• Windows and Linux PCs can only send or receive text and URLs.
• Screens will not receive any sound from your computer. This is a limitation of the RFB protocol the app is using.

Worth it

Even though I had some technical issue, support stuff replied swiftly and helped me to figure out what caused issue and solve it.
Also, eventually, this is a matter of preference, but as you can confirm the GUI is sophisticated and beautiful which makes it intuitive. I definitely recommend this app.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Please follow the procedure to create a key pair like instructed in our related support article:

As for iTunes, you are correct that this is no longer valid but since macOS 10.14 Yosemite you can use Finder instead to import files to apps on your iOS device, including SSH keys into Screens. We updated the article to reflect that change and will update our app UI in our next update.

As long as you follow the procedure you should be able to import your private key.

Too many updates killed it

It was working fine for a couple months and after a couple of updates it’s now broken.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Actually, it seems like the issue wasn't with Screens but your router not willing to open a port for Screens Connect to use while you connect remotely. When you contacted us, we advised to reboot your router, which seems to restore connectivity. Now that the issue has been solved, please consider changing your review. Thanks!

Not cheap...

But you get what you pay for.
Using iPad as primary computer, however, there always seems to be 1 or 2 things a day that require me to go back to desk and fire up PC. This has solved that better than I’d hoped.
Will update review if necessary, but so far works very reliably and without limitations.
