RealVNC Launches VNC Viewer for iPhone and iPod Touch

Allows you to connect to and take full control of a computer anywhere in the world

iPad on Ulitzer

RealVNC has launched its new VNC Viewer, an application for the iPhone and iPod touch that allows you to connect to and take full control of a computer anywhere in the world. Available to download from the App Store, VNC Viewer makes it possible to run applications, access documents and change settings on any Mac OS X, Windows, Linux or UNIX computer, just as though you were sitting in front of it.

With VNC Viewer, iPhone and iPod touch users can view Flash-based websites and copy and paste text between applications on their mobile device and computer. The new application is also ideal for system administrators who can troubleshoot and manage remote desktops or servers, check logs or install/uninstall and test applications, wherever they are.

Users can apply standard touch, tap and drag gestures to control the computer; for example, pinching to zoom into a specific area or out to see the whole picture. As an alternative to gestures, VNC Viewer has mouse button mode - virtual left, middle, and right mouse buttons, and an imaginary scroll wheel are superimposed on the desktop, giving users precise control. Text can be entered using the iPhone or iPod touch on-screen keyboard and displayed using preview facilities. VNC Viewer also includes special buttons for non-character keys such as the cursor keys and Shift, Ctrl, Alt and Delete.

To connect from VNC Viewer, VNC-compatible technology must be installed and running on the computer to be controlled. The recommended VNC Enterprise Edition provides robust, high‐performance connections and unmatched flexibility along with strong security. Connections to VNC Enterprise Edition benefit from additional features such as secure communication encrypted by industry‐standard 128 bit AES technology, platform‐native authentication, international keyboard support and enhanced performance.

“VNC Viewer provides a fast, simple and cost effective way to deliver VNC remote control capabilities to the growing number of iPhone and iPod touch users,” said Dr Andy Harter, CEO at RealVNC. “As the only truly cross-platform solution, VNC Viewer supports a wide range of personal and professional applications from remote computer support for friends and family to accessing business applications and delivering 24x7 IT support services.”

VNC Viewer for the iPhone and iPod touch is available to download from the App Store http://itunes.com/apps/vncviewer.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
