URL Schemes in Screens ➝

I use Screens to manage our home server remotely from my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Air. It’s an excellent piece of software and is my favorite VNC app by far. I just discovered that the app supports URL schemes, which means you can launch directly into a saved screen through an automation app like Shortcuts.

I setup a shortcut that is saved to my home screen with two actions:

  • A URL action with screens://[name of home server]
  • An Open URL action.

That’s it. Now I can tap on the shortcut and access our home server without having to select it from Screens’ interface.

Pay What You Want Mac Software Bundle ➝

From the “how it works” blurb:

With the Pay What You Want bundles, you can get something incredible for as little as you want to pay while making the world a better place. And if you beat the average price, you’ll receive the fully upgraded bundle!

The current price required to receive all ten apps is $5.10. I’d pay that for Screens alone, but you get nine other apps alongside it for practically nothing.
