When I first moved into my new office I was located upstairs and my conference room was downstairs. I would often only carry my iPad into the conference room when I was having a staff meeting or a conference with a client. Sometimes it ended up that I needed to recall some information from my computer and it became cumbersome to excuse myself and grab my laptop. The solution was Splashtop. What Splashtop did was to allow me to access my computer upstairs from my iPad and control everything as if I was up there. By installing the Splashtop server on any computer I wanted to access I could just connect to it. Whatever I could do on my computer I could control with touch on my iPad wirelessly through the same WiFi network. The only thing that I could not do was control my computer from remote locations. However, with a recent update Splashtop has added the option, for a yearly or monthly fee, to remotely access your computers from any location. Splashtop is the perfect solution to access your desktop or laptop computer remotely so that you only need your iPad wherever you go.
