I can do this with the jackpal one but the mouse is NG.... I am using this VNC version since it seems to work the best connecting to ESXi VM's. I am trying to launch a specific connection form the command line or an activity starter in app inventor. I got to here but am having trouble passing the extras for the address & port: am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d vnc: -n com.iiorda nov.bVNC/.RemoteCanvasActivity -f 0x10000000

Excellent app + great payment model This is by far the best VNC client I've used for Android, which I use for accessing my local DebianKit chroot. The simple full featured + paid model is awesome and I wish it was more common. One feature that would make it even better would be to support AutoX locally (eg by supporting local custom commands for starting X + vnc to account for all the different chroot things). Ill probably implement this using seperate scripts for now.

Awesome! This is as good as it gets on a phone! I use it to connect to my Macbook Pro through an SSH connection. I can manage my Mac from any decent internet connection. It does an awesome job of handling my Retina screen on a Galaxy S4. That's no small feat given the screen and input differences between a smart phone and a laptop.

The best VNC viewer This is the best out of the many free viewers I have tried. It has everything necessary and it controls very fluidly. I've had only a handful of crashes in many months of use so it is very reliable. The dev was great at responding and fixing the issue when I noticed my jump from an S3 to Note 4 changed the back button to an Escape key.
