Moreover, Screens provides extensive multi-touch support and it also allows you to connect to multiple computers or portable devices running VNC servers at a time, including Windows and Linux powered machines.
The multiple Screens sessions can be effortlessly managed via the Screens Library which, consequently, will also make it very simple to re-connect to any of your stored devices with a simple double click.
What is more, Edovia's Screens VNC client helps you to modify the authentication type for each of the stored machines at any given time, and it also provides you with the means to connect to the selected device with just a couple of mouse clicks.
