  • Great overall, but has limitations

    By 4$VV
    This is one of the best few remote desktop apps for iOS that I’ve used. It seems to have the best support and the fewest bugs. I took off a star, because it doesn’t work well with basic X11 applications such as XTerm, which require a secondary click-and-drag. The two-finger gestures on this app allow only for a secondary click.
  • Support did not find a solution

    By P----ed Off
    The developer worked with me to find a solution however when one was not found they did refund the purchase price. Down loaded a more expensive app with Phone support, I had no router issues. This tells me it is in the software of this app that prohibited the hand shake. I guess I’ll never know. Purchased app three days ago. Unable to connect to my MAC using my iPhone. Only way it works is when I’m connected to my home WiFi. That is not what I want to do. Support says I should check my firewall. It is set up correctly. Support says it should be plugged to a power source. It is. Support says to verify settings, verified and correct. Still, not working. Can anyone please offer some help so I can get on with my life?
  • Perfect.

    Does what it says it does, does it better than even Apple’s own built-in protocols. Indispensable.
  • Essential App

    By kc! Bradshaw
    If you need to login or control a computer from your phone, you’ve found your app. Great design, responsive developer, quality software. Look no further.
  • Worth every penny; I would have paid more.

    By CBT47
    Amazing suite of products; I bought everything “Screens” related and just was very happy with their support. I highly recommend to anyone who does freelance work or just needs to help their mom; or whatever.
  • Not work with AT&T routers

    By Kerozzz
    The setup need to have pacific kind of routers if you don’t and you try to contacting the support by email you screwed. I didn’t even got my money back
  • Not worth the money

    By Guy245689
    Costly app that keeps 2 features as separate purchases and also pushes reminders to purchase them while using the app. Other than that it's a remote desktop app with a connection helper service.
  • Best iOS VNC Client by far.

    By grantmaier687
    Update 2/15/18 - Not sure what it was, but today’s update fixed that finder window lag I had been experiencing for months now. Kudos, and great work Edovia! Been using this app for years. Touch input is fantastic, and the gestures to show/hide dock, menu bar are really great and a small detail I appreciate. I’ve had some issues with lag/windows hanging on screen (finder windows especially) since version 4.4.4, and iOS 11 has affected some of those swipe to show hide menu bar/dock gestures, but this has happened in the past with prior versions of the app and I know the developer will work it out in future updates. Bravo for a great app.
  • Customer Service

    By FlyingMPC
    I was having an issue with logging in. A quick response back from Screens Customer Service pointed me to a static IP issue I was having. I’m back in business! A great app for productivity while I’m away from home!
  • Really works, easily

    By Tortugonal
    Allows curtain mode and many add-ons that make it shine. Works perfectly with free Mac software, and free service keeps track of IP address, so you can punch through your router without needing to set up a VPN like Hamachi. Fast, easy to understand, and supports tablet and cursor mode, function keys, one-button access to Spotlight, automatic login with excellent security, and zoom. Well supported, really rapid tech direct answers to queries, and fully compatible with iPhone X.
