."

January 16, 2014  |  By jlvincentjr

 |  Version: CrossLoop 2.82

Pros

Pro version was a deal in 2013; worked well enough (although sometimes a little slow), and for the money, was unbeatable.
Occasional connection issues were easily fixed with app deletion, residual file deletion, and app re-installation.

Cons

As of January 13, 2014, Pro version became completely non-functional for me. No access from 2 independent computers and no response to repeated requests for support.

Summary

Hope they get it fixed sometime. Was a pretty good product if you
were willing to exercise a little patience. For business use, however, utility is questionable unless you can tolerate multi-day shutdowns with no support -- and that for the paid version!

"JonCTS Nailed it"

July 10, 2013  |  By Teratosis

 |  Version: CrossLoop 2.82

Pros

I am a paid user. Even so, If you have any questions they will never respond to email.

Cons

I am a paid user. Even so, If you have any questions they will never respond to email.

The remote connection always runs through their server and is deadly slow. Can not connect PC to Mac. Although when I first started using this in 2010 it worked fine. They updated and changed the way the program works, pretty much broke that feature. They do not even have a community forum for support. TeamViewer though more costly is way better.

Summary

I am a paid user. Even so, If you have any questions they will never respond to email.
