VNC® Viewer from RealVNC® gives you instant remote access to your Mac, Windows and Linux computers from anywhere in the world. You can view your computer's desktop, and control its mouse and keyboard as though you were sitting down in front of it.

Just visit and download VNC Connect to each computer you want to control. Then sign in to VNC Viewer on your device using your RealVNC account credentials. You'll see your computers automatically appear; simply tap to connect.

VNC Connect password-protects each computer out-of-the-box. You may need to enter the same user name and password you use to log in to your computer. All sessions are then encrypted end-to-end.

During a session, your device's touch screen serves as a trackpad to give you precise control. Drag your finger to move the remote mouse cursor and tap anywhere to left-click (other gestures such as right-click and scroll are explained in-app).

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.

Works well (when it works)

As the title says, it works greater than when it's actually working. However, it has the annoying habit of timing out a connection but no way to set the time out value. So if you have to switch to another app, if you don't return to VNC Viewer almost immediately, you get logged out, not only from the app, but the entire remote user account as well, forcing you to first find the machine again, reconnect to that machine, then log into the user account. All the while the display on the actual remote machine has switched to the login page.
This makes some uses... problematic.
In addition, the UI begins to bog down after about thrity minutes. The cursor, initially synced exactly between the two devices, begins to lag, often by seconds, making use very difficult.
