Customer Reviews

Excellent tool for busy professionals

I need a VNC client that is efficient and when I can find one that’s also fast, solid, reliable, and elegant - it’s an extremely valuable tool for me to get work done remotely. The engineering and design is top-notch and the developer continues to improve the app in small and large ways. Best of the best in terms of my app store purchases.

I also depend upon Apple Remote Desktop, but I find myself choosing Screens for remote control as it’s less buggy, faster and more responsive than Apple’s tools - especially for lower bandwidth connections. The full zoom panning in a small window of Screens is amazingly fast and lets me get my work done without waiting for a slow connection to repaint part of the screen that’s not visible in a smaller window.

The perfect tool to quickly, remotely access local machines

I use this almost daily to access my media center Mac Mini (located in the Livingroom without a monitor). A wonderful tool. Also try the iOS version which is equally great.

Please change the icon back

I love this app, but the new icon is so awful that I have to hide it inside a folder in launchpad.
Please change it back!
