Veency is a dream come true for me. I’ve always wished I could get in and control my iPod touch on my Mac!
Unfortunately, the current beta release (0.9.2591-1) doesn’t work with Leopard’s build-in Screen Sharing. What a bummer! Fortunately the author, Jay Freeman (aka “saurik”) is aware of this issue and, I’m sure he’s working hard to resolve it.
Luckily for us, there are plenty of VNC clients (for Leopard and Tiger) that are compatible with Veency. I’m using JollysFastVNC because it’s tiny in size, works out-of-the-box, and a freeware. All you need to get going is key in your iPod touch/iPhone’s IP address (which you can find out in Settings -> Wi-Fi) in the Network Address field. You do not need to change the default value of all other settings.
Controlling your iPod touch/iPhone via your Mac is easy. Below are the not-so-obvious:
Home Button = Right-click your mouse
Swipe Action = Press & hold your mouse’s left button and drag
As usual, you could swipe right to go to the next page, but a far easier trick is to click on the right-side of the page navigation dots (shown shown in red.)
