Remote Desktop for your iPhone!

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 5:51PM EST

Every now and then a 3rd party developer will come up with something that is so ingenious it makes you wonder why it wasn’t included out of the box. This iPhone Remote Desktop Client is one such invention. Developer Nate True has come up with a way to modify TightVNC’s open source VNC app to run on the iPhone. You would expect such a Frankenstein-esque creation to have some serious hiccups. Think again, Batman. This thing runs like butter. WebVNC as it’s called gives you unprecedented mobile access to your Windows desktop from the convenience of your iPhone. Once configured, you are free to use your desktop PC to your heart’s content, zooming, right/left clicking, entering text, and much more. It is, for all intents and purposes, a full featured mobile VNC client. The app works over EDGE and Wi-Fi, simply connecting to a local, or external IP address through iPhone’s Safari browser. The best part? It’s completely free. If this sounds like something you’d like to take for a spin, hit the link for the full details, and be sure to give Nate some much deserved support for his good work. Let us know what you think!
