    Jaadu VNC developed by Jahanzeb Sherwani just got 20% knocked off it.

    This brings it down from £14.99 to £11.99!

    When it dropped to $5.00 on September 17th 2008 in the US , as you can probably imagine,
    users snapped it up pretty quickly.

    I bought it at full price, £14.99 and have never looked back.

    I got this app when it was on sale as something I'd only use occasionally. I now use this at some point every day. I still have yet to use this outside my local network except when helping my parents on their mac in another state but I setup a box in my network as a media center I only control with this.

    Remote access to your mac (or windows) is one of those things that I find most valuable to my iPhone. Jaadu VNC on the iPhone has, in my opinion, a flawless interface that manages to run really really fast.

    For what it does it does it really well. I have never used their client on my mac, so I am judging it based on using Mac's screen sharing (my router has UPnP disabled, and I am using custom ports).

    Now I have bought this at the discount price, would I buy this again at $25? Probably. There really aren't better alternatives out there. This is one app that I have come to rely on when I needed it.

    Jaadu really is a great piece of software. I got it at a discount. I'd personally have a difficult time buying it for 25 bucks, but that's just because I don't have a job at the moment :). Is it worth 25 bucks - if any application is, Jaadu is I'd say.

    I'd buy it in a heart beat for $5.....I don't really need it so $19.99 is too high for me.
