Read the Developer's Notes:
Control a computer from your iPhone or iPod touch! VNC® Viewer connects your iPhone or iPod touch to a computer anywhere in the world, displays its desktop, and lets you take control.

VNC Viewer is from RealVNC, the inventors of VNC. It can connect to any Mac OS X computer, and to any Windows, Linux, or UNIX computer running a VNC-compatible Server. RealVNC recommends VNC Enterprise Edition for robust, secure, and high-performance connections, and for its unrivalled flexibility. For more information, see
