What app are/were you using? I have RemoteTap on my iPhone, and while it's not quite as fast as sitting at the Mac itself, it is supposed to be the fastest available. They don't use the built-in VNC server in OS X... you install their own server, which renders the display in a manner that is optimized for the iPhone. I don't have an iPad (yet), but if they have a version optimized for the iPad's faster hardware, it might be better still.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
