    I have a windows xp pc, wanting to access on wifi locally and with 3G when out, and would need the ability to wake from sleep. So tell me which remote desktop app is better for me..??

    Your opinions and experience is appreciated...

    I use CrazyRemote and have had no problems with it. (And it was cheaper than anything else around.)

    I've tried logmein but I didnt really like it to much, pretty slow and kinda buggy

    TeamViewer is free and great. use it all the time. i've also tried Wyse pocketcloud and that worked fine as well... also free. Might need to use a separate WOL app but i leave my machine on all the time so it's not an issue for me. you can pay for a Pro or Premium version of pocket cloud that adds features like remote sound and such if you really need that sort of thing.

    logmein is really good. lets you log into your pc remotely from anywhere for free, but the iphone application is like 28 bucks or something ....

    TeamViewer works great. Use it on IPhone and IPad for a desktop and a laptop.

    I use Jaadu VNC. Pricey but very very good and great support/setup guide via their website.

    For those that used LogMeIn - is there a free version you tried or do you have to pay the $29.99 to see if it worked for you?

    Wyse PocketCloud has a lot of features and polish, as well as enterprise grade support.

    I have log me in for my home computer and pocket cloud for work. I used them both on my iPad and they are great apps. The only pita issue with pocket cloud is the keyboard, but that is more so because of me job then anything else.

    I too have been using Teamviewer on my Desktop and tried the same on my iPad, it worked wonderful. I could also use function keys like F1 and F2 for my old DOS based programmes.. And the best part is that it's absolutely free..

    For me LogMeIn Ignition is very reliable. Not the fastest but works pretty much all the time (3G and wifi).
    Under local wifi I have Splashtop Remote Desktop for iPad to watch flash video. I have no need for gaming but I understand it work well for that as well.

    I am very pleased with Pocket Cloud. I like the motif for exact cursor control and right click. I also like TinyTERM for terminal emulation - not something most probably need but it is like the desktop version where it reigns as far as terminal types, F keys, protocols.

    Logmein. Hands down. Way faster. Fstest remote desktop app I've ever used. Sets up with login and password, not an ip address, so it's easy, and you can access from anywhere (decent speeds on 3G even, but who uses that?) and has built in file sharing and file management.

    Did I mention it's the fastest remote desktop app I've ever seen? Not just for iPad, but for anything. Ever.

    You might want to clarify what "best" means. I find that I prefer VNC apps locally though my setup doesn't support VNC if I'm not on my own network.

    I use itap for rdp access to my home computers. Speed is better than vnc most of the time, just can't game from rdp connections.

    I use the logmein. We use the free version at work and I got them to pay the $30 for my iPad version. Works really well. $30 is steep tho.

    I just wanted to revive this thread and see what the latest and greatest remote desktop app is?

    I too have a MacBook Pro - if camera access is possible then you have a remote security camera capability with the right remote desktop software???

    Is Logmein still the preferred app?

    Been using 2X Client and been happy. Free app, doesn't have a lot of the restrictions I was coming arcross with most Remote Desktop Clients (most of them I tried didn't let you right click for context menus, only left clicks).

    Yes to whoever asked about Logmein - you have to cough up $29.99 to try it and are stuck. I tried Splashtop remote - works good and it's claim to fame is it will pull sound through to your ipad. Here's the problem i had though... It would turn on my computer mic and I could hear everything going on in the room, house or wherever my computer was through to my ipad along with the sound of video etc... Never could get it worked out.

    I tried TeamViewer and although no sound - works flawlessly.

    Here is another preference thing... The others (besides Teamviewer) work like your finger is the mouse, where your finger is, your mouse it and you have to click where you want it clicked. In Teamviewer it works like the touchpad on a laptop - you can just swipe it where ever and it will move the mouse and then just double or single tap where your finger is when your mouse icon is where you want it even if not same place - for instance, I hold my ipad and just "scroll" in the lower right corner with my thumb and can run my mouse all over the screen, with others you have to touch where you want it exactly...

    Teamviewer works.
