doesnt work as intended

1
the games i tried to download with parallels dont fully load and i cant revert it back to windows 10

Payment Required to Function

3
I downloaded this so I could play certain games that Apple doesn't support. After everything was complete, it was asking for subscriptions which I clicked off of only to find out it is pay gated. By labeling it as a subscription and letting you click off of it, it makes it seem like it would be free to use. There should have been more emphasis on the required subscription.

Installing Windows 11 was pretty simple even though it wasn't automatic.

An amazing app through and threw

As someone who used linux for years, and loved gaming on windows it is amazing to have somthing which allows you to do both so smoothly. While yes it can be pricey, I think that it is the right price for a quality product.

Working well

The MS Office on Macs is too buggy I found better luck using them in VMs.

14 days trial?

1
Why should I increase my Apple balance at the start of subscription? Only after testing the app in 14 day trial, I could decide whether to increase my balance. Then I quit.

just recently switched to mac because of parallels. in windows or linux I always used oracle virtual box vm to run other OSs and I asumed I would use it her eon mac but I decided to try parallels even though it wasnt free and wow everything is so easy and perfectly integrated. this is one app I will pay with pleasure.

Super simple

It is very easy to use and manage. I can easily free the mouse and switch between the host and the VM. Most configurations were pre configured making it great for beginner like myself.
