What does Splashtop Remote Desktop do? Basically, this app controls your computer using your iPad. Amazing isn’t it? Here’s our review of this iPad application:

It is very powerful and clever, imagine doing things that your iPad cannot do like play flash games, watch flash videos, play high-res games (hard to control though), edit your pictures using Adobe Photoshop, view them on Google’s Picasa, access your favorite internet browser with bookmarks, history and even extensions. Everything that you can picture doing on your computer you can now do it while only holding your iPad, thanks to Splashtop Remote Desktop.

With Splashtop Remote Desktop, your iPad becomes your PC!

User Interface

The applications’ user interface is modest and polished. It scans for available computer that operates Splashtop Remote automatically on start-up. No complicating set-ups. It alerts you when someone connects to your computer.


This application is remarkably handy, think of carrying your computer everywhere and has access to all of your files with Internet Discovery. Just sign in to Google and you can connect everywhere you are, just keep the Streamer running on your PC.


What you see is what you get; what you can see on your computer is also displayed on your iPad. Buy Splashtop Remote Desktop and install the desktop application for free (Splashtop Streamer). Fast to setup and swift to access.


  • Painless setup works in a jiffy
  • Password protection
  • Control your computer using your iPad
  • Internet Discovery
  • User friendly
  • Innovative
  • Access to different internet browsers
  • MS Office, Photoshop
  • Watch videos (I tried AVI and MP4)
  • Listen to your music library
  • Read PDF files


  • Some videos are a bit sluggish (I think it depends on your computer’s performance and video container used)
  • Internet Discovery is slow to respond (Depends upon your Internet Speed)


One of the must-have applications for your iPad.

Splashtop Remote Desktop is currently on sale and it is certainly the right time to buy this application. Admirable features that are definitely a steal for the price of $2.99. You can try the free version but has a limit of 5 minutes per session.

Splashtop Remote Desktop is simply amazing!
