Ratings and Reviews
Unusable and hard to follow
Feels half hearted. Doesn’t work well and has terrible instructions. Eg how do you leave a session i had to kill the app to get out of a VNC session.
The time limit was raised to 5 minutes. Thank you! Honestly this is the most useful app that I have. I manage my Plex server and run ThinVNC on it. This app works perfectly. The controls and mouse clicks work well and I've been very happy with it. On average it takes about 5-10 seconds to connect and then I'm off doing whatever I need to do. I can right-click on taskbar icons and everything. I'd buy the full version if it was just a little bit cheaper.
2.0 is a big step backwards.
UPDATE: version 2.0 takes away the ability to toggle mouse control on and off. It is far less responsive, and cannot zoom out for a full screen view. DO NOT UPDATE. Cutting back rating from 3 stars to 1.
At the time of this writing, this was the only free VNC viewer available for the iPhone. As other reviewers have pointed out, it is somewhat crippled. You can't send certain keys, like Ctrl-Alt-Del, and you cannot use the right mouse button. Once you get past all that, this app does what is left nicely. (EDIT: NOT SO WITH V. 2.0, see update above) With my iPhone connected via wifi to my home network, the speed with which I could access my home PC's surprised me. Looks pretty good, too. You can use the standard iPhone gestures to move around the screen, and zoom in or out. This could cause the remote cursor to move around a lot, so they provide a button you can press to suspend control of the remote system's mouse. (EDIT: NO LONGER SO, SEE ABOVE) Tap it again when you are ready to take back control of the mouse. Functionality is plain vanilla. There is no chat support, no ftp support (though I dont know what you would have on your iPhone that you would want to uplaod), and no support for encryption plugins like the ones supported by the UltraVNC server. Still, it is pretty decent.... (EDIT: NO LONGR SO)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
