The popular VNC client for iOS, Screens, has recently received an update. Now, the application supports Apple’s upcoming OS X Lion, and various performance improvements have also been made in the update.

As outlined in the app’s release notes, features of the update include:

  • Compatible with OS X 10.7 Lion,
  • New authentication methods (see User Guide > Connection Settings),
  • Improved speed,
  • Improved performance,
  • Improved compatibility with many Windows VNC servers,
  • Additional keyboard support for many languages,
  • Bug fixes.

While OS X Lion compatibility is a major aspect of this update, it’s great to see Screens‘ developer striving to improve the performance of the application (which, it must be said, is already very good). The application itself comes with a hefty price-tag ($19.99, which is the going rate for a decent VNC client – though some are cheaper), however we can assure you that Screens‘ performance is great. And now the app has been updated, Screens will be even better.

As mentioned, the app is priced at $19.99, and it’s also universal, meaning the same version will run natively on all of your iOS devices.
