    Hi,

    I am looking for the best VNC/Remote Desktop App for viewing my Mac Desktop on the iPad Air, after reading a few reviews only it looks like Screens is a good choice to go for?

    From what I can gather it will work remotely with the companion app installed on the Mac but if you are on the same network it will connect directly meaning faster speeds, this sounds good.

    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/screens-control-your-computer/id655890150

    Does anyone have any experience with this app and think it is good? Or anyone know of any reasons not to get this app and use an alternative?

    Thanks in Advance!

    I just discovered Microsoft's Remote Desktop app for the Mac, iPad and Android and it's the best solution I found so far.... Works great and it's free.

    For accessing my mac locally I use "Remoter VNC - Remote Desktop".

    For accessing across the net I use LogMeIn.

    I am In love with splashtop, it's fast and it feels like I'm using the remote computer directly! It now plays games without any lag via remote!

    It's the best thing I've ever used till this day! Check it out!

    Have you actually tried splashtop? Like I said, I could stream gameplay from the remote pc to the actual computer... I have never seen something like this via a vnc app.

    I have been using VNC Viewer for a long time and think it's great.

    There are a lot of options, which is great. I use Splashtop, as it works and it's kind of a brand loyalty thing, which essentially means too lazy to change. They are probably ripping me off, but it works as good as anything else, so you know there's not something out there better; only cheaper.
