How to use Command-Tab to escape screen sharing
Authored by: joekewe on Jul 12, '13 03:06:25PM

Dear robleach,
These are already true from your list:

2. Drag and drop to copy files to and from the local/remote system.
Works great in 10.8. Both directions.

7. A listing of back-to-my-mac enabled computers to choose from when launching the screen-sharing app (instead of just a box to enter a host URL).
I love "ScreenSharingMenulet". An oldie, but still works fine under 10.8. It lists all recently connected machines and lets you make a list of remote ones in a drop-down menu.

11. The ability to screen-share using a different user account in the background instead of the currently logged-in user.
The OS 10.8 Screen Sharing client already asks which account you want to log into, and goes into the background if it's not the current physical user. This step is skipped if you set a login username and password in Keychain, so check there if you don't see these options.

12. An iPhone app for screen sharing via back-to-my-mac (like LogMeIn)!!!
Any iDevice VNC app like "Mocha VNC" or "iTeleport" connects fine to Mac Screen Sharing servers. I use it all the time from iPhone and iPad.

If you're requests were specific to "Back-to-my-Mac" rather than just Screen Sharing, then maybe you need to run Dynamic DNS instead. The above recommendations find any of my servers regardless of dynamic IP thanks to DynDNS.
