This past week, RealVNC released the VNC Viewer. This application for the iPhone 3Gs unlocked will give users the ability to access and even control their PC or laptop computers. You can do this from just about anywhere. It is downloaded at the Apple App store and it will run applications, access documents with any Mac, Windows, Linux or UNIX computer.
The Apple iPhone have just become mobile troubleshooters. Just imagine that you can test, install, uninstall programs, and check desktops or servers and other issues. This will be terrific for those system managers. They will no longer have to run to the office to fix a problem.
People using this application on their iPhone will need to make sure that they are using VNC Enterprise Edition on their personal computer or laptop in order to be able to access it. Since it has very intense security features, you will not have to worry about that particular issue. Using your mobile device, you will be able to use touch, tap and drag to access features of the computer. It also has the mouse mode if you are more comfortable with this method. You will be able to scroll left, right, up and down as well as be able to scroll, all from your touchscreen. You simple enter text right from your touch screen or slid out keyboard. There are also buttons for shift, Ctrl, Alt and delete, just like your PC or laptop keyboard.
This really makes the iPhone a mobile office. To be able to remotely access all of the information on your computer will enable you to be much more productive. With a $10 price tag, this makes it one of the best applications as of yet. How many times have you wished you had a document with you at home? Now you will be able to remotely access it with a touch of a button.
