    PocketCloud is both a VNC and RDP client and works with the iPhone and iPad (and touch of course). I don't really use it for RDP much, as I prefer iTap RDP for that. But it PocketCloud is good enough to do both if you only wanted one app.

    I use the Pro version which is 14.99. There was no "free" version when I got it, but there is now. I'm not sure of the difference between free and pro but if I was trying it just now I would start with the free version. Here is an iTunes to it:
    Wyse PocketCloud RDP / VNC (Remote Desktop) for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    Yep. Usually, it is rebooted from a Windows update but it takes LogMeIn to get everything up and running (including iTunes so media can be shared on my iPad). After that, I don't have much use for LMI. Sometimes Splashtop acts flacky and LMI is then helpful to get it working again.

    The free version of Pocketcloud allows only one connection.

    I had some trouble with my xp.pro laptop and Pocketcloud. I couldn't get RDP to work... had to install tightVNC in order for it to have connectivity. Haven't figured that out yet.

    Here's a comparison of the free and pro versions. Scroll down and click the compare tab.

    Is there a way for Pocketcloud to match up to the iPad's resolution (more like SplashTop), what I am seeing is the Windows taskbar about an inch away from the bottom of the screen in landscape? I like the controls, particularly the precision of the "mouse."

    Doesn't appear to be free anymore. The 1-connection version os 99cents. Not bad.

    That's odd, I just downloaded to two devices this morning and it was free then.

    don't buy splashtop desktop remote

    FYI- Splashtop desktop remote is in fact too good to be true - The app does not connect your ipad to your mac once you leave your local network which is the only reason to buy a remote login app in the first place

    To further qualify your "don't buy" recommendation:

    If you have a mac, you can only use your local network "for now". However, windows computers can be found across networks (via a google email accounts).

    To their credit Splashtop does state that remote access via the Internet is Windows only for now. I suppose that they could have made that aspect more visible...
