"don't even bother!"

December 03, 2013  |  By Jack2f

 |  Version: Thinking Home 2.2.4


The features if they worked more than 1% of the time


everything! Mainly the fact that this product doesn't work and has virtually no support or knowledge base. Connection problems are continuous, troubleshooting impossible and there is no info.
I used it twice: probably about 1 hour successfully and about 10 troubleshooting in the dark... At least X10 had a bunch of info and you could find info to solve problems.

"Great to See Thinking Home Updated!"

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using Thinking Home for years...started using it on an old Mac Color Classic. Thinking Home worked when I moved to a PowerPC and their OSX version worked when it was time to move forward. Now that I am starting to use CF blubs and moving away from Active Home, Thinking Home has once again stepped up and works great in 10.5.2.

Thinking Home just plain works and is very simple to use.
