Read the reviews of Teleport (Full/Pro, whatever we should call it now), and they will be the same for the Lite version. All he's done is removed keyboard access and reduced the price to make a nice trial version. I'm sure anyone who tries the Lite version will be sold on the full price version.

I have a review on iTunes for the full version, plus posts in every Teleport/VNC thread here if you need to be further convinced of it's greatness :D

Done. I'm convinced.

In the near term all I want is mouse access. So this will be a good "gateway drug" :D


CommanderData:: i have two 24inch screens which equals 3840pixels but their site says:

Teleport Lite supports high resolution displays (e.g. 3200x1200)

Anyone have dual 24" and does teleport drive them completely?

mochaVNC did not. To say the least.

Just bought it. Tried it. Loved it except for one fact: with the lite version, one can do absolutely nothing but navigate one's screen. I have to admit, the refresh frame rate is awesome for such a small device as iPhone. Mocha VNC is rubbish compared to Teleport. Conclusion: Teleport is worth $25. I am buying it.

I may have to give it a try. Honestly, I've been less frustrated with Mocha VNC Lite than most people have and have not had any real inclination to pay the $25 for the much more talked-up Teleport, but a $1 trial version is more my speed to see what I think of it. And honestly, I rarely need the keyboard for what I use the VNC for anyway.

I have only done a single 24" screen at a time. I don't think he's suggesting the limit is 3200x1200 though, my guess is he was testing with dual 1600x1200 monitors to prove you could hit high resolutions. I've done 1920x1200 so far without issue, which as you know Mocha cannot handle.

Hope that helps.

And mouse clicks right?


Edit: Thanks CommanderData!

what's the difference between this and mocha vnc? and can you control your computer from outside of your own wifi network or over 3G?

Yeah I am waiting to get this when they come out with the free program that helps you do VNC outside of your own network so you don't have to do it manually all the time ^_^ . . . I am lazy . . . but then again if I did get it now I can watch TV and play on my computer at the same time when there's something good on . . .

You think you're lazy? The main reason why I am buying this is so I can sleep my computer when I forget to from the other room, 20 feet away.

NOW THAT'S LAZY!:D

Edit: that and to check in on my legendary multi hour iphone backups.

Is it done yet?

So does the Lite Version enable you to navigate with your mouse and have mouse click capabilities?

Nope, not even that.

Argg. I bought it. Yep no mouse clicks. Does display both my monitors though.

I suggest not buying it and use mocha if it is a hobby thing or buying the full teleport if you have a serious need for this.

Wow..Thanks for the super fast reply. Sucks then if it does not even support mouse clicks. what are you going to do with the lite version then? It's pretty useless. It should be a free app then for people to see if they wanna buy the full version. Thanks though for the update.

I used Mocha VNC (full version) for a while, and while it worked fine I decided to follow everyone's advice and try Teleport (full version). Teleport is very well made and frankly it blows Mocha VNC out of the water. Also the refresh rate is much higher than Mocha VNC, even over cellular network.

My only complaint with Teleport is that it is so processor intensive that it sometimes requires you to force quit Mail and Safari before it will even run. I hope the developers can find a way around this issue.

I'll keep it, since for a buck its worth it just to see both my monitors for other things , which mocha does not.

As for sleeping, I think i will write an applescript to sleep my app and put the icon somewhere mocha can see it (my left screen).

I might still buy teleport, but I so seldom use it, I would rather buy $25 worth of other apps.

I thought the $24.99 version was way too high for an App that wouldn't be used but very infrequently by most.
I have been using VNC Lite, for FREE
Well, I purchased the $.99 Teleport Lite, and the only words that I can think of is RIP-OFF compared to Mocha VNC Lite.
The ONLY thing the mouse does is allow you to move the screen around on your iPhone. You can't use any mouse clicks, switch Application windows on your computer, or open new ones. You DO need to be able to maneuver the screen with the mouse because you can Zoom to enlarge your screen, but you can't get the screen zoom in to get it to fit the iPhone screen. So, you need the mouse to be able to move around the screen to look at it.
Absolutely USELESS. But I was the DUMB one because I gave them $.99 for something that does nothing. At least with the FREE Mocha VNC Lite, you can actually do a lot.

But, I guess is someone can sell a useless App for $999, then this company can sell one for $.99

I'm not going to spend the $24.99 after they ripped me off of $.99.

Anyway, I was told by the coder, that after Apple gets the updated version of Mocha VNC in the Store, he is going to start adding features. And, he said he's keeping the low price.

Too bad Teleport coders aren't observing.

I'll probably purchase the Full teleport app. I need something to navigate on my computer cause i have a G4 Cube hooked up to my LCD HDTV as my media center. I use it to watch movies and do some lite surfing when I'm on the couch.

I used to use Tocuhpad Pro which served my purpose very well. Can't seem to find it after the 2.0 update and guess that teleport is the only application i can use right now. If anyone knows where i can get Touchpad Pro, please let me know as i loved that application. I've installed installer and cydia but can't seem to find it right now.
