bVNC Free - Secure VNC Viewer


Please support my hard work and GPL open-source software by buying the donation version of bVNC from Google Play. You can use this fully-featured version of bVNC for free for as long as you want with no strings attached.

If bVNC doesn't work for you, please report the problem through the “Send email" button in Google Play before writing a review. See below for setup instructions for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

If you need an RDP application, please search for bVNC's sister project aRDP in Google Play. In addition, a SPICE client named aSPICE is now part of the same project. Finally, if you are an oVirt, RHEV, or Proxmox user, you can check out Opaque VDI on Google Play as well.

Nice, but needs SSH2 support. Great VNC client. Several versions later, the ability to choose where one saves and loads ssh keys from, besides the default download directory, would be very nice. Ability to run multiple instances (connections) would be great.

VNC the Way it Should Be Fast, simple, and just plain works. Exactly the way a standards compliant VNC client should be. Great app, highly recommended.
