AlwaysOnPC VNC Settings

With AlwaysOnPC's VNC client you easily operate your online PC desktop, applications and files. The cursor tracks the direction of your finger swipes on the iPhone surface. It must be placed over a screen area, menu item or icon in order to click to select or double click to open.

Global VNC configuration settings, including cursor operation, are set by tapping the Options button on the upper left corner of the Home screen, launching the Advanced settings window.
