Remote desktop tool for mobile

VNC Viewer - Remote Desktop is a free-to-download productivity application for mobile from developer RealVNC Limited. It is a remote desktop solution that helps users access their computers from anywhere using their smartphones or tablets. It uses the official VNC Connect program to connect multiple devices together.

Just like AnyDesk Remote Control or TeamViewer Remote Control, VNC Viewer - Remote Desktop makes it easy for users to control their PCs and simulate mouse and keyboard input. After its free trial offer, there are multiple personal and enterprise subscription plans available to choose from if they want to use it further.

An extension of your PC

Desktop PCs serve as powerful all-around machines utilized for both work and play. The same goes for laptops that let things get done while on the go. However, there will be times when you only have your smartphone and tablet with you but need to access your home computer. Remote desktop solutions can help, and VNC Viewer - Remote Desktop is one such example.

This program offers remote access solutions that help connect computers and mobile devices. First, register for an account and install VNC Connect on the PC you want to view and access. Then install the program on your device and log in. You will see your PC from the list of connected devices. Select it and that's it. You can now control it like normal.

As mentioned, it simulates mouse and keyboard input with virtual implementation, but you can also opt to use Bluetooth peripherals for the same. Just a couple of things to keep in mind. The first is that the app doesn't support Android 12 or 13 yet. Secondly, you'll need a fast internet connection to avoid the input lag that some users are reporting they've experienced.

Be productive anywhere

Overall, VNC Viewer is a great solution to your remote desktop needs that is easy to use and works seamlessly across your devices. The registration and setup process is quick, and you can have it running in no time at all. Plus, support for Bluetooth peripherals is a nice bonus and is appreciated. Give this one a try now.
