I’m on the road constantly as a traveling regional sales manager and need a way to access my Asus PC at home. My iPad comes in handy for a lot of things, but it doesn’t offer the same power or programs that my PC does. After talking with a few people at one of the stores I visit, I learned about Splashtop. I’ve only used it for a few weeks, but it has helped me a lot.
it’s a little laggy depending on where I am
I didn’t expect it to work very well; after all, how could my iPad run the same programs my Asus does? Well, I didn’t know much about remote access and didn’t realize how it worked. Basically, Splashtop lets me stream my desktop to my iPad, which I can’t believe really works. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s a little laggy depending on where I am. Otherwise, I don’t really notice a slowdown and can access my documents and files easily all on my iPad.
