    Just got my ipad and will use it for business by connecting to my PC + Windows. Currently using Logmein which is not too bad but a little jumpy and does not use all of the ipad features. Any recommendations for other remote desktop programs? Are there any ipad apps that will make a connection to Windows Explorer?

    Most people say they are all comparable and not just because all these apps are so expensive, nobody wants to buy more than one to compare :D

    Splashtop FTW. The BEST remote app I have ever used. And, it's only 1.99. There's a free version out too. Works just like the pro version but only for 5 minutes at a time.

    Jump Desktop

    You might also want to check out Jump Desktop. It's a native RDP and VNC client for the iPad/ iPhone. You can set it up using an IP address or you can also use just your Gmail address for automatic setup so that you can easily connect to your PC even when you're away from home (no port forwarding or networking knowledge necessary if you use this).

    Disclaimer: I work for Jump Desktop. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

    i have two computers that I want remote access to: one mac and one PC. Do I have to purchase two copies of the program?

    I'm really not too computer savvy and splashtop sounds great, great price but sounds like its hard to install.

    You only need to purchase the app once and you can use it to control as many computers as you want.

    And do not forget:
    Jump Desktop is a native RDP client (which has to be installed _only_ on your Ipad, and will use the normal RDP protocoll of Windows!)

    Splashtop is a single server/client application (which needs to be installed on the PC you would like to connect, and on the Ipad)

    (That was my problem, I didn't read carefully the discription of Splashdot, now I need to buy a RDP client, which support Windows Server 2003, but they are really expensive for now. I have some on "my wish list", like Jump Desktop and iTap RDP)

    Also remember splashtop also provides faster than rdp/vnc speeds for both windows and mac and plays back audio and video.

    I have been using Pocket Cloud for my RDP needs and it works great. It will also do VNC and VMware.
    For Windows Explorer type connection to a file server, I found File Browser to work good. It retains the Windows credentials for folders.
