Steven - good info, but still very curious as to Tim's original question -  

Does it let you share user info across different devices, or would I need to purchase additional users?

That is, can I have one account to access my remote sites, and use that same account on my laptop and tablet and phone without buying 3 licenses?

With the Splashtop Business model,a single user can login to the several machines assigned to that user in the Splashtop account.  Currently, a "pro" plan user can remotely access 10 different computers.  To add additional hosts, you would have to purchase additional "users" to be able to assign those additional computers.  LogMeIn is host-based-- pay-per-host makes sense with a server that many users will be accessing.  Splashtop is user based-- pay-per-user makes sense when one user needs access to several servers.

When I started using Splashtop, I recall that it was $60/yr for 50 hosts.  That changed to $60/yr for 10 hosts a couple years ago.  And it looks like Splashtop just recently changed/segmented its pricing when it added new features.  Before August 20, 2018, the pricing was $60/yr for one user to access up to 10 computers.  This is now cut to 2 computers, and a $99/yr plan has been added with updated features and allowing for up to 10 computers.  (For existing users, it looks like the $60/yr, 10 PC pricing is grandfathered provided the new features aren't required.)

Splashtop isn't immune to pricing tweaks, but they aren't nearly the jaw-dropping levels of LogMeIn price increases.

Started the 7 day free trial of Splashtop Business. Noticed the cost is per user. Does it let you share user info across different devices, or would I need to purchase additional users?
