    I have been trying out a lot of the remote desktop apps and found this really cool one its called Splashtop,It allowed me to remote to my windows XP machine and as long as I was in the same room I could actually use my mouse on my iPad I posted the video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3W9Bb-n9Z3g,For all you guys that still need to use windows:)

    Do you have the commercial version or the free versions? Curious as to how it might compare with logmein? Perhaps you could tell us which of the other remote "DT's" you have tried and how it is superior in your view? Thanks

    I also have the paid version of Logmein and used it for over a year and really enjoyed using it.Until I found Spashtop and I believe I only paid 4.99 for it,I found it runs smother than Logmein Just the whole usability is much better for me.And it also has 5 out of 5 rating.

    You guys are killing me. I'm using PocketCloud (free) and trying to decide what's the best system ot there. I don't mind paying but would love to see a side by side of the differences between the apps. Does that exist anywhere?
    Any help &/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I have tried a few remote apps

    The one part where Splashtop stands out, is that touch is converted directly, I.e. the mouse courser moves to where you press. With other remote apps, such as Teamviewer, you have to move the mouse courser around, which makes it a lot more difficult to use.

    Using Spashtop here as it does all I want. Just found it the easiest to use with win7 & osx.

    Splashtop gets my vote. A clear winner.

    But these don't work outside your home network, like LogMeIn
