Have you ever wished you could access any computer you need from the comfort of your iPad on the couch, or from your iPhone in a park, all with the same simplicity of using a native iOS app?  iPads and iPhones are powerful on their own, but you still can’t do everything from them.  Whether you’re needing to change network settings on your work computer or start a movie download on your home computer, your iOS device just can’t do it on its own.

Since the early 2000’s, VNC (Virtual Network Computing) technology has been widely available for most mainstream operating systems to let you remotely login to your computer and use your programs and data without being in front of it.  The latest wave of powerful smartphones and mobile devices have sparked an increasing interest in using your computer remotely, and the App Store currently contains many VNC apps for iPhone and iPad.

There’s only one problem.  Most VNC apps make you drag the remote mouse cursor around, treating your iPad as a giant laptop touchpad.  That’s where Screens comes in.  This new VNC app from Endovia aims to bring the best of the iOS touch interface and VNC together to make your desktop feel like a native iOS app.  Best of all, it’s a universal app so you can use the same app on your iPad and iPhone.  Let’s take a look and see if this is the app that can make remote computing easier for you.
