    Hello
    I got a pc at home and want to use the iPad with it. Maybe as a tool or something. Remote. Etc...

    How do you do?

    Please provide a bit more info.

    Do you mean something like Astropad?

    There's also TeamViewer, GotomyPC and Logmein, which allows you to control your computer by way of the iPad.

    I personally prefer Microsoft's Remote Desktop client app for iOS. I use it daily on my iPhone 6S Plus and my iPad Air 2. It works flawlessly for accessing my Windows 10 PCs (my desktop and laptop). I can sit out in the living room on the couch with my iPad and have full access to everything on my PCs... even the Windows 10 "touch" gestures on my desktop (which doesn't have a touch screen) work well through the iPad!

    I can't wait to upgrade to the 12.9" Pro soon, as Remote Desktop will be so much better!

    I never used it on an iPad, I only have an iPad mini and connecting remotely to the servers I'm responsible for, on the mini is downright painful.

    I've done it, because I was paged and I needed to resolve an issue, but still, I avoid it.
