RealVNC, which will exhibit during next week's Mobile World Congress, today announced the release of its new VNC Viewer for Android. Following the success of the VNC Viewer for Apple's iPhone and iPad, this latest application allows users to connect to and take full control of a computer anywhere in the world from their Android smartphone or tablet. With VNC Viewer for Android, users can view and interact with their desktop and server, running applications and access files, exactly as they would if they were sitting in front of the computer itself. VNC Viewer offers a trackpad-style mouse for precision interactions and users can apply familiar touch, tap and drag gestures to control the computer.
Also supported is pinching to zoom into a specific area of the desktop or zooming out to see the entire screen. Text can be entered using the on-screen keyboard and a scrolling key bar for non-character keys such as cursor keys and Shift, Ctrl, Alt and Delete. VNC Viewer also features mouse button mode, incorporating virtual left, middle, right and scroll mouse buttons.
Android devices equipped with VNC Viewer can connect to any Windows, Mac OS X, Linux or UNIX computer installed with and running a VNC compatible Server. The recommended Server is VNC Enterprise Edition that provides robust, high-performance connections along with industry standard AES security.
RealVNC's VNC Viewer is now available from the Android Market for something around 7.00 Euro
