Veency is the name of the latest application that has been released today by Saurik, the author and maintainer of Cydia. Veency provides a VNC remote desktop server for your iPhone, allowing you to view the iphone springboard and everything else on it via your Mac/PC with any VNC client.

The best thing about this app is that it handles text entry. This means you can upload notes and type directly onto the iPhone.
Another nice feature, is the text alert like the screenshot in the top of the post.
No password is needed when establishing a connection there is also no on/off toggle, but both things are planned for a future release.

Below a video of the author demonstrating veency.

    Why it dosent work on my ipod touch??????

    I tried with the screensharing utility on my mac…. but it didnt work…. :cry:

    it keeps loading and loading and loading………….

  3. Jay Freeman (saurik) Says:

    For whatever reason, Apple’s screensharing client doesn’t support the server library I am using. Other VNC clients should work. Also, if you use 8-bit color, its much better speed-wise ;P.

    great app…a bit slow but I can use now a screen recorder software on my PC to make demos :wink:

  13. iCarl Says:

    just go to the site and search for the “vnc viewer free edition”

  14. Says:

    how do you push the home button from vnc? any short cut buttons?

  15. iCarl Says:

    for the home button just press the right mouse button the left one is for touch and the middle one (if available) for the lock screen, and keyboard for keyboard!!

    This is so awesome. I was looking for an app like this. What all can be done with this?

  17. Forest Godfrey Says:

    Jay – this thing is fantastic! I was wondering if you intended to open source it? Alternately, a method of accepting keyclicks from a Unix domain socket or fifo (something local to the phone) would work for what I want as well. Basically, I want to use Veency plus the iPhone serial port plus a little external microcontroller gizmo to build an external keyboard for the iPhone!

  18. Devin Says:

    Veency is never on the springboard! Oh, and use chicken of the VNC

  19. Quora Says:

    Is it possible to connect a 1st Gen iPhone to a Monitor?…

    How about using a vnc server on the jailbroken iphone, and using a vnc client on another machine connected to a monitor? ┬áNot quite a direct connection, but if the point is to get the contents of the screen in relative real-time, digitally, onto anothe…

  21. Rob Says:

    Does this require jailbreaking the iPhone?
