Samsung Phone aSPICE: Secure SPICE Client versionv3.8.4 Download

Please support my work and GPL open-source software by buying the donation version of this program called aSPICE Pro! Please report any issues to me through the “Send email" button in Google Play before writing a review.

If aSPICE doesn't work for you, before writing a review, please post your question in the forum:

If you need an VNC viewer, please search for aSPICE's sister project bVNC in Google Play. In addition, an RDP client named aRDP is part of the same project. Finally, if you need .vv file support or are an oVirt, RHEV, or Proxmox user, you can check out Opaque VDI on Google Play as well.

If your mouse pointer is not in sync with where you tap, you can use "Simulated Touchpad" input mode, or better, you can add an "EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet" to your virtual machine (when it's powered off) and then power it on. To add the Tablet:
- If configuring through virt-manager, Go to the View->Details section, and select Add Hardware->Input->EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet.
- If running your virtual machine on the command-line, you need an option similar to: "-device usb-tablet,id=input0"

Reviews

Amazing, but still needs some improvements

very nice it works great! it should be awesome if you add support to ovirt/RHEV ".vv" files, which contains all the parameters needed to open a spice/VNC conection.

Great tool!

excellent Works perfectly.

ótimo (great) Please, I need to use sound input function works... thankx!!!

very good app just works it's great app better than rdp 5 stars if sound works

Very nice Looking forward to ovirt/rhev support! The new connection ui could use a facelift. Great work!

Works! Lenovo IdeaTab A2107A-F This is great!

Very good client This open-source Spice client might be the only one available on Android, but it is great! Although it currently lacks a few Spice features, it is all I needed to use my KVM/Spice VMs from my phone. Thank you!

Very very poor

Very nice I don't see any alternative. Tnx.

doesnt work on ssus zenfone 5 according to logcat non-x86 libraries are being loaded and arm apk is installed. either wrong .apk is fetched from google play (wrong cpu arch detection on google's side?) or wrong manifest info on author's side. it works fine on zenfone2 w though.

Great app. works like a charm with ASUS Zenfone 2 (linux deploy + VX ConnectBot)

Not much to say excepy "unfortunately aspice stopped" a few seconds after launch. Galaxy Tab 10.1 GT-P5210

Not work It not work

Pretty nice app! I love being able to run Windows at nearly full speed w/ qemu-kvm and push video/audio w/ SPICE. Would it be possible to get an option to stretch the received screen though? on my Zenfone 2, a 640x480 screen is ultra tiny and if you manually pinch-to-zoom, it doesn't end up fitting the screen right.

Crippled Because of the "pro upgrade" nag, this app is fairly useless. In particular, it is impossible to generate an SSH key, because every activity change triggers the nag screen and discards activity state. Additionally, there are usability issues with the virtual keyboard, specifically Ctrl+Alt+Delete does not work. Overall, a good start on an app that just needs some improvements.

Not opening console.vv files I want to open my vm's console.vv file from my smartphone but it doesn't let me open....it crashes...plz fix this...i need it for Ovirt

App Spice mobile andiord phone security

How How do I login in to start the virtual machine I'm new and don't know how to work it
