VNC® Viewer from RealVNC® gives you instant remote access to your Mac, Windows and Linux computers from anywhere in the world. You can view your computer's desktop, and control its mouse and keyboard as though you were sitting down in front of it.
Just visit www.realvnc.com and download VNC Connect to each computer you want to control. Then sign in to VNC Viewer on your device using your RealVNC account credentials. You'll see your computers automatically appear; simply tap to connect.
VNC Connect password-protects each computer out-of-the-box. You may need to enter the same user name and password you use to log in to your computer. All sessions are then encrypted end-to-end.
During a session, your device's touch screen serves as a trackpad to give you precise control. Drag your finger to move the remote mouse cursor and tap anywhere to left-click (other gestures such as right-click and scroll are explained in-app).

What's New in Version 3.0.1
Minor bug fixes.
Wish I found this sooner!
I use this for personal, home use to view and control my Mac Mini and HP Ultrabook from my iPad. My Mac Mini is used as a media server for all of my music and videos while I use the HP for all other computing needs. When I'm not using them directly, I can access them from VNC Viewer from the comfort of my couch or back porch! I choose which computer I want to access and then type in my password (I choose not to have the app remember), and from there I am in!!!
Also, I contacted their Support team due to my own user error during initial setup (I forgot to add my user credentials). The associate on their chat feature was really helpful. She walked me through the setup steps until I realized what I did.
Great service and product!
Happy LogMeIn Refugee
LogMeIn's policy of frequently dropping support for older platforms and raising prices finally forced me to switch all my machines to RealVNC. It is not quite as full-featured and easy to use as LMI Pro, but considering the much broader platform support, lower price per machine, and ability to buy the specific numbers of licenses i need I am happy with the change.
I do miss several LMI Pro features. Although I have a dynamic IP address, no matter where I was, I could just click on a machine name and be connected. No manual IP tracking, no port forwarding rules in the router. I believe RealVNC is working on this.
The other thing I miss is the easy file transfer. I struggle with RealVNC's interface. LMI Pro has what looks like an FTP client/server that I found very easy to use.
As I said at the top, I can live with this since I can run it on all eleven of the machines I run 24/7 as opposed to only two still supported by LMI at only half the price for each machine.
Simply the best
I tried all the other VNC programs. Nothing compares to RealVNC. The interface is intuitive, and the iOS mouse-to-finger adaptation is spectacular. Scrolling, clicking, and even right-clicking (two finger tap) are crucial to effectively using a touch screen to control a keyboard and mouse on a computer miles away!
I have high(!) standards for the productivity of my hardware and software. The tools I use must be efficient and optimized. RealVNC has won my heart for remote access.
