    You will require a remote app such as Teamviewer. It is a free app that you will need to install on both your Mac & iPad. I use it on a regular basis when I have to remotely access a clients computer. There are other apps out there, but I have found this the easy to learn and have never had any issues with it.

    I don't think so there is any app like that.

    Sorry if off topic but, is it true that logmein is getting rid of its free tier?

    I do it all the time with Teamviewer and Parallels Access as well. I just posted Teamviewer for the OP because it is free to use. Parallels Access will cost you money. Below are some images of my iPhone and iMac using Parallels Access. I am controlling the iMac with my iPhone.

    Just make sure you set it up correctly. Simple to do and works very well. I use it with clients & mom when they are having issues. Allows me to access remotely with ease. Especially since mom lives 3600 km from me. Saves me a lot of running around.
