re. Bill-CSF-Splashtop for Remote Management.

Why hasn’t Apple developed Apple Remote Desktop for remote management outside a Local Area Network. It is a user-friendly application for educators supporting institution Macs, but what would it take for the app to be updated for true remote management? I resort to Teamviewer.

    Great question. I would add to that: why is there no Apple Remote Desktop app for iPad (or iPhone)? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
