The iPad is a useful portable device that comes packed with notes, contact and email apps that are pretty useful for many users. If you work on projects along with a team you will even have the possibility to install on your iPad one of the apps that provide access to cloud services. These apps help you remotely access and control your office PC. Here are only a few of these apps.
GoToMyPc for iPad is my first recommendation because it allows you to access all the files available on your computer directly from your iPad no matter where you are. This app comes with a user friendly interface and plenty of features. It offers you the possibility to type in Word documents and move windows. You will even be able to send and sync files and print documents directly from your tablet. To use this app on your iPad you will need to pay $20 per month, but the investment is definitely worth it.
Another remote app that you can install on your iPad is LogMeIn Ignition which is a flexible remote-access app available for $30. It offers smooth gesture controls and good performance over Wi-Fi and 3G. This app offers remote control on an unlimited number of computers and a nice user interface with various features. You can even transfer files remotely and save them on your device or print them on compatible wireless printers. This app also allows you to attach files to email messages and stream HD videos from a remote PC to your tablet.
You should also consider Splashtop Remote, an app developed by Splashtop to help you remotely control your PC from your iPad. It’s less expensive than any other remote control app mentioned above, being available for only $5. This app offers unique gestures for controlling your remote desktop efficiently. Once your tablet is connected to a local network, you can play movies, music and games the same way you do it on a laptop or PC.
