What's New in Version 4.5.1
Screens 4.5 contains some new cool features and full iOS 11 compatibility. We hope you enjoy this new version!
Drag and Drop
You can now drag and drop images, text, links and other elements into Screens. When you're connected to a Mac, perform a drag over the connection view and Screens will then use clipboard syncing to send the content over and paste it where the cursor currently is. While performing a drag, you can also interact with other fingers in order to prepare the location of the drop on the remote Mac.
Screens now lets you use a 2 finger tap on a saved item in order to display actions to be performed (duplicate, edit, ask to share screen, etc.).
- Added iOS 11 compatibility.
- Drag and drop in the Library view has been updated to use the iOS 11 APIs, which lets you interact with more than one item at once.
- Added Return, Hide and Hide Others toolbar shortcuts.
- Added cursor tracking speed setting for Mobile Trackpad.
- Fixed toolbar shortcuts when Dvorak is enabled.
- Fixed some missing Modifier Key+Space/Delete hardware keyboard shortcuts.
- Added Ukranian keyboard support.
- Fixed Danish keyboard mapping.
- Enhanced connection speed and responsiveness.
- Stability and general improvements.

Best iOS VNC Client by far.
Been using this app for years. Touch input is fantastic, and the gestures to show/hide dock, menu bar are really great and a small detail I appreciate. I’ve had some issues with lag/windows hanging on screen (finder windows especially) since version 4.4.4, and iOS 11 has affected some of those swipe to show hide menu bar/dock gestures, but this has happened in the past with prior versions of the app and I know the developer will work it out in future updates. Bravo for a great app.
Professional workhorse and nimble - 5 ⭐️ 💯
Clean design, quick performing, powerful, automated and reliable. Excellent value for me. I work as much as I can from my iOS devices and need to access other computers. Far better than the lesser priced options. This app and Microsoft Remote Desktop cover all my screen sharing needs.
Decent Features, Bad VNC Performance
Using an iPad Pro 10.5”, IOS 11.0.3, and Screens 4.5.1. Screens is *much* less performant than “VNC Viewer” on the same iPad, controlling the same machines (OSX and Ubuntu). Unless this is an isolated case, I’m confused how this app has a nearly 5 star rating. Sure, VNC isn’t the fastest way to control a remote machine, but Screens redraw/performance is noticeably worse than the competition :-(
