Valuable Addition to anyone needing VNC access

I’ve been using Jolly’s Fast VNC since long before it made the migration to the App store. In this time I have yet to be disapointed with any update or the performance of this application. If you need a VNC app for your mac with a polished and clean interface this is the application for you.

It’s window scaling feature to me is by far more intuative where you can see the entire screen but it moves with you allowing you to work without sacrificing screen realestate. The connection manager is simple and the defaults almost always work. But at the same time if you need more advance options like SSH you don’t need to jump through hoops to setup those commands.

The Cherry on the top. Speed, as the name sake suggests it’s a fast interface with a reliable connection. The options to change the compression modes are easy you can tailor the connection for what you need or what your enviroment is.

Allows me to use my old early 2008 imac as a second screen.

I use JollysFastVNC Pro on my old 2008 iMac as a way to share the screen from my macbook air. Using screen recycler on my macbook air, I wirelessly broadcast the screen through the VNC on the iMac. It is reasonably responsive, although sometimes I find that thumbnails on preview do not always broadcast through to the iMac. A very useful program.

Great Product / Excellent Customer Support

I’ve tried a number of VNC solutions. For complicated VNC server configurations, no product does better than JollyFastVNC. Excellent performance and tremendous support. I had a number of issues with the product initially, most were user error, but the author helped tremendously and quickly with fantastic customer support. Works well with Yosemite too!
