• A VNC Server, such as UltraVNC or TightVNC, is required to connect to a Windows PC.
• 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.
• Screens Connect requires OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard or later. You will need to create a free Screens ID.

What’s New

Version 4.8.9

Great news! Dark Mode is now free for everyone!

Thank you to everyone that purchased the feature as you helped us fund maintenance and development of Screens. However, since the next major version of iOS offers a system-wide dark appearance, we decided to make this optional feature available to all users free of charge.

Note that the feature has been moved to the "More Settings" section of the app settings. It is no longer in the "Extra Features" section.

This version also takes care of some issues:

- Fixed some Dark Mode glitches and smearing on OLED displays
- Fixed an issue where Screens would overwrite the authentication method
- Stability and performance improvements

If you enjoy Screens, please take a few moments to write a nice review. Thank you!

L’application la plus fonctionnelle de gestion d’écran à distance

Cette application a presque toutes les fonctionnalités nécessaires.

Seul manque à mon goût : les modes couleurs dégradés 8 bits niveaux de gris et 2 bits noir et blanc.

A part cela elle répond à tous mes besoins de management à distance.

Elle a même la possibilité de faire un tunnel ssh vers la machine à gérer. Bravo !

1 seul Mac

Malheureusement l’appli ne permet pas de Controller plusieurs Macs derrière une box (freebox). Après de nombreux échanges avec la hotline ils en ont conclus que ce n’était pas possible. C’est moche.
Ça m’aurait permis de pouvoir éteindre les machines à distance après des calculs de rendus 3D sur différents ordis.
Sur iPhone Le contrôle de la souris du Mac a distance est très difficile, il faut cliquer un peu à côté et plusieurs fois pour parvenir à ouvrir, fermer des applis ou tout simplement éteindre !
Mais c’est la seule app dispo, alors bon, c’est déjà bien !

Developer Response ,

En fait, c'est tout à fait possible de contrôler plus d'un Mac à la fois. Dans votre cas, il suffit d'ouvrir un port pour chaque Mac, tel que l'on vous a indiqué lors de nos communications. Normalement, Screens Connect se charge de le faire pour vous mais certaines restrictions au niveau de votre routeur l'en empêche. Pour ce qui est du contrôle de la souris, vous pouvez essayer le mode trackpad au lieu du mode tactile. Le mode trackpad est parfois plus approprié selon votre usage!

Appli simple fiable et efficace que je possède depuis des années et qui est toujours autant utile !!
