yeah, does what it says

it IS just a wrapper application, like others said, and in addition to that, there are no options in itself. Any options and raw functionality required to make a connection is through Apple's Screen Sharing application. It seems like this program was rather thrown together. If a newline character is pasted into the ip address field, it will distort the UI. If you want better functionality, grab something like the enterprise viewer that RealVNC has on their website (the viewers are all free, the though some of the servers are not).

"Built-in" is just what I wanted

I'm using this to attach to the built-in VNC Server in another OSX Lion machine so using the OSX built-in function seems like a great fit. Honestly, I don't know if this is actually a front-end for a built in app (my 10 second search came up with nothing).

I had no trouble getting it to work right away and the performance is good.

1) Free
2) Leverages an OSX Lion primitive function
3) App store approved

What's not to love?

works great, but...

- recent connection list didn't work
- didn't find a way how to save a connection
- and i didn't like, that computer where i connect to, has to give permission first, which is not convenient

pls address these issues, and I will change to 5 starts.

I see people complain and see that it is just a wrapper, but i tried to find the original apple app, and i couldn't :)

ok, figured out how to use the Remote Screen client without this app:
Go to Finder -> Go -> Connect to server -> vnc://ip_you_want_to_connect
