What is it about?
VNC Viewer is a great way to connect to your Mac, PC or Linux machine via VNC protocol. VNC viewer supports super high resolutions (up to 5120 by 2400) and works great, there is a very low latency which is expected. VNC Viewer is a $10 universal download and works with the free VNC server software or Mac OS X's own screen sharing feature.
Why we love it
For those who use super high resolutions for their work, VNC Viewer is one of the only apps that support such a resolution without suffering in performance.
