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.

"Very simple to use."

August 31, 2011  |  By wa51yjo

 |  Version: CrossLoop 2.80

Pros

Great help over internet in fixing my friends PC problems. Vista to XP

Cons

Was a little confused initially as to who did what to establish the connection but once I read the instructions correctly it was straightforward.

Summary

Certainly good for the use to which I put it. The lack of file transfer in the free edition could be a hiccup but, you can't have it all for free !

"Simple remote connection"

August 01, 2011  |  By fred64ha

 |  Version: CrossLoop 2.80

Pros

Easy to use. Site sets up a peer to peer secure connection.

Cons

no file transfer capability in the free version. Slower that teamviewer. free version

Summary

I was checking out remote access products to support friends and family. Crossloop free worked, but had no file transfer. TeamViewer was just as easy to use, seemed quicker and included file transfer (not the fastest file transfer), but good enough for my needs.
