    I have three Mac Pros in a studio. Almost everyday I need to be in another part of the studio but still need to have Finder access to my host and slave Macs. I use Mocha VNC 4.4 as a part of my daily workflow. I wish Apple included Remote Desktop into iOS, but we have Mocha VNC thankfully. With the 12.9” iPad Pro and its large real estate I can freely move around and comfortably continue to work. I’m giving version 4.4 5-stars. I’m not sure their reasoning for providing a free lite version then suddenly giving it a 2 minute time period within a decimal upgrade, especially when many people have app upgrade on automatic. Luckily I don’t. I’m glad I read the description for 4.5 first. I feel that was a little sneaky. Perhaps so many people were happy enough with the Lite version they weren’t paying for the full version. Still, it could have been handled a little better. That being said, it’s only $5.99. And for an app that it a part of my daily workflow, I obviously have no problem paying. I like the features the full version adds, (mouse support- hopefully local, a Bluetooth mouse connected to my iPad Pro and fully controlling macOS just as if I was in front of Mac - I need to read the description further), Mouse Easy, and encrypted sign on. Question: Does Mocha VNC support Mission Control via function keys, the default F3 key (hasn’t worked for me), , macros or mouse gestures? I hope so. That’s something I need. I have two monitors connected to my host Mac Pro, and each monitor has at least four desktops via Mission Control, plus I use Screen Sharing in a full screen desktop to access my Mac slaves. It would be nice if a simple swipe gesture would allow me to easily move between desktops spaces. Regardless, my reason for writing a review is to say that I much fancy this solution which keeps macOS touch-screen free, than Windows 10. IMO, touchscreens are only ergonomically feasible if they can lay flat on a surface. Plus it enhances the Apple eco-system which I fully use and embrace, (AirPlay, iCloud and AirDrop). Anything Mocha VNC can add to improve functionality with these workflows would be very helpful. Thanks to the developer for making a VNC app that doesn’t require me to create an account, or sign up for a service like many of the other developers do. I will never support those apps where possible. Please keep Mocha VNC account-based free, and support Mission Control and the Apple eco-system (of you already don’t). I will be purchasing more MochaSoft apps.

    The time limit was raised to 5 minutes. Thank you! Honestly this is the most useful app that I have. I manage my Plex server and run ThinVNC on it. This app works perfectly. The controls and mouse clicks work well and I've been very happy with it. On average it takes about 5-10 seconds to connect and then I'm off doing whatever I need to do. I can right-click on taskbar icons and everything. I'd buy the full version if it was just a little bit cheaper.
  • Deleted - 2 min limit

    Since they changed it to a 2 min limit I have deleted the app, downloaded real vnc app.

    Removing and crippling the main functionality with an unannounced update is unprincipled. I would never trust such an underhanded developer.
  • Useless

    By metal989
    This used to be a great, free VNC viewer, but now closes a session after two minutes, making it pretty much useless.
  • Is this even legal?

    By local_fan
    One day, I am using a free lite version, and an "update" just crippled this software. Time to find a new app. (I went into my time machine, found the prior rev, and re-installed. Then I turned off auto-update on my iPad)

    The last update implanted a 2 minute time limit per session. What a joke and what a way to do business. That said, I wouldn't pay a dime for your full version as your business tactics tell me all I need to know about your company and products.

    1. Provide a useful but function-limited lite product. 2. Gain users' trust, then stealthily disable lite product. 3. Watch former users search for a different developer to give money to.

    This updated version puts a 2 minute time limit on connections. Sad!
  • Update not an update, but a downgrade

    By progravix
    There really should be rules about removing features from apps. I understand it's free, but a 2 minute limit added after years of it being unlimited. I can't justify the app to pay $$ for it. Now useless to me.
