Posted on Google’s Chromium Issue Tracker:
“Chromoting” a client for Andriod & iOS which lets you control your computers from other computers) needs general Visual Design help to make it more consistent with our look and feel.
As noted, the iOS version is very unpolished at this stage. The toolbar icons are all placeholder, and the background color behind the host screen needs to be changed from blue to black. The upper toolbar for iOS (containing just the back button, so it can barely be called a toolbar), is revealed by tapping on the compass in the lower toolbar. Our plan is to consolidate the upper and lower toolbars into one toolbar that will likely be located in the upper section of the screen.
We anticipate the iOS client will ship after the Android client given they are different stages of implementation. link
For the “normals” this might make for a nice (re: FREE) VNC, while for the “paranoids”, this is so clearly one more way for Google to catalog your personal data. Me? I’ll try just about anything, but I hope “Chromoting” is in quotes for a reason…not sure I love that name.
