RealVNC recently announced that its mobile viewer apps for iOS, Android, and Chrome have gone free. These top rated remote access apps are now available for free. The price tag is no more! Go get them for free from the App Store, Play Store, and Chrome Web Store respectively.

“There have always been free versions of VNC, and there always will be,” confirmed Dr Andy Harter, CEO of RealVNC and the person responsible for VNC. “Fifteen years ago VNC helped to create the whole remote access market, and we are still leading innovation and development of remote access products.”


With VNC Viewer for iOS you can connect from your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad to a machine that runs VNC-compatible Server technology and remotely control that machine. You can run applications, change various settings, view the desktop, and more. To sum it up, from your iOS-powered mobile device, you can remotely control the machine as if you were sitting in front of it.

The same sort of functionality is offered to Android users by VNC Viewer for Android. They can use their Android-powered smartphone or tablet to remotely connect to a computer and remotely control it.

VNC Viewer for Chrome lets you do all the bits mentioned above, all within your browser. From within the Chrome web browser you can connect to a machine that runs VNC-compatible Server technology and remotely control it.

All these applications, VNC Viewer for iOS, VNC Viewer for Android, and VNC Viewer for Chrome, all used to cost money – but not anymore. RealVNC, developer and provider of VNC remote access and control software, recently announced that its mobile viewer apps for iOS, Android and Chrome are all free.

“RealVNC is as committed to the freemium model for our leading remote access application as ever, with a Free license for our core VNC product available from our website, and free mobile viewers in the app stores. Additionally, our free, cloud-enabled helpdesk tool deskhop traverses firewalls and allows two Facebook users to share their screens and troubleshoot issues or collaborate remotely,” said Adam Greenwood Byrne, Vice President Hosted at RealVNC. “During 2014 we will be putting that same cloud functionality and firewall traversal into all of our Viewers and Servers, providing an optional service for businesses and consumers. It’s an exciting year with plenty of change, during which our commitment to the community at large will be undiminished.”
