What is XCodeClub.com?

Rent your own private Virtual Mac with latest XCode. Get full admin right to install anything and to compile, debug, codesign and upload your apps to AppStore! The next best thing after owning a Mac. Come chat with me on my site.

Connect remotely to your own Dedicated Cloud Mac Virtual Machine running latest licensed macOS with XCode and Xamarin, Visual Studio for Mac, With your own private iOS Simulator.

• Completely configured and ready to use • Upload to App Store • Build and sign your app with your Apple's IOS Developer License, Certificates and Provisioning Profiles • Set any screen resolution, for example 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and work with full comfort on a big screen • Download and Install what you want • Have full root admin access to it with provided admin password This means you get full control of your Mac, so you can install any SDK, API or any app that you need

It's just like having your own personal private Mac!

Details: • Connect remotely using a very simple app from Teamviewer; other options available on request • Test your app on your device using TestFlight in ITunesConnect • Use Teamviewer's file transfer feature to transfer your code and ipa back and forth easily • Nobody else has access to your VM or even knows that it exists • One simple web page as a control panel Click a button to start up your virtual machine whenever you want to You don't need to fiddle with FTP logins, folders, VNC ports, and other nonsense Everything is in just 1 web page! Amazing! • I don't count or limit your time. Just don't use it as a 24/7 server. If you have to work for half a day no problem. It's just not suited for people who will be using it non-stop for days every day, or who will be overloading it with non-stop compilation jobs making it a node of a server farm. • Cancel anytime right from your own Paypal account and there will be no more recurring payments. So no strings attached and no commitments. • If you have special requests, let me know

First of all I tried MacinCloud and was I disappointed to find it unbearably slow. I was half considering giving up on iOS app development as I couldn't afford a mac or mac rental and I'm not to keen on other IDE's. Luckily I gave XCodeClub a punt and was very happy with it's performance.

This is the fastest cloud Mac service we tried. We have been with them for over 2 years, and are very happy with the service.

I have used MacInCloud in the past, and they were a really great fit until the base package no longer supported the minimum XCode version required to publish an app. I tried XCodeClub as an alternative, based on the reviews, but was rather disappointed.

The default remote control software (TeamViewer) is not free for commercial use, so you technically can't use this for work-related purposes. I had the owner install NoMachine as an alternative with a slightly less restrictive license. Properly secured RDP would have been a much better choice, in my opinion.

In my experience the VM was very slow. Much slower than MacInCloud. There are no refunds, so I just worked with it for the one month I purchased, but I probably won't be going back.

Finally, the security of the machine was concerning. I won't go into details here, but on multiple levels some very basic security practices were not being followed.

Ultimately I got the job done, but next time I need a remote Mac I will be looking elsewhere.

Honestly, the website looks old and "scary" at first - especially if you pay using Authorize dot net (the other one that's not PayPal) that he provided.

But after the payment, everything was done through email - in English of course. He responds to everything within 24 hours in my experience, which is good considering time zone differences because it's Internet, and we may live worlds apart.
The email you provided during payment process is his primary contact point - receipts, payment failed reminders, login info, etc.
He listed his phone number on the website but haven't used that because international calls are expensive.

The Mac he gave me was fast even at the lowest tier for my use case, which is running Xcode. The only thing limiting is your own internet speed and reliability. When my Internet is fast and reliable, it feels almost as if my computer was a Mac. There was some delay due to internet, but I didn't notice it very much.
You connect to the VM via remote access software like TeamViewer. This speed is more than enough for me to code on it and sync files fast (not slow). Maybe try those software between your devices first.

You'll get access to the web control panel which is where you Start and change screen resolutions of your VM. It, too, looks "not modern" just like the main website, but it gets the job done just like before. You can start or stop the VM as many times from there as you want. The VM requires 3 minutes to start. And don't leave the machine idle for too long (30 min. if I remember correctly) or it will get shut down automatically. There will be a prompt checking for your presence and a grace period before it gets shut down. This is not your 24/7 server.

You'll also get root username and password of the Mac for full control. I can install everything I needed, even ordinary apps like Firefox browser. So if you don't want to fiddle with remote desktop software's file transfer system, just install cloud storage apps like OneDrive or Google Drive and sync it up.

The Mac VM he set up is ready for me to use running the latest versions, though he won't "maintain" the VM for you (e.g. logging in while you're away and install software & system updates) - the Mac is yours. You have to ask him if you want to update macOS if I recall correctly.

The service feels more manual and very "human"; probably because for most stuff I contact him via email which he writes himself, not just click some buttons on a website and wait for the automated process to complete.
He doesn't sugar coat, he isn't rude, and he will cancel your subscription with no questions asked. Just make sure you've backed up the files just to be safe because he's going to delete it after he got your confirmation.

I've paid using Authorize dot net option once and have to email him to cancel because the payment gateway doesn't provide a way to.
I don't think you'll have a problem if you gave him some days of time to wake up from time zone differences and cancel it for you.
If you've used that non-Paypal option and your card fails, you have to go there and subscribe again just like you're a new user because the payment gateway doesn't give me or him the option to retry. He just locks the machine from me and after I retried and the card went through he unlocks the VM for me to use again.

Communication is key - you're essentially dealing with a real human who runs the service himself, not some soulless person in a call center who don't understand the service and can't understand your feeling. Don't be rude. Think of the human.
And don't demand refunds - he said that he won't give it on the website which you should take time & read all of it to not miss any details.

Overall, I find it a very great service if you want to use Xcode or do things that can only be done on Macs. I haven't tried any other competitors yet though, so I don't know if their offerings are better.

Recommended for students who otherwise are going to buy new MacBooks to flex at others at the school. The savings can be used for other things. I've heard that they give free Wi-Fi at campuses nowadays.

XcodeClub is by far the fastest, most reliable cloud mac service of all I tried so far. You get full admin pass to your mac, which means you can install any SDK you want without asking permission or contacting support. And their support is not just 'present', it's actually very useful for a change, how refreshing! Highly recommended.
