Posted In Android - By Techtiplib on Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 With No Comments »

GlavSoft software development company released an update for its Remote Ripple Android app, a remote desktop client for accessing, viewing and controlling PC, Mac and Unix systems. Version 2.1 offers improved stability, features a more user-friendly interface, a tweaked “mouse tool” and added support for an external mouse.

Remote Ripple for Android enables users to remotely access their computers via VNC servers. With its help users can monitor their computers’ activity, provide remote support, assist in installing software, and administer servers, workstations and virtual machines.

Remote Desktop for Android

Remote Ripple 2.1 improves the usability of its “mouse tool”, an in-app widget that appears on a screen of user´s device as a transparent mouse with six buttons and a scrollbar. Activated by a single tap, “mouse tool” provides users with access to all functions of Remote Ripple. It allows the app to fill the whole screen of an Android device with the image of the remote desktop without cluttering it with menus or control elements. The update makes it easier for users to keep track of the “mouse tool” while changing the orientation of the device or using the virtual keyboard. Remote Ripple 2.1 also gives users an opportunity to use an external mouse connected via USB or Bluetooth as an alternative to “mouse tool”.

The app interface in Version 2.1 has also received a variety of important tweaks, reducing the number of menus and making it more user-friendly and intuitive. Moreover, Remote Ripple now saves the mouse pointer position and image scale for each separate connection, ensuring the consistent display of desktop in each consequent connection.

Finally, the update adds German and Spanish to previously existing English and Russian languages and fixes a problem with in-app purchases that made it impossible for some users to upgrade from free to PRO edition.

Price and availability

Remote Ripple runs on Android 2.1 and higher and is available for download from Google Play Market in free and PRO editions. PRO edition allows users to take full-size screenshots of a remote desktop and ensures fast operation with reduced RAM usage over slow networks in 64-color mode.

The price of the PRO edition is $3.99.
