VNC Viewer - Remote Desktop
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
VNC® Viewer from RealVNC® gives you instant remote access to your Mac, Windows and Linux computers from anywhere in the world. You can view your computer's desktop, and control its mouse and keyboard as though you were sitting down in front of it.
Just visit www.realvnc.com and download VNC Connect to each computer you want to control. Then sign in to VNC Viewer on your device using your RealVNC account credentials. You'll see your computers automatically appear; simply tap to connect.
VNC Connect password-protects each computer out-of-the-box. You may need to enter the same user name and password you use to log in to your computer. All sessions are then encrypted end-to-end.
During a session, your device's touch screen serves as a trackpad to give you precise control. Drag your finger to move the remote mouse cursor and tap anywhere to left-click (other gestures such as right-click and scroll are explained in-app).

What's New in Version 3.3.2
FIXED: An issue that may cause VNC Viewer to disconnect immediately when connecting to VNC Server 6.2.0
You need to sign up with VNC, and that's easy and free. Works very well for what I need to use it for, which is random laptop check ups, file updating, & web design.
Connects quickly and has a pretty intuitive interface. Not the best graphically, but I don't need that to be upscale & pixel perfect. Very smooth scrolling--impressive. Hit or miss on clicking, especially on the edges of the screen. I have an iPhone SE with a small screen, so that is likely why.
And here we have a fully functional & free Remote Desktop app. Thank you! Works exactly as I imagined it would.
Great app besides feature removal
Devs removed the toolbar to stay at the bottom of the screen. Occasionally pops up if I try to swipe up. Only appears when first connecting. Therefore I have to restart the app for it to appear again. Will gladly change this rating/review if the option is added to the settings or reimplemented or if I am missing something please let me know.
Thank you guys ! I feel dumb for not noticing the pin feature but the response is much appreciated !
Solid and reliable. Run your desktop computer (Windows or Mac) from your iPad or iPhone.
Have your desktop computer with you at all times. Running a Windows or MacOS computer is even better with an iPad Pro. Its literally like having a full desktop on your iPad.
Complete mouse control including click and drag as well as scroll wheel is available as is a full keyboard with all the extended keys you'd expect on a real keyboard.
If you want to access your computer from an outside network, like over an LTE connection you'll need to open up and forward some ports on you home or office router or preferably, for security, use a VPN. Once properly configured, you'll be able connect to and control your personal computer(s) from anywhere in the world over any network.
