The best remote out Finally an app that is strictly mouse and keyboard! No 'server' app needed, connects thru vnc like a charm on all my linux boxes. This is the only app that rivals 'HippoRemote' on iOS, no need to use my iPod touch to control my media center anymore! Thank you so much! Ps. It was hard to find this app, tried atleast 5 others before finding what I needed.
Absolutely top notch OS-independent? Check. No proprietary server install like other KB/Mouse apps? Check. Native keyboard support? Check! Honestly the use of VNC protocol makes this king. Now its just little things that will make this program top of the heap.
The best Its really cool.. the benifit comes out when you are relaxing on the bed in your room and your friend out there on your desktop or laptop is searching for a file on it and you are too lazy to get up and show him. You start valence and bingo.... Awesome app keep up the good work.
Useful and effective If you have VNC set up on your computer, or it comes with it, this is a fantastically useful app if you don't intend to be sitting next to the computer, yet using its media. Particularly useful when using streamed services and if the laptop is plugged into a projector / TV with a short lead that means its not easily to hand. Easy to figure out, easy to set up. Some more customisable options would be nice to make it more rounded, but its brilliant for what it is (which is free!). The iOS equivalent is superb (Hipporemote), but since you're not paying, why expect all the bells and whistles?
Simple and efficient The only issue I've found was that when you type 6 you get another chara among it. Being using this app for like 4 years already and that is the only complain that I got.
Spot on Works exactly how I need it to. The only thing... Maybe a redesign to get rid of the text in the center, or an option to loose it? But love the app. Thanks!
v1.4 2012-07-12: Allow multiple VNC servers on the same host address (with different port numbers).
v1.3 2011-09-19: Adding support for "Mac authentication," which is required for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
v1.2 2011-09-06: Added a "use button-2 instead of button-3 for two-finger tap" option to work around Apple's ARD v3.5 update to Snow Leopard, which otherwise breaks right-clicking.
v1.1 2011-08-27 Fixed a critical bug that was preventing two-finger taps and swipes from working on certain devices.
