Jaadu Click allows you to access your computers screen, move its mouse pointer around, and click on items.  The software used to cost $.99, but has recently been increased to $4.99.

First, I just want to say that the system works as advertised, and that all being said and done, if it were the only option for controlling your computer screen, it would probably be worth the $4.99 price tag.  Problem is though, its not the only choice.  Mocha VNC Lite does exactly the same thing as Jaadu Click and more, and it’s completely Free. So what does Jaadu do that Mocha doesn’t?  Not much, unless you count a slightly easier install process as a feature.

Setup for Jaadu Click was a breeze. I downloaded the App to the iPhone, went to my iMac’s preferences, selected the Sharing item, clicked on Screen Sharing, Clicked on Computer Settings, Selected VNC Users can control screen with password, and assigned a password. Then, i started up Jaadu Click, and it automatically found the avaliable computers on my network. After selecting the one I set up for screen sharing, the desktop appeared on my iPhone and i could move the mouse around and click on whatever i wanted on that computer.

I would have to say that setup of Jaadu Click was a little easier than Mocha, since I didn’t have to worry about the IP address and possibility of getting that wrong.  Also for anyone who doesnt have a static IP on their machines, this could potentially have caused a problem.

But with Mocha VNC, the free version allows me to scroll the whole screen, zoom in with the familiar iPhone finger gestures, and pan out to see the whole desktop (same with Jaadu Click).  I can move windows, click buttons, open apps, the whole deal.  The difference is that with Mocha if I rotate the iPhone the screen resets to landscape mode and if i want to type something in?  Full landscape keyboard!  Having a keyboard is key!!!  Especially if you want to do more than just move things around and click buttons.  This is where the $4.99 version of Jaadu Click falls short.

Quick Take

Overall Value: Save your $4.99 and get the Free Mocha VNC

Entertainment Value: Great way to control your Computer

Graphics: iPhone Display works great for this

Level of Difficulty: Super Easy (More so than Mocha VNC)

Age Appropriate: Any Age

Longevity: For as long as i owned an iPhone

Would I Buy Again: No.  I would get the Mocha VNC Free app

Final Statement: Save your money and go for the more powerful Free version of Mocha VNC, if you want to access your computer with keyboard (alt-cntrl-del for Windows users), and the full feature set, then spend the $25 and get the full version of Jaadu VNC.
