I took my a while to configure, but it's worth it! I didn't know how to connect the app to the computer. I tried using UltraVNC, but with no success. Took the advice of one of the people who commented and tried it with RealVNC. Hallellujah! It worked! After and hour, but still. It's a really great app, and it saves me a LOT of time when using Sibelius! However, it would be great if it allowed you to chose not to turn off the screen while you're using it. And I also think the developers should add a detailed tutorial on how to configure the app with at least 2 or 3 desktop servers.
Works great with RealVNC I already had RealVNC running on my Sib machine so it was easy ... just needed to change the encryption option to "prefer" rather than "always". Up and running within 5 minutes. Please get rid of the ads - I would happily pay for this. But please have an option which automatically stops the screen from timing out. That would bring it up to 5 stars.
Solve it in 1 hour Before, i didn't know what the hell vnc is. After an hour and so messing around, I finally found my way through. A tip from me, install RealVNC for your desktop or laptop running sibelius. I installed UltraVNC and I wasted my time trying to understand what this vnc client tried to tell me. RealVNC is much more understandable.
Great stuff This really will be an asset when I am using Sibelius. I did try and use the ultra vnc server before but I failed to understand what this program does and why I needed a different remote desktop porgram. Now that I understand it was amater of seconds before I was set up and using this wonderful little app that really does free up my workspace when I am arranging and composing.
Great app! What a great idea to mirror the Sibelius keypad on an Android device's screen! I'm using it on a Nexus 7, a Windows 7 PC and Sibelius 7, and it's great. It took a few minutes to figure out how to configure UltraVNC properly, but after that it worked flawlessly. Hoping the dev will allow the main keypad buttons to be coloured or sunken-looking when they are pressed, to provide some visual feedback the same way that the Sibelius on-screen keypad does.
Once I had read in the isntructions how to find the IP address it worked a treat. Very simple, very clean, and puts the symbols and the tap point in the same place (rather than key pad and screen) and it means I can use a reduced keyboard woht android phone to hand. Thanks
limited OSX Lion support is now available. VNC ompatibility is available via the Vine Server 4.0 Beta which may be downloaded from http://www.testplant.com/support/downloads/vine/ Note that the default port Vine uses is 5901 not 5900. However you may experience problems with the top row of numeric keypad. This is a known issue and will be fixed in a future update.
