Remoter Labs today is pleased to announce the release of Remoter VNC 3.4.2 for iPhone and iPad, an update to version 3.4 of their productivity app that enables users to remotely control Macs via Screen Sharing, and Windows or Linux computers using the VNC or RDP standards right from their iOS devices, and with full external keyboard support. The app uses Bonjour and NetBIOS to make setup a cinch, and it features a novel and highly praised “virtual trackpad” that allows to control the mouse cursor intuitively. RemoterFusion, which provides sound redirection and easy setup, RDP, Telnet and SSH support are available as in-app purchases.
Full support for external keyboards was added in version 3.4 of the app, and with this update, some issues with it have been corrected. Retina level artwork and support was also added with this update, and now the app is 100% compatible with the new iPad. These changes make Remoter the best and most complete remote desktop app in the App Store.
The app offers one of the fastest implementations of the VNC and RDP protocols on the iOS platform. Operation is intuitive, with a well thought out interface that allows users to either tap on the screen and have taps converted into clicks on the remote system, or use a unique “virtual trackpad” that gives users precise control, and ease of use. A drag or stylus mode on the iPad version is also provided, which gives users the ability of easily dragging items, or drawing on their computers directly from their iPad just by using their fingers or a stylus.
On Macs, setup is now ultra-simple with the RemoterFusion add-on. Port-forwarding and/or dynamic DNS is no longer needed in order to establish connections from outside the computer’s network. This add-on also provides sound redirection, which allows listening to music tracks, or any sound playing remotely on the computer from the iOS device. RemoterFusion can be tested for free for 24 hours.
Otherwise, local session set-up is still simple, all the computers from the WiFi network are found using both the Bonjour and NetBIOS standards. The user then taps on the desired connection, and all queried information such as computer name, IP address, service port, and more auto-populates the set-up screen. The user then only needs to enter the VNC password to complete setup. A button labeled “Advanced” reveals many useful advanced options, like color depth, server scaling setting, compression level and more.
Unless you have been completely disconnected this year, one of the hottest games for the iPhone and iPad of 2010 was Infinity Blade. The medieval style first person game is stunning both from a graphical perspective as well as a game play and story line. I’ve played it for countless hours (you can find me in the Game Center at AlliOSNews) and it never gets old and always remains challenging. Infinity Blade II hit the App Store just a few weeks ago and already people are saying it is the game for iOS devices. I am hardly one to argue….
If you just can’t get enough Infinity Blade in your life, Epic Games has a great selection of Infinity Blade II wallpapers on their website for the game. The set of six wallpapers come in sizes specifically for the iPhone, iPod and iPad and up to 1920×1080 for Mac and PC users. All of them look pretty darn stunning!
