Access Mac Remotely from iOS Devices

Access Mac Remotely from iOS Devices

There are many times when we want to connect to the computer to do some work remotely, but you don’t find a lot of options. With the emergence of new technology, there are newer ways to connect remotely, and while some VNC mobile programs would cost about $30 or higher, there are some Free options as well.

 

PocketCloud Companion

This is a VNC app that is used to remotely access Mac from any iOS device. This works better on iPad than on iPhone because of the big screen size of iPad.

It uses Wi Fi to connect to your computer remotely and work with your Gmail account. Once you download PocketCloud Companion from Apple store and remote PocketCloud client for the iOS device, both programs will connect than in no more than 5 minutes.

To set it up on the Mac system, go to Sharing under Preferences and click on remote Management. Click on Computer Settings, and check the option that says VNC viewers can control screen with a password. Give a password there. Now open PocketCloud Companion to organize the account.

PocketCloud Companion has a small Touch pointer that makes navigation easier.

 

RDM plus Desktop Lite

This is another VNC program, and is quite similar to PocketCloud. The free version of this program is ad supported; however, the interface of this app is better than PocketCloud.

RDM + Desktop Lite’s for iPod touch and iPhone, but is can also be used on iPad. Once you download it, you can install the remote client on your Apple device. This process is easier than the one carried out in PocketCloud.

Both these apps support virtual keyboard in case you want to do typing. Though this option is slow, but it would certainly help you when you need it. These free apps are great for remote access. If you haven’t tried them yet, then you must do it at least once. Or if you’ve tried some other app for remote computing, let us know about it through your comments.
