Screens 4 for iOS

Based upon the sheer number of apps I download on a daily basis, I’m often switching out my favorite apps for others I like more. There’s a few exceptions to this rule and one of those apps is Screens. The reason is simple – there is no better VNC app for iOS.

Today Edovia – the developer behind Screens – released version 4 which adds a bunch of great features to an already fantastic app.

For those who are unfamiliar with the term VNC, Screens allows you to remotely access your Mac or PC from your iPad or iPhone. While connected, you have full control over your computer. It basically converts an iPad into a pseudo-MacBook.

Unlike most VNC apps, Screens is incredibly easy to setup. Simply download it from the iOS App Store, install the free Screens Connect app on your Mac, and then set up an account to pair the two devices together.

Today’s update to Screens took the best VNC app and made it even better by adding features like:

  • improved external keyboard support
  • 1Password integration for logging into websites remotely
  • Curtain Mode – which allows you to hide the screen of your Mac when it’s being remotely accessed via Screens
  • 3D Touch support
  • redesigned UI
  • .. and much more

Screens 4 for iOS is a free update for anyone who bought the previous version and new users can buy the universal iOS app for $19.99 from the App Store.

If you want to be able to control a Mac or Windows computer from your iPad or iPhone, Screens is the app to get.
