    Hey guys. I'm getting a 2011 iMac with an iPad 2 in a week for university next year. I want a remote desktop app but can't decide between iteleport, logmeinignition, and jump desktop. Here are my requirements:

    No monthly fee
    Must be compatible with the apple Bluetooth keyboard
    Must work over wifi and 3G
    Must be fast, Probably going to watch hulu on the iPad
    Be mac and windows compatible
    Be able to turn on my iMac from my iPad or wake it from sleep
    Must have sound ~ I am aware jump only has sound in windows so is it possible to log in my bootcamp partition from my iPad in jump?

    What I want it be able to do is give me the closest experience to a laptop as possible, so speed is important.

    Also, a couple questions:

    1. Is it possible to use a remote desktop app without having the iMac's screen on?

    2. Is it possible to boot up/wake the iMac from sleep from the iPad over internet?

    Thank you!

    Hey I would absolutely recommend Splastop! $.99 and no monthly or annual subscription. Very fluent, quick and NO lag. Can be used on separate networks with a bit of configuration via your router being accessed by the stationary computer of choice. This supports Mac & Windows OS's. Hope this helps

    Splashtop for me too. Just can't be beat - and the remote access feature is a breeze.

    No competition....

    I tried Splashtop and couldn't get it to work. I've been away from computers in the work place so long that I have lost what little knowledge I had which wasn't much. I used to be a pretty intuitive user, but now I need specific, step-by-step instructions.

    I like the idea of Splashtop.

    However, I've never been able to figure out - how to login to a PC that's "sleeping"? If I have to log in, Splashtop will not connect to the computer.

    Is there any way around this?

    Thanks.

    Hi...if it helps I wrote a pretty detailed tutorial here about a month ago on configuring your router to work with splashtop on remote networks. A similar tutorial can be found on the spashtop website - but its easy and pretty much 100% relaiable unlike than the gmail login.

    Also, get to your device settings and allowing your computer to wake on LAN (meaning network activity can bring the computer out of sleep mode.) In Windows 7 this is in the network card device settings. But on Mac...I'm not sure...may be in the power management settings?

    Where is your tutorial? I looked at the website, but did not find anything that applied to my router. It is a Cisco.

    Do you have the desktop streamer on the desktop and app on the Ipad?
    Are you trying to use it from home network of the desktop or away from home of it?
    Just trying to find how far you got before getting stuck.
