What do you like best?

It can be run with just the .exe file or you can install (and of course deploy) with a .msi package. Additionally it is possible to connect from IOS and Android to the Windows system.

Connections over the Internet works smooth as to clients on the local network.

The UI interface supports various languages (English, French, German - just to name a few)

An update brought the Inbuild Chat functionality.

Additional should be also mentioned the "Prompt for Permission" and the "TLS Encryption" feature and the whole team is open for feature requests! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For me personally the function to show all monitors at once (if you connected to a client with multiple monitors) is missing Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast user support, UI is end user friendly and self explained, free tool to connect to other workstations over the internet - and also from smartphones if your are on the road Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's very easy and simple to use! Almost as simple as point and click All I have to do is open the client, put in the details of what I want to connect to and BAM, I'm in! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Having to open firewall ports to communicate. If I want to connect to multiple PCs, I have to remember what PC is using what port, grant access through my firewall, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What i like most about Wayk Now is that it allows use on Server OS's for free as it is free to use for Business uses now which competitors dont allow for free, they either restrict with time limits or number of sessions to a certain host. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The fact that the service runs unattended in the background, so it is always available Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Wayk Now works on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android! It is very quick, smooth, and easy to use. You can use it without installation by simply sharing a code, or install it as unattended if you have the enterprise version. It is really not expansive, and awesome support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Unattended is only for Windows... I really need it to work for Mac and Linux. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

While this product is very new in its evolution, I'm very impressed at how stable it is. I am working my way to use this as a replacement for other solutions, but it's not quite there for "internet" connection capability. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As mentioned, I need it to work flawlessly over the internet. This brand new version is/was supposed to add this capability, but after several attempts had to revert to GoToMeeting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

YMMV! Given a little more time, this product will become an A+ in my mind. The folks at Devolutions are awesome. I use another product from them and it is something I can't live without. I have faith that this will hit the mark for me very, very soon! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding a simple, low cost way of providing remote support across OS platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This is literally the best free application I have used for remote access in many, many years. Devolutions has outdone themselves! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there isn't much that one can complain about other than maybe requiring a purchase for advanced features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The ability to connect to remote users quickly and easily. The installation process is blazingly fast and WAYK Den server is outstanding when wanting to connect outside the organization!

By the way, iG2, tried to upload an image and your page dont accept it!! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm easily able to connect to my PC when necessary. If I have to fix an issue after hours, I can easily launch the program on my PC OR the app on my phone and connect from anywhere! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The product is only a 2MB install, so it's a very small footprint. The install is extremely fast. Once installed and running, making connections to remote computers works flawlessly. It's great that you can also save bookmarks for stations that you connect to frequently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There currently is no ability to run in unattended mode, but I do see that this feature will be available in the summer of 2018. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are currently using Teamviewer or a product like GoToMeeting to provide remote support, this product is something you should try. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using the product to support clients remotely to provide tech support/troubleshooting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
