Cursor Control Modes

Screens for iOS offers two cursor control modes: Touch Mode and Trackpad Mode.

Touch Mode

By default, Screens uses touch-based gestures to control your remote computer. With Touch Mode, Screens takes care of moving the remote cursor so you don't have to.

If you prefer to move the remote cursor as you would with a mouse or a trackpad, you can enable Trackpad Mode instead.
