    No competition - Splashtop.


    There's a free, limited viewing time, version too, so you can try it out with no risk.

    Many reviews of this app in the Forum, so have a look and see what other Members think too.

    It's a great program - there's an app for the iPad and a (free) app for the PC or Mac. It works on both your local network and from outside too. No complex port configuration settings on your router either. You just provide both apps with your gmail address and it does the rest by magic....

    Very fast too, if you have a good WiFi network...

    Splash top has a great feature where it links to your gmail and allows you to connect to your computer even when it isn't on your wifi!

    Ok I've got splashtop now and I must say it's impressive.

    One thing I'd like advice on however;

    Is there any way of improving the video quality ?

    I tried YouTube on my iPad and it was as smooth as I'd like it to be.

    The primary reason I got splashtop was to watch streamed sports on my iPad.

    Thanks again.

    Can it be improved in any way ?

    I'm not very technologically minded !

    Only way I can think of is faster Internet on both ends or a faster computer

    So the only way to use this software is to give your personal information to the Google Overlords ?
