What's New in Version 3.2.2
If you like Screens, please take the time to give us a nice review: it really helps.
Very Good Not Great
As far as straight vnc clients go this one is the best. There are better Remote Desktop systems though that are more tightly integrated like Parallels Access.
This latest update from Edovia is getting things closer and closer to where most people would want it with the new trackpad mode. Their implementation of trackpad mode is very very good. I'd love to see easier scrolling support or an option to change the host resolution on connect. I know that isn't in VNC but should be possible to do using the Screens Connect client on Mac and Windows.
Nice and Efficient App
Although I prefer the interface of the previous version, this app is still very practical, especially if used on the same network.
Screens Connect is not as powerful as the iTeleport Connect, which needs no router configuration, but it works well.
Several possibilities of use for gestures are a good differential.
Switched from Ignition when they wanted a subscription
I have been very impressed with the ease of use of this app, it does everything I need it to do. The updates keep improving the app, the developers really seem to want to improve the experience. Works great on both my iPad and my iPhone.
