Great work, please keep improving it

The X-forwarding works. I can forward a complex GUI like pycharm from my Linux machine to my ipad. Great work! However, the user interface is totally unusable. I recommend the developer matching the user experience to the TeamViewer, especially the mouse function.

good x server for ipad

I use this to connect from ipad to macos. After setting up a client to start xterm, I can connect and run any X11 client program on the mac and can see and use it from the ipad. Very slick, easy to set up, no problems so far at all, plan to buy the real version next.

Works as designed if you take the time to configure correctly. Using it to SSH into a Raspberry Pi to see Temperature data remotely. The free version is 5 minutes at a Time. Some may find this adequate. The paid version is unlimited server time.
