This is a great app if you need to control a computer using VNC.
The only problem I have with it is that it is damn too expensive.
I think Edovia would get more than double it's customer base if they slashed their price by half.

Great VNC app. Includes "trackpad mode," 1Password integration, remote connection assistance, and pasteboard syncing. Pretty solid.
