An A-OK VNC
Edovia continues to improve an already great VNC app. The addition of a trackpad mode adds flexibility for those times when only a hovering mouse cursor will do. Thank you for years of a great product.
An Indispensable Tool
Screens is, without a doubt, an indispensable tool. It's always there when I need to connect back to my Mac, whether I'm on my iPhone or iPad, and always performs flawlessly.
Love this app. I use it to manage the media center (Mac mini) from the couch, or to access my office PC or my wife's machine (both MacBook Pro) when away from the office. Works great.
