    imageVeency Allows iPhone Users to Remotely Control their iPhone

    We have already seen apps like Apple's excellent iPhone Remote for iTunes which works over Wi-Fi and allows you to control the music on your computer or Apple TV from your iPhone. We have also seen iPhone apps on the App Store which allow you to remotely access your Windows...

      I have a nokia n95, which has lots of great apps, but I'm almost converted to an iphone.

      About 98% at this point lol

      All it's going to take is a couple more interesting posts like this. The apps I've read about are nothing short of amazing.

      This is very cool but how would you go back to your home screen while using VNC?

      Pretty cool! too bad there is no adapter so I can play these games on the iphone and view them on my TV and play them like the Nintendo Wii. Moto Racer would look cool on the big screen..

      Just tried it, and yeah its smart only prob is that you have to accept the connection physically on the handset at the minute so i cant really remotly log in yet, but great potential!

      I'm a electronics tech and an electrical engineer...I love using VNC at work and I see no real point in actually having this application on your iphone.

      I mean really...can't you just walk over to the next room and just GET your iphone??

      @Jack,

      I guess we are just lazy :)

      But you are right I couldn't think of any other practical use of the app other than the cool factor.

      cheers!

      being able to view your camera could be a great and interesting feature.

      Im suprised this hasn't been done already

      The purpose would be this

      what if you didnt have intenret at home

      you could just use this and make the window bigger and use your computer to surf through your iphone for free

      I mean you already pay for it.

      it has security implications. firstly if your phone is stolen you should be able to remotely access it and lock it, blow it up or short the crapola out of the thief. Also it works the other way round. vnc from our iphone to your pc. the application should allow for a pre-set password that does not ask the current user of the phone. as for the IP address over 3g how do you that?

    • via Wordpress

      The only thing I use it for is so I can work at my desk and send text messages from my phone, etc without undocking it and having to type on the iphone keyboard. I too would like to know if it can be used over 3G.

      >I too would like to know if it can be used over 3G.

      No, it doesn't, unless you establish a VPN first. You then need to find out what IP address you have on the VPN. If you have mobileTerminal installed, type "ifconfig" and look at the ppp0: entry. It'll depend on your VPN setup but for me, I use a PP2P connection to a windows SBS2003 server, and I get a 192.168.0.xxx address (xxx varies each time I connect). You can then use that 192 address in Chicken of the VNC.

      Pretty roundabout, but it works!

      You can remotely login without being near your iPhone. Just go to the settings screen(its where the general settings for the iphone reside) for Veency and set a password. Next time you login you just need to enter the password on your desktop VNC client and hey you are connected.

    • KaranKaran Posts: 10

      Yes you can, but only if the iPhone is on a network which provides globally static ip address to the devices/computers connected to it.

      I found a great reason to use this app. I use my iPod touch to play music on my 5.1 music system which isnt in the same room as where I work so I use this app to control what I am playing on my iPod :)

      Yeah, this thing is incredible in finicky service areas.

      So...1. I was able to successfully install both Veency and TightVNC server..2. I insert the IP address, located under my Settings> WiFi, into where the VNC client states "VNC Server:"...3. I click "Connect"...4. Yet I can never establish a connection? What am I doing wrong?NOTE: I am using my work IPs. There are multiple wifi connections throughout the office and I've tried them all. Unsuccessful!

      Guys seem to wonder what's the use of this. My iphone's touch pad is slightly defective. The middle portion doesn't work. So, I use veency to send messages. It's cool.
