What’s New in Screens 4.0
- New User Interface Screens now includes groups, availability indicators and a more polished look without sacrificing usability.
- File Transfers You can now transfer files through drag and drop between Macs.
- Curtain Mode Block the remote display of the Mac you’re connecting to in order to keep curious eyes away. This was one of the most requested feature from our users and I’m happy that we are finally able to offer it!
- TouchBar Support Screens loves Touch Bar. It is the perfect app to make great use of the Touch Bar, especially in fullscreen mode!
- Tags You can now add tags to your saved screens to improve search.
- iCloud support Apple lifted some restrictions last year when introducing macOS 10.12 Sierra. One of them was iCloud not being available to app sold out of the Mac App Store. Screens is now sandboxed so it can access iCloud even if purchased outside the MAS.
- Momentum scrolling Screens now sends proper mouse events to Macs. This allows us to improve scrolling. It just feels natural.
- A new OpenGL renderer (it’s insanely fast!) The only thing slowing things down now with Screens 4 is your connecting quality and speed. Unless I’m mistaken, I believe this is the first time OpenGL is being used by a VNC app.
- Oneclick User Password This feature was first introduced in Screens for iOS. Apple improved security quite a bit a few macOS versions ago and that resulted in seeing the login window much more often when connecting via Screen Sharing. Having to type your password almost every single time on iOS was a pain but there’s no reason why this feature shouldn’t be available in Screens for macOS! Oneclick user password is also available as a customizable shortcut and on Touch Bar.
- Improved clipboard support There was a lot of work done in order to make sure that clipboard sharing was support like it should. We also made sure that some edge cases were taken care of.
- Improved URL scheme support Like it’s iOS counterpart, Screens for macOS now supports the RFC 2396 standard.
- Many performance improvements A lot of our source code is shared between both clients on iOS and macOS. This allowed us to improve performance, robustness and stability on macOS while being able to test and refine on iOS. This means that ScreensKit, our Screen Sharing engine, is now very reliable and proven.
