Sharing is Caring
  • Petro

    Crystall ball mobile worth considering (www.crystalballmobile.com) ; very efficient, very low bandwidth.

  • Kade

    Also TeamViewer, it’s free for non-commercial use and it works insanely well. Requires install on PC as well as phone, but extremely easy. http://www.teamviewer.com

    • Vader

      TeamViewer’s demo is free… and it last only 5 minutes.

      • Aro

        Don’t mislead people. TeamViever is completely free for non-commercial use (as stated earlier). I have no idea what you have tried but I’m using it a lot and haven’t paid anything.

  • José

    Logmein and Teamviewer are my preferred choices, as my controlled computers are almost always behind a firewall and with dynamic IPs. These two can handle both conditions transparently.
    When it comes to the Android app, Logmein is US$29.99 and Teamviewer is FREE (for non-commercial purposes). Also, Teamviewer needs no installation on the host, just running a standalone executable.
    Therefore, Teamviewer is my choice now.

  • cat

    I wish somebody would actually review these apps rather than merely list them. I bought logmein and it is perhaps the clunkiest application I have ever paid for on any machine, I’m desperate for an alternative that’s actually functionally useable. I have used gotomypc for ages and they said they’d have an android tablet app out in 2011, not going to happen, maybe ever, since I get blank stares from tech support over there when I ask for a ballpark release date for it. It’s winter here in the mountains, I sure would be happy to pay for a good quality remote access solution on my xoom.

    • Ken

      splashtop works really nicely for me.

  • trustme

    Splashtop – If you want the fastest video refresh and great audio streaming, this remote desktop is by *far* the fastest that i’ve seen and i’ve tried most listed on this page. It makes VNC look absolutely pathetic. You can watch movies or play games off your computer if your phone is fast enough. I do with epic 4g.

    ..now if i could only find a bluetooth mouse to control the mouse cursor!

  • Jett Black

    I like 2X RDP a lot. It works very well on phone and tablet and connects to the regular Windows RDP server, so don’t have to install anything else on the server machine.

  • iceman

    I agree with cat – some proper reviews would be very welcome. For most of these products there’s no information about whether they support RDP options like TLS, NLA or FIPS-compliant encryption.

  • hisham hassan bakr

    I recommend All in one Remote. You can control any app ever !
    it supports wifi, bluetooth, windows, linux, mac


    • Chris Parsons

      And, by amazing coincidence, you just happen to be selling it!

      • Hisham Bakr

        Not because I am selling it. It is free. did you try it first before saying your openion?

  • anil

    Hi friendz,

    I want to access my table from my PC or phone, is it possible ? if so please let me know.

    • Chris Mc.

      anil, why would you want to access your table? are you hungry?

  • Patrick Moore

    When i was really stuck with this problem but one of my friend in iConnect RxPc who help me out. As i know so much remote application free which not so much useful. Thank You very much iCOnnect RxPc .


  • Paul

    2X rdp client is the fastest an very easy to use.
    They also offer a full server package [optional] which includes much more features than all the rest put together worth checking it out (www.2x.com)
    More to this the client is absolutely free.
    They also have Windows, Linux, MAC, iPad an iPhone client… all free

  • simon

    Any app that can be access using my home computer? Which means access from my computer to tablet?


  • The TeamViewer mobile client also supposed pinch-to-zoom to help us navigate on a small screen.

  • G

    I am looking for a product that allows for incoming sessions to be accepted on android devices – having significant issues identifying one.TeamViewer works FROM android but not too Android. I need to support my techns while being mobile myself.

  • alex

    Definitely Splashtop should be highly recommended.

    • Jai

      Splashtop is a nice desktop apps. I recommend this too.

  • I liked the TeamViewer mobile client. You can have access to your laptop and desktop anywhere you want with this app.

  • Julie Shutters

    I just recently installed splashtop from comments that i had seen that it worked so well… and that is was free… I can access the PC from my tablet when i am logged into the same wireless network while i am at work (which is pointless since when i am at work why would i need access??) but when i go home and try to work thru the app on my PC i always get connection failed.. Every time. It only worked once the first day that i installed and has not worked since. I am over not being able to get answers. I also do not care that i have to pay for a program as long as it works. I am uninstalling and moving on. Support or lack of is awful. And on top of that they do not speak or type english.

  • Ralph

    I just tried what hisham hassan bakr said, installed All-In-One Remote and created my first custom Remote GUI.
    NO, this is NOT an RDP client but rather a very nicely configurable remote control in which you can create your own buttons, even with color bitmaps, and remote-control your PC by emulating mouse movement and/or keyboard presses, including Alt/Shift/Ctrl modifiers etc.
    It works both over Wireless LAN and Bluetooth, and I think it’s great!
    And free!

  • austin

    Hisham isn’t selling it as he said, but he is the developer!

  • Salaxzar

    Cool collection of android apps here. I think Flash Remote could be very useful. The rest are great.

  • Eugene

    This is also good.
    The software works well, Ammyy Admin doesn’t require installation or specific config, works behind gateways NAT as well as within one LAN.

  • Prabha

    PC Remote Controller is the one android remote desktop app which i have used many times and it works great.

  • Really these apps are nice. I have used most of the apps added in the collection.

  • koshchey

    Splashtop free only works over the same network, if you want to connect through internet, you`ll have to pay, although is a very nice app. To connect using Rdp i use Freerdp, works great.

  • Patrick Moore

    Still if you are not getting proper solutions then please use Teamviewer or Gotomeeting or Gotomypc accessing the your desktop or laptop..
    Thank You
