Superb in every way
REALLY happy with this app and the recent free update to Screens 4.
Tried many free and paid VNC apps over the years and this one is the best.
Overall, I'm glad I spent $20 to support the development of a great VNC app. This one is loaded with features and has great design.
Best VNC app.
The simplest, most complete VNC app. Versions 4.0.3 and earlier were a bit buggy. 4.0.4 seems stable for my use cases. If this holds true, I'll give it the 5 stars it deserves.
