  • Not worth the money

    By Guy245689
    Costly app that keeps 2 features as separate purchases and also pushes reminders to purchase them while using the app. Other than that it's a remote desktop app with a connection helper service.
  • Best iOS VNC Client by far.

    Update 2/15/18 - Not sure what it was, but today’s update fixed that finder window lag I had been experiencing for months now. Kudos, and great work Edovia! Been using this app for years. Touch input is fantastic, and the gestures to show/hide dock, menu bar are really great and a small detail I appreciate. I’ve had some issues with lag/windows hanging on screen (finder windows especially) since version 4.4.4, and iOS 11 has affected some of those swipe to show hide menu bar/dock gestures, but this has happened in the past with prior versions of the app and I know the developer will work it out in future updates. Bravo for a great app.
  • Customer Service

    By FlyingMPC
    I was having an issue with logging in. A quick response back from Screens Customer Service pointed me to a static IP issue I was having. I’m back in business! A great app for productivity while I’m away from home!
  • Really works, easily

    By Tortugonal
    Allows curtain mode and many add-ons that make it shine. Works perfectly with free Mac software, and free service keeps track of IP address, so you can punch through your router without needing to set up a VPN like Hamachi. Fast, easy to understand, and supports tablet and cursor mode, function keys, one-button access to Spotlight, automatic login with excellent security, and zoom. Well supported, really rapid tech direct answers to queries, and fully compatible with iPhone X.
  • Incredible App!!

  • Great app, great support

    The app itself is great and works as advertised. I connect my iPad to my Mac desktop when I need a little extra horsepower. I found a glitch involving modifier keys. I reported it to Edivia’s support, and they fixed it a couple days later in their next release. Thanks!
  • Great except ads

    By Connor McElvain
    Great app but there is annoying messages to buy dark mode and other features which I don’t want to see considering I paid $20. No way to disable these messages from what I’ve seen
  • Indespensible

    I love this app. I use it to manage the media center (Mac mini) from our couch; or to access my office PC or my wife's machine (both MacBook Pro) when away from the office. I own both the iOS and MacOS version. Works great. Very responsive developer too.
  • Handy App by a Great Company

    By craigtheguru
    I have used screens for years to remotely connect to various desktop and laptop Macs. The features and performance are great and Edovia continues to enhance the app on all platforms. The iOS version of Screens in particular is rock solid and I love using my iPad to hop on to my Macs and using the same great app and experience on my iPhone in pinch if needed. I also wanted to give a shout out to Edovia. I ran in to an issue with multi-desktop support and they reached out unprompted and help me resolve it, ultimately by rebooting my High Sierra Mac. Thanks guys!
  • Good growth!

    I’ve been watching this app for about 5 years hesitating to get it and I ended up trying it out on my old jailbroken iPhone 5s for free thru appcake on cydia back when the 5s came out but this app sucked it seemed and others were better. But I just got it legitimately on my iPhone X and it has grown a whole lot! Excellent app and great sticking around and giving updates to get and keep this app at the top of the charts. 👍🏾👍🏾
