Screens, the VNC app for Mac, iPhone and iPad, today hits version 3.1 on the Mac and 3.4 on iOS with Dropbox support, giving users more choice in how to syncornize their saved screens. Screens will still default to iCloud for syncronization, except for the Mac version purchased outside of the Mac App Store.
Every day dozens and dozens of new and updated apps and games hit the App Store for both iOS and Mac. It's impossible to keep up with them all, but it's not impossible to pick out the very best. Here they are! Today we've got some brand new levels for Candy Crush fans, some performance fixes for Mailbox users, and more!
Looking for the best iPhone apps or best iPad apps to help you run your small business? The right app can not only help you start up but keep costs down. From processing transactions to having customers sign documents to sharing files online, there are tons of great small business apps for iPhone and iPad to choose from. But which ones are the very best?
Screens, considered by many to be the best VNC app for iOS and Mac, has been updated to version 3.1 and it brings with it a bevy of great new, and updated, features. You've got as-full-as-iOS-allows Bluetooth keyboard support, you can search through your saved screens, AirPlay Mirroring performance has been improved, Hot Corner support has been added, so have Disconnect Actions, and there are improved pasteboard transfers. It's also 64-bit on iPhone 5s, iPad mini Retina, and iPad Air. For more on the update, check out Luc Vandal's blog post over at Edovia.
Screens by Edovia is my favorite VNC client for iOS and Mac, because the developers and designers care about what I care about - a great, focused user experience. And now they've brought that sensibility - and their kickass VNC apps - to iOS 7 with Screens 3.
Screen sharing and VNC apps allow you to log in and access other computers remotely straight from your iPad. Whether you've forgotten a file on your work computer, need to access data from your Mac at home while you're on vacation, or want to run your server room from pool-side, a VNC app is what you need to get the job done. LogMeIn Ignition, Screens, and iTeleport will all give you access to any Mac, PC, or server you've linked them up with from anywhere in the world. But, they all handle the process in very different ways. Is one more convenient and full featured than the others or will they cater to completely different user bases? Follow along and we'll help you figure out which one may be right for you.

"With iCloud integration, SSH keys, and a re-designed Screens Connect, Screens 2.0 handles remote computing better and faster than ever before."
Screens 2.0 from Edovia lets you use your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Mac to take control of anything from your home computer to a secure server room, from the couch while you watch the big game, to poolside, half a world away, while you sip an umbrella drink. Mobile VNC (Virtual Network Computing) and RDP (Remote Desktop) is the dream every geek has had since we first saw prop tablets on TV starships, since we first heard talk of ultra-thin clients. And Screens 2.0, thanks to its design and usability, opens that dream up to a wider, more mainstream audience than ever before.
Since I began using smartphones in 2004, they've become an indispensable part of my daily workflow. When I bought my first iPhone (a 3G in 2008), that workflow changed immensely, and for the better. The wide variety of apps available for the platform and the connected nature of the tools Apple provides make iOS a very compelling choice for managing many aspects of our business.
