Screens App Details

Control your computer from anywhere. Screens lets you connect back to your Mac, Windows or Linux PC and control it from the comfort of your living room, the corner coffee shop or anywhere in the world. Work on that spreadsheet you left at home, perform software updates on your server ten thousand miles away, help your dad configure his computer in your hometown. Screens is fast, secure and reliable. KEY FEATURES • Curtain Mode Curtain Mode obscures the display on remote Macs you connect to. Useful if you don't want anyone to see what you're doing. • Connect Safely Screens can connect back to your computer through a secured connection. Enable Remote Login on your Mac and you’re done! Screens also support SSH keys. • Connect from Everywhere Install Screens Connect on your Mac or Windows PC and make it easily reachable from anywhere in the world. • Powerful Gestures Control your computer with all the trackpad gestures you’re used to and more! • Shortcuts Toolbar Screens’ scrollable shortcuts toolbar ensures that you'll always have your favorite shortcuts at hand when you need them. • Display Selection For Macs with several attached displays, Screens lets you select an individual one or you can show them all at once. Plus, it can remember your last selection for future sessions. • Clipboard Sharing Exchange rich text, URLs, images and more via your local or the remote clipboard. Screens can also keep them in sync. • Session Selection If there is someone logged in on a remote Mac, Screens can ask to share their screen or it can start a new session — your choice! • Mobile Trackpad Turn your extra iOS device into an external trackpad to control your computer’s cursor in Screens! This is a great addition to your iPad Pro and Smart Keyboard. • Help Out Your Friends or Relatives Have them download our free Screens Express utility and gain access their Mac to help them troubleshoot issues, update apps, etc. OTHER FEATURES • iCloud and Dropbox synchronization • Full hardware keyboard support • iPad Multitasking Support • Full 3D Touch Support • URL Schemes Support • Secure your content with Touch ID • 1Password integration • AirPlay Mirroring • Send commands to your computer before disconnecting • And so much more! IN THE PRESS “Screens is, simply put, the best screen sharing app for iOS” — Dan Moren, Macworld “Screens for iOS is the best remote access solution for accessing our Macs when away from home.” — Bradley Chambers, The Sweet Setup “Solid update to Edovia’s excellent utility for remotely logging into a Mac or PC from an iPhone or iPad.” — John Gruber, Daring Fireball “Screens is now the best VNC client for iOS.” — Rene Ritchie, iMore “Screens easily justifies the investment for serious users by increasing productivity.” — Steve Paris, Mac|Life SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS • A VNC Server, such as UltraVNC or TightVNC, is required to connect to a Windows PC. • Windows and Linux PCs can only send or receive text and URLs. • Screens will not receive any sound from your computer. This is a limitation of the RFB protocol the app is using. • Screens Connect requires OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard or later. You will need to create a free Screens ID. See Screens’ User Guide for details.

App Reviews

  • Desktop App Doesn’t work

    By notchristopher
    The app works fines, minus all bugging for upgrades. The desktop app (on Windows anyway) is really buggy. I can connect fine, even using a separate DNS service (duckdns). But Screens Connect never worked just stuck on trying to map port.
  • Does NOT work with Mojave

    By D15N0neya
    I have never written a review and I am certainly not the type of person who writes poor reviews for the sake of it. However, after this experience I believe the right thing to do is to share what happened so others will be forewarned. The issue is if you upgrade to Mojave, this app will no longer work with or without Curtain Mode enabled. I can prove this as I have two other Macs which are still on High Sierra and the app works as expected. I notified the developers’ support team (one in the same?) and they were less than helpful. They never read through my explanation fully, they provided me “solutions” that had nothing to do with my issue (proving they were not reading my emails), they yelled back at me (in all caps), and then they just flat out gave up, encouraging me to ask Apple for a refund. Which cannot be fulfilled since I purchased this app over a year ago (part of me thinks the developer knew this and was just continuing to be unhelpful). *** This issue is with the Edovia software and Mojave (period). ***
  • Took 5mins to connect

    By Toomanybarts
    Not sure if it’s the app or my WiFi connection...
  • Lagging and no full screen feature for iPad Pro.

    By fjc618
    Overall it’s a great app, I can do what remote pc can do. I don’t expect any more then that. However it doesn’t matter how much I change the ms settings plus I’m using a local network on a dual band wireless ac linksys router and there is a major lag when opening and closing windows and the curser is not in sync with my iPad Pro. All my network traffic is simple just between my iPad and pc, nothing more. Plus there is no full screen feature, for a 12.9” iPad screen I should not have to zoom in and cut half my remote screen off to see.
  • Works poorly when iPad or Mac keyboard is Dvorak

    By chmod007
    I had trouble getting typing to work reliably when either the Mac or the iPad had the keyboard layout set to Dvorak. Regardless of what combination of keyboard settings I tried, there would be some keys that didn’t behave as I needed them to. The rest of the app seems excellent; the developer has gone above and beyond on polish. I hope support for other keyboard layouts will improve.
  • Good VNC app. The review is out of principle

    By therealJesse
    You want to charge for a dark mode? A dark mode? I actually use this app, and it’s decent, but how dare you insult your customers with this nonsense.
  • Needs keyboard gesture & audio support

    By The Dude Lebowski dude
    No keyboard gesture for easy pop up of keyboard It’s a vnc client like any other. No audio supporter.
  • Hold to Send Password is Great

    By @davidjoelhall
    Didn't know this feature existed until looking into release notes as to why the action button looked different. This new feature is awesome, great job!
  • In-App Purchases in a $20 app...

    By Mattc867
    Constantly asking me to purchase dark mode for an extra $1. I don’t mind in-app purchases in free apps, but I when I pay $20 for an app I expect it to include all features like this. Anticipating requesting a refund.
  • Works good

    By Stevesien
    No complaints, connects and works as expected. Accurately sends keyboard commands, unlike some others I’ve tried.
