Veency Remote Desktop Server for iPhone

Veency Remote Desktop Server for iPhone

Posted September 18, 2008 at 10:12pm by iClarified
Saurik has released Veency, a remote desktop server for your iPhone..

Veency allows you to access your iPhone via any Mac or PC. You can then view your Springboard and access other applications through your computer.

Currently there is no password or toggle for the server; however, these features are planned in the future.

If your device has ever been just out of reach, this package is for you: you'll never need to touch your iPhone or iPod Touch again! Instead, sit back and enjoy the comfort of remotely logging into your phone via VNC. You can view the screen, touch controls, and even push the lock and menu buttons all from the comfort of your desk or laptop.

To activate, simply install it. When connections come in you will get a notification dialog asking if you want to accept. You can tell if there are any active clients by way of an icon on the status bar. Just remember VNC is not a very fast protocol.

You can watch the video below for a demonstration

*EDIT: JollysFast VNC is an better choice for Mac.

I´ll have to accept connection every time i connect from VNC. With that this app isn+t very useful. Is there a workaround for that?

Anyone get problem with their network at the Mac computer after used this app!? Mine have slow down wit about 50%!?? Any clues ideas how to fix it??

@Kendall: okay thx mate. But as I was faster then u to find it out I´ll give the guys, and u, an advice how to connect it with mac. Download "Chicken of the VNC" from somewhere (for example here--> ) click the chicken and BAM it will work well and smooth.

Geez.. calm down :/ Once you have installed it on your iPhone, you need to connect with a separate program from your computer. I don't use a mac. Perhaps someone who does can help you find the best client for your needs, but for now google will have to suffice. There are tons of suggestions there. I'm sure it shouldn't be too hard to google that, download it and install it. Once you've done that, you connect to your iPhone's IP (Settings -> WiFi -> Little blue button next to network name -> IP Address) and a message will appear on your iPhone screen.

Can someone explain how to connect with this please!! Have install it from Cydia but can´t see anything either on my Mac screen or my iPhone screen!!?? How to do??
Kendall - September 20, 2008 at 10:41am
Then you're not going to be able to use it, are you?
Louis - September 20, 2008 at 10:26am
Thank you Kendall. I can't install Cydia because I have a 3G not jailbroken using COMCEL in Bogota. I miss out on all the programs other than the silly ones at the Apple store.
Kendall - September 20, 2008 at 8:50am
Veency is on the iPhone - it can be installed via Cydia. You then need a second application on your PC/Mac to connect to the program you've installed on your iPhone. You can get tightVNC at - you can use the Java version on a Mac, I assume.

from where do I download this app? Does it go on the iphone or the Mac or PC?
Kendall - September 20, 2008 at 5:49am
Don't really think this warrants a tutorial, but thanks for letting us know about it! Been wanting something like this for ages. For the awesome factor rather than any practical use, of course. Great work! For those who haven't used VNC before, the phone is just running the server. You need a VNC client on the computer in order to connect - for most Linux distros, there is already one installed called vncviewer, for Windows, tightVNC works great. Dunno for mac.

How do you activate this app? I have installed it on my jailbroken 2.1 iPhone from Cydia, but nothing icon to start, no notification on my iMac...nothing? Help! Thanks
iDood - September 19, 2008 at 7:14pm
But what is this for or what can I do with this?
rada70 - September 19, 2008 at 4:56pm
Just a question, is there a compatibility issues with installing Cydia along with Installer. I have a 2G phone with Installer running FW1.1.4 . thanks
