SplashTop Remote Delivers Your Desktop to Your Tablet

Posted by Andrew at 3:16 PM on January 30, 2011

Andy McCaskey visits SplashTop and chats to Sergei about their SplashTop Remote app that allows you to see and use your PC desktop on your iOS or Android device.  Why would you want to do this? Perhaps you want to edit some Ms Office documents on your tablet while sitting in the living room. Or perhaps you want to play your favorite (Flash) game that’s not available for the iPad. Basically, SplashTop Remote allows you to use your PC by remote control (if you’ve ever used VNC, you’ll get the idea). There are two components to the setup – there’s a program that’s installed on the PC and then app for the mobile device. Naturally, there’s more info on the website.

It’s available now. $1.99 for the iPad and $4.99 on Android.

    I have this for my iPad and it’s well worth the price. Very easy to setup and use.
