iPhones and iPads are quite capable of handling your business tasks. But they do not run your desktop applications. If you are lucky, the companies you have bought software from have iOS versions of their apps available as well. Of course, you don’t have to rely on those when you can make remote connections to your desktop. VNC Viewer for iPhone is one of the apps you could use to access desktop applications on your smartphone.
VNC Viewer lets you control remote desktop computers from your iPhone or iPad. You can run applications, access your data, and do a whole lot more without having to be even in the same location as your computer. The app supports Bonjour, so you can locate and connect to compatible computers easily. VNC Viewer does support gestures and has a mouse button mode. It makes entering text on your computer easy too.
To use this app, you need your computer to run a VNC-compatible server technology. Once there, you can connect to your remote computer easily. 256 bit encryption is offered (if you are using VNC 5). Screen resolutions up to 5120 to 2400 pixels are supported too.
VNC Viewer may not be cheap but it is one powerful app for making remote connections. It saves you from having to sit behind your desktop computer all the time to access your data. A great tool for business users.
