Ratings and Reviews
Phone based remote access app
This app is quick to connect, easy to set up connections with and importantly for me, the only one I've found currently that allows you to tap directly to click instead of having to guide a cursor around and tap somewhere on the screen to click on an item where the pointer is.
When it went to a 2 minute time out it was almost unusable for all but a quick check on a running system but now it has a 5 minute time out, which is an improvement as although the original wasn't time restricted, it wasn't fully functional either. The free version is fully functional but if you need more than 5 minutes then the paid version removes this restriction.
In summary, this is a great way to try out the app before paying for the unrestricted version.
Free access to Mac OS X
This does exactly what it needs to if you need to login to your desktop and your graphics driver or card is missing or out of date. Brilliant contribution. Life saver.
Great app, indispensable tool
This app works brilliantly to the built-in VNC client in OSX. With the iPhone 4, it handles my 1440x900 resolution screen with ease and provides exceptional clarity, making good use of the retina display. I find this one of my most useful apps, and if I ever want to connect to a windows pc, I'll not hesitate to purchase the full version. My only niggle with this app was the appearance of the menu buttons, but I'm glad to have found there is an option to 'shake' and show/hide these.
I read another review which said there is no keyboard and it crashes a lot. I can honestly say it's never crashed on me, and there is a perfectly good keyboard built-in, although it would be nice to be able to have a numeric keypad, and arrow keys, but perhaps that's why I should buy the full version.
I occasionally use these guys free RDP app too, and if your a windows user, it's worth taking a look at.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
