I am getting tired of some weird problems with Log Me In… I really hope I win this...

NovaTornado says:

Awesome! Wanted to try it out for when i need to grab a file that i might forget. Price threw me off though :/

ZackTanner says:

I could really see myself using this a lot between my three devices. I've been using iTeleport for awhile and it's pretty choppy and the UI isn't great.

stokant says:

So useful, i want it please !

chrisw329 says:

well im sure i could find a good free one but this would be nice when i setup the old laptop for a print server and storage

corronchos says:

Screens vs. LogMeIn! Go!
I've always used LogMeIn in the past but Rene's Screens review has me very curious to compare it to LogMeIn.

steven says:

this app looks sweet! I would love to win it, thanks for the opportunity!

skrimaging says:

Looks nice! Would be awesome on my MacBook pro and iPhone

bdegrande says:

I would love to win this, it looks like the best app of its type.

Steven Freitas says:

Well done, Apple style solution! Would love to win.

Ryan says:

It would be great to be able to have some quality VNC apps on my devices. I've been looking at Screens for a long time, but haven't been able to justify the cost – free is much more justifiable!

Jack Forbush says:

Count me in....would put it to excellent use!

Mike Shaffer says:

Sure, I'd like one! (or two)...

Kryptonianson says:

Would LOVE to have this. So would many others as I can see :) whoever wins, enjoy it!

David says:

I've been holding off on buying Screens VNC for a long time now. Not because I don't trust it's good (though I do have my scepticisms), but because it's so expensive. I'd feel like the luckiest guy on the block if I won.

elavum says:

Oh .. that looks awsome and I am ready to try it out as soon as i am picked up for it

asggold says:

I have been looking to purchase this but just have not got around to it yet. Would love to win to save a few $$. Thanks!

I use another similar app, but this one looks much better. I would definitely use this.

Chris says:

I've been looking for a really great solution like this! Would be even better to get it free!

Matt Thoma says:

Looks like a great app. At that price point though they should offer some kind of freemium approach for people to test. I dont mind wasting 99 cents on a game that disappoints, but 20 bucks/30 for MAC is essentially as expensive as OSX itself...

Matt says:

This looks extremely useful.

zvandiver@gmail.com says:

Looks like one of the best VNC solutions available

Greg says:

I haven't won a contest yet.

Ben says:

I've been using VNC Viewer and would like a more powerful VNC client.

Pixada says:

Iam using Teamviewer on all my devices iPhone, iPad, 2 Macs, 3 PCs at the moment.
Screens looks quite amazing in the first, just like an iUI has to be done for remote working.
Hell yes I would love to get Screens to raise my workflow
Thanks Rene

disneyland_fan says:

I would love to win the version for the MacBook. Here's to fingers crossed.

5stryng says:

I'm getting an iPad3 and want Screens badly!!!

I bought screens when it first came out for the iPad and it's pretty awesome. There are other options out there, but using Screens Connect is still the simpler way IMO

tjaxter says:

My vision's so weird, I need to see two
a Screens for one eye, and another to do.
I'll swivel an iris just to be sure

russ131 says:

Being able to access my MacBook Pro from my iPad or iPhone 4s would be amazing. Being in grad school I carry a TON of books and don't always have room for the MBP, but accessing it from campus to complete all of my assignments or when I need to access a file would be a blessing!!

Flamur says:

A MacBook Air would complete my Apple set of having an iPhone, iPad and Mac. iCloud FTW! lol.
