Valence

Valence


Valence turns your Android phone or tablet into a remote keyboard and mouse for any computer running a VNC server.

Note: I rely on your feedback about bugs and issues you may encounter with Valence. Please drop me an email if you have any problems, and let me know which VNC server software you are using. Mentioning problems in reviews is not sufficient, since I can't respond or ask more questions about the problem.

The inspiration for Valence was a need to control a home theater PC from the couch, but it can be useful in any situation where a computer doesn't have a keyboard and mouse handy. Your computer must be reachable over the network from your Android device, and be running a VNC server.

Valence now supports right-clicking (by tapping with two fingers at the same time) and scrolling (by swiping two fingers up and down).

For more information about using Valence and configuring a VNC server on your computer, follow the website link below or view the online help (Menu->Help).

Recent changes:
v1.4 2012-07-12: Allow multiple VNC servers on the same host address (with different port numbers).
v1.3 2011-09-19: Adding support for "Mac authentication," which is required for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
v1.2 2011-09-06: Added a "use button-2 instead of button-3 for two-finger tap" option to work around Apple's ARD v3.5 update to Snow Leopard, which otherwise breaks right-clicking.
v1.1 2011-08-27 Fixed a critical bug that was preventing two-finger taps and swipes from working on certain devices.

Perfect if you do right, read below This is perfect but the fist time I tried this PC would not connect even though a vnc server installed so uninstalled and then followed developers web help and installed vnclight and it connected immediately. Using on HTC One that never fails to work with anything and Samsung tablet that now rooted also rarely faulters through W7 PC. Brilliant if you have setup similar to mine where PC has HDMI connected to TV. Sony Bravia looses ability to get YouTube, Demand 5 (don't buy Sony) this helps solve issue!
