androidVNC is the Open Source (GPL) remote desktop program for Android devices. Connects to most VNC servers: incl TightVNC, RealVNC on Win and Linux, x11vnc, and Apple Remote Desktop on OS/X.
0.5.0 — Will preserve sent text from session to session (optionally; there is a new button to send text without remembering it); Import/Export settings to a file on SD card (Can import from URL; useful when deploying to many devices with same configuration); add button in zoom control to bring up keyboard; Hungarian translation; no longer prefers to install to SD card because that was causing problems
androidVNC user reviews:
Using it to connect both TightVNC and x11vnc servers via WIFI and the Internet, without any issues at all, I’m happy with that. Sure, there are lags in the refresh rate, but that depends largely on network traffic at the given time, that is normal and expected. A great app, I give 5+ for 🙂
It works very well, even tunneling through SSH with ConnectBot. But FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY please add a way to send a double click!
great app, use it for LAN and remote connections from my Desire HD, does everything i want and history store and password store (if ticked) is great too. Only thing is send a double click would be good.
Great for the times when I’m at work and the Mrs needs IT support. Input methods could do with tweaking though. *HTC Sensation*
Pretty flawless. My only complaint would be the Send Text implementation. Wish I could just pop up the keyboard and type, including bksp. Maybe its a setting I haven’t discovered yet?
‘m amazed at how well this app works on both my phone and on tablets. When remotely operating my home desktop, it’s smoother and quicker than the desktop VNC client I usually use! My only complaint is that sometimes the input mode seems to not stay set the same (I usually choose “pan & scroll”) from use to use.
a few issues getting mouse clicks to register from time to time, and i seem to run into a speed issues when i am not running on wifi. but it is a great tool , and its free and it is wonderful.
Works brilliantly – superb free app. I use TightVNC all the time on my desktops and laptop, and this works seemlessly with it. HTC Desire – great.
Just doesn’t work w/ any machine I’ve tried to connect with. I wish performance vs bit depth were its only issue…, but it also hangs on either of the two recent Linux distros I’ve tried…, and doesn’t work at all w/ a 10.6.8 Mac. Have tried numerous setting combos…, and like I said at the start, it no worky. Installed on a Xoom.
Loved this app since I got my Evo. Still is excellent and trumps others with its features. All I would change in this app, is give option to always start in numerical keyboard
Thanks for a good bit of software but there doesn’t appear to be a send keys function for the mac ‘cammand’ key or windows equivalent… which on a Mac does make it very difficult sometimes.
This is a serviceable VNC viewer but functionality is limited and usage is extremely cumbersome. Needs a better implementation of keyboard integration so as users can see what they are typing. Also needs a faster way to summon the keyboard. Lastly, should have integration with different types of keyboard like Hacker’s keyboard for tab and arrow keys and other special keys.
