Please support my hard work and GPL open-source software by buying the donation version of bVNC from Google Play. You can use this fully-featured version of bVNC for free for as long as you want with no strings attached.

If bVNC doesn't work for you, please report the problem through the “Send email" button in Google Play before writing a review. See below for setup instructions for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

If you need an RDP application, please search for bVNC's sister project aRDP in Google Play. In addition, a SPICE client named aSPICE is now part of the same project. Finally, if you are an oVirt, RHEV, or Proxmox user, you can check out Opaque VDI on Google Play as well.

    I downloaded the six highest ranked vnc clients on the Android market and tested them all over about two months. There is a learning curve to every app, but the more I played with them, I found myself comparing the other apps to Bvnc.

    This is the only VNC client that won't cripple a Bluetooth keyboard's arrow, other motion, function, and Ctrl & Alt keys. Ditto for "Hacker's Keyboard". [Every other VNC client will mess up those keyboards.] It also has decent latency over the network. Well worth donating for.

    One of the best VNC clients i've seen, but here is a strange bug. When i'm trying to type '%less%' symbol i got '>' same as typing '>'! Please fix it) I cant program without "less". I had no problems with other common symbols.
