RemoteTap is the first and only "Mac Style" remote desktop management solution for Mac's. Watch the screen, control keyboard and mouse, listen to audio of any Mac in your local network!
What is different in RemoteTap compared to traditional VNC clients? RemoteTap gives you access to many Mac specific features using an interface and controls optimised for small screen devices like iPhone and iPod touch. Take a look at the following examples of RemoteTap solutions, not just features:

APPLICATION CONTROL VIEW - Tired of scrolling around to launch, hide, or quit an application? Let RemoteTap do this work for you. Tap on the "Apps" button, and a list of all running (or all Dock / all installed) applications will transparently overlay the screen. Launch, hide, or quit any application with a single tap.
AUTOFOCUS - Tired of scrolling between different windows, alert panels, and menus? Let RemoteTap do the scrolling for you! It automatically focuses on the active window, zooming and scrolling the screen to make it fit. It even remembers the last zoom and scroll values for each window. This also works for menu windows and between different application.
MAGNIFYING GLASS - Tired of trying to position the mouse cursor precisely? Let RemoteTap help you! Touch and hold in RemoteTap and within half a second a magnifying glass will appear showing the area around the mouse position in 4x zoom. Click, double click, or drag within the magnifying glass.
SPACES - RemoteTap let's you control OS X Spaces (virtual desktops) just like you see them on your Mac. The same works for multiple displays, see their size and arrangement exactly as in OS X and switch between them with a single tap.
AUDIO - Listen to what's going on around your Mac, or watch a flash or windows media video right on your Mac and iPhone/iPod touch.
USER EDITABLE KEYBOARDS - Wish you could adjust custom keyboards to your requirements? With the new RemoteTap you can do that! Even more, you can record keyboard macros and assign them to any key right no your iPhone or iPod.
WAKUP / SLEEP - RemoteTap can wake up your Mac before you login, and put it to sleep when you are done.
APPLE REMOTE - With one tap, RemoteTap will overlay the current Mac screen with a semi-transparent Apple Remote. Use the full screen remote while exactly watching the result in Front Row and all apps supporting remotes.
If your router supports UPnP (or, you setup port forwarding manually), RemoteTap works over 3G/EDGE and Internet as well! RemoteTap works with Macs only, not with PC's running Windows or Linux. RemoteTap comes with a free Mac OS X preferences pane including highly optimised server software.
Detailed setup instructions for usage within a local network and over Internet/3G/LTE are available on our web site. If you still run into problems, drop our friendly support staff a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What's New in Version 5.0.1
* Supports iPhone 5
* Supports Mac OS X Lion and Mountain Lion with new Preference Pane
* Minor bug fixes
3 years later, still my favorite.
Yes it may have taken the developer a couple years for an update, who are we to judge circumstances around that.
That being said, I just updated to the newest version. For two years I've been using iTeleport with mixed feelings. It has a ton of features, but not the features/speed that I love in RemoteTap.
The two main features I was missing from iTeleport:
1) The Magnifying Glass: love being able to zoom in where I need to click without zooming in the whole screen and back out again.
2) Bandwidth limiting/quality: this feature actually works! 95% of the time I'm not on Wifi and have to rely on my 3G connection, RemoteTap hands down is the best performing app on 3G.
As I'm writing this another commonly overlooked feature needs mention: RemoteTap only renders what is visible on your iOS device, it doesn't waste bandwidth and time downloading your computer's full resolution image.
To the developer: thanks for the update, I've already stopped using iTeleport. Can't wait to see what features you add.
If you like wasting money then buy this
The developer pretty much vanished and never updated us. Like the other reviewer, I had to pay money for some other software and jump ship. For fun I just tested remote tap and it does not jump to spaces that are movies/full screen apps like safari using the spaces shortcut. Resolution and detail are really bad as well. My recommendation is to not get hipped like the rest of us did.
Jun 2010 Review: App crashes and does not work correctly on IOS4. The screen colors are all blurred. Emailed developer asking about update, but no response and no news on their website of an update in the works. They had plenty of time with the IOS4 beta and being a remote connection app, one would think they would update it promptly or give us some news. Save your cash.
Best App in App Store
Yes, it took the developer a long time to update, but it was worth the wait because this is and has always been my most used app.
People have said that the developer doesn't answer support emails, and that is completely untrue! I've emailed him back and forth many times and he always answers immediately.
This App does amazing things that no other app does and it is, in my opinion, the best app in the App Store.
