Fast remote desktop client from the developers of TightVNC. It allows you to access, view and control your PC, Mac and Unix systems remotely. As compared to competing VNC viewers, Remote Ripple offers:
- Clean and simple user interface
- Fast operation even on slow connections
- Smooth desktop scaling
- Low memory footprint
It works via Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G/LTE networks and connects straightly to your remote machines. It does not use intermediate servers and does not route your data to third-party services. While direct connections via Internet may require some configuration, they guarantee best performance and independence from online services.
HOW IT CAN HELP YOU
From time to time, many of us need to access our “big computers” and use some “big software” installed on it. Remote Ripple allows you to do your work remotely. Also, you can:
- Monitor what's happening on your computers while you're away (use View-only mode to prevent from interfering with the desktop).
- Provide remote support to your friends and family. Assist in installing software, fix problems and demonstrate how to set up things.
- Administer servers, workstations and virtual machines remotely.
- Control your home computers while laying in a lounge chair. For example, you can use Remote Ripple as a remote control for your music or video player running on a PC.
- Copy a file forgotten on a remote host (while Remote Ripple does not support direct file transfers, it can help in transferring files with other services like Dropbox or Google Drive).
Install Remote Ripple, and find your own use cases!
To connect with Remote Ripple, make sure your target computer runs a sort of VNC server.
- If the target PC runs Windows, install a VNC server on it. We strongly recommend TightVNC as it provides best performance and compatibility with Remote Ripple. You can download your free copy of TightVNC on its Web site — http://www.tightvnc.com/
- Mac OS X systems already have a VNC server included. It's a part of Apple Remote Desktop service. To enable it, go to System Preferences, choose Sharing, enable Remote Management, press Computer Settings, check “VNC viewers may control screen with password” and enter the password you will use when connecting.
- Most Linux distributions include a number of VNC servers as well. Just install a VNC server from your package collection, and type something like vncserver or tightvncserver (or whatever command starts that particular VNC server). Typically, it will offer you to enter new VNC password and will start sharing your desktop (or create new virtual desktop for you).
- Virtualization systems (such as VMware and QEMU) often include built-in VNC servers, although they may not be enabled by default.

It don’t work outside the house.
App only connects when my iPhone 5 is on the same WiFi network as the computer. It does not connect using LTE or 4G. That’s not what remote is supposed to be, just saying. Huge waste of money. I hope the developers spend my money on something nice for themselves because I got a bucket of dookie from them with it.
Developer Response ,
Unfortunately, it's how VNC works: it needs direct connection between viewer and host. That means, if your host is located in subnetwork with no direct access from the outside, nobody can reach it, which actually pretty good for security.
Moreover, there are at least three ways to connect via VNC to remote host from anywhere in the world: VPN, SSH-tunneling, and simple port forwarding. Please, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, let's solve the problem together.
Doesn’t work at all
Black screen is real. Don’t use this app. I’ve been a long time user of tight vnc and wanted a viewer to use on my devices that complements it. This is not that. You get absolutely nothing for this money. It connects but displays nothing.
Developer Response ,

Where's the computer names???
Only the IP addresses and port numbers show up on the selection list. Who goes by that?? Why isn't the optional name of each computer displayed also??? Please fix.
Developer Response ,
We've fixed the problem with names, and all other noticed problems. Please, give Remote Ripple 3.0 a try, it is much better than it was.
