Control Your PC From Your iPad With Remote Desktop Apps

For all its great apps, the iPad has quite a ways to go before it'll be ready to replace a desktop PC. But that doesn't mean you can't leave your laptop at the office and travel light. Given a sufficiently stable Internet connection, your iPad can control your PC from anywhere.

There's no shortage of remote desktop apps to choose from in the Apple App Store. Dozens of apps promise you the power to drive your PC from a distance. We rounded up four of the leading downloads--Citrix GoToMyPC, LogMeIn Ignition, Splashtop Remote Desktop, and Wyse PocketCloud Pro--to see which one delivers the best blend of control, performance, and convenience. Here's what we found

Citrix GoToMyPC

A longtime favorite of PC users, GoToMyPC pioneered consumer-friendly remote desktop access long before it was cool. It offers a range of service levels from basic end-user access to enterprise-level accounts with advanced security and administrator features. The basic one-computer service starts at $99 per year, and all plans include the iPad app.

Of the apps we tried, GoToMyPC had the most-straightforward toolbars.
Citrix has clearly put its years of remote-desktop experience to work in creating a simple, easy-to-navigate app. The controls aren't especially clever--they're just basic, solid, and intuitive. The tap-down menu at the top of the screen gives you obvious, well-labeled buttons that let you easily disconnect from the remote host, access a keyboard, switch to arrow keys (to move your cursor accurately in a text field), or open the Preferences panel. All plans also include remote printing, screen blanking, and file transfers. Read more
