Excellent touch-based VNC client delivers
Screens offers some unique features that make connecting to and controlling remote computers from an iOS device nearly painless.

Best of the Best: Screens
Holy crap, Screens is an incredible VNC client. I never thought I'd actually be excited about VNC but boy does it do a nice job.

It’s just terrific
Access your Mac from anywhere using any iOS device. It’s that simple. Great, great software.

The best VNC app I’ve ever used
Screens makes it easy to connect remotely to computers

It just works
Screens from Edovia is a new, gorgeously designed, super simple VNC client that brings your Windows, Mac, or Linux desktop to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. I had the good fortune to test drive it through the beta cycle and it really is the closest thing to a Back to my Mac-style, “it just works” experience on iOS.

A very “Mac-Like” VNC client for iPad
If you haven’t got a VNC client on your iPad yet, I’d highly recommend you check out Screens. It’s the best there is.

Makes Remote Desktop on iPhone and iPad Easy
If you’ve been waiting for a remote desktop app that feels perfectly at home on the iPad and iPhone, this is it.

An easy and elegant VNC app for iOS
There are more expensive and less expensive solutions, but I think screens has the best UI and control scheme I've seen.


* Screens Connect, our optional helper app, requires OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard or later, a 64-bit compatible Mac (Intel Core 2 Duo, i5, i7, etc.) and a router with UPnP or NAT-PMP enabled. Free download at http://screensapp.com. Read help documentation for instructions.

* Screens will not transfer audio from your computer. This is a limitation of the VNC protocol.
