Screens for Mac
Accessing your devices from anywhere in the world is surely great, especially if you need to perform some last minute modifications to a project or copy a certain file. This can be done from any computer that can access your device's network using the VNC desktop sharing system.
Screens is an OS X application that makes it a lot easier to access your VNC-enabled devices from anywhere in the world, if your Mac has an Internet connection. On top of that, the app also comes with iCloud synchronization, making simple and quick to sync all stored screens on all your iOS devices.
What's more, the Screens utility enables you to connect to any device using a SSH tunnel, in order to encrypt and secure the traffic to and from that machine and, thus, literally eliminating the risk of a man-in-the-middle attack.
Moreover, Screens provides extensive multi-touch support and it also allows you to connect to multiple computers or portable devices running VNC servers at a time, including Windows and Linux powered machines.
The multiple Screens sessions can be effortlessly managed via the Screens Library which, consequently, will also make it very simple to re-connect to any of your stored devices with a simple double click.
What is more, the Screens app helps you to modify the authentication type for each of the stored machines at any given time, and it also provides you with the means to connect to the selected device with just a couple of mouse clicks.
On the whole, Screens is a very useful OS X application for anyone on the lookout for a stable and reliable VNC-based remote control utility for the Macintosh platform. The fact that you can connect to machines with any operating system capable of running a VNC server is an added bonus.
