Some one I know recommended this program to me while I was working on a project with a RPi (Raspberry Pi) and it was life changing (I was originally using this on my laptop). When I found out that they had an iOS app devoted to VNC Viewer, I couldn’t help but download it immediately and setup every computer I had access to with VNC Server (and sometimes VNC Viewer). I’ve created a RPi google calendar display since then, and the number of times this has saved me from having to find micro USB adapters and a keyboard just to get rid of some annoying pop up boxes or a random glitch is astronomical. I love the app, I feel as if they have done a really good job integrating the features from the PC version to the mobile device version. The only thing I wish they could change about the app (unless they already have this) is the option for audio to play on the connected device. This would be really useful from a productivity perspective (and also great from a prankster’s perspective. Never gonna give you up...)
Skeptical at first, but it’s AWESOME!
I wasn’t expecting too much from this app because it’s free and because I figured that it was probably more a gimmick than a productivity tool. Boy was I wrong. I try to install this directly onto a vpn, that didn’t work, so I installed in on my home computer and now I have access to both my computer and my full VPN from the home computer desktop, from my phone. I just made my phone 100 times more powerful. I can actually do anything now on the go, if I really have to. It’s unbelievable! And the controls work well; never had an issue with the keyboard, the gestures like tap and hold to move objects work well, and the mouse tool works well. Not sure about some of the negative reviews, but this app has changed my life, my view of my phone, and the things I can get done. I have now recommended this app to several people, some just couldn’t believe a phone could do that. And it’s free!! I am using an iPhone X by the way. No issues. Thank you devs for this app.
Best vnc viewer, and issues with iPad Pro 10.5" resolved!
Update again on February 19:
With combination of latest VNC update (3.4.0) and iOS 11.2.5, the app crashing issue seems to be resolved.
Thanks again to the great support and software from RealVNC!
Updated February 19:
The update just pushed out today (3.4.0) definitely made an attempt at dealing with app crashes on iPad Pro 10.5" using smart keyboard.
Most of the time, the single quote and double quote work just fine.
However, the pesky app crash still occurs, but much less often.
I tried playing with all of the keyboard settings, both for physical and logical keyboard, on iOS settings pages without complete success.
I will update my support request with this latest feedback...
I saw the developer response to the sudden crash when using the quote or double quote key on the iPad Pro hardware keyboard (not bluetooth).
I tried the workaround by turning off auto punctuation, but the app. still is crashing.
At least I know what key causes it now, but this is extremely frustrating.
I have been using Real VNC products pretty much from the very beginning, and have always been impressed with the quality of the products.
Please push out a fix for this ASAP and I will add a star back to this review.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
