Yep - that's the message I had gleaned! :-(
I am waiting for such app by which I could control my iPad from my Desktop. If you have any authentic information, please share it with me. Thank you
It sounds like you are going to be waiting for a while since Apple has designed the operating system to not allow this to happen. It sounds like jailbreaking is the only way to allow an app to have the controls that allow this to happen. This is an idiotic choice on Apples part, I know I know security yadda yadda yadda........ Funny thing, I've been doing it on PCs and mobile devices for 20 years without incident, but Apple can't build in a setting that allows you a secure way to remote access.
Isn't that counter-productive?Quote:

1. You can view the PC screen on the iPad using may different Apps available from the App store such as Air Display (mirroring) or iTap VNC (remote desktop) depending on your needs.
2. You can view the iPad screen on a Mac using an AirPlay solution such as "Reflection" for OSX - reflectionapp.com is the website. Don't know if there is a Windows equivalent or not. Reflection works well, but it is not full resolution mirroring on iPad3, so prepare for some fuzzy disappointment.
3. You can only control the iPad from a PC if you are jailbroken, using a VNC Client from Cydia such as Veency. It's unlikely Apple will ever change their stance on this, so jailbreaking is the only way. Veency works perfectly well on jailbroken IOS 5.1.1 and on iPad3 in case anyone is interested.
Hope that clarifies.
I'll leave the thread open in case anyone has questions related to the topic.
Remote administration, IT support and all the other reasons people have been using VNC, Remote Access, Logmein and the like for the last 20 years. Even if you don't see it, that hardly qualifies as counter productive.
