    I see splashtop app is on sale. Is it as good as the reviews are saying about it for a remote access to your desktop?

    Really? I have it and rarely use it. Tell me again why I should go back and explore it knowing my school background.

    I leave my flash drive in my desktop, so when I am out in the field I always have access to my desktop and all client files, info and reports that are on that flash drive. Also If I need to access my computer for anything ~ it is sweet. And I always do.

    Just last night I was on the couch on my ipad and wanted to change my avatar ( yes, again! ) and I did it through ST! Keep in mind when I say I use it more than any other app ~ I only have like 15 apps IF that, and that includes all my JB ones, of TWO. lol!

    So if I told you I have 245 apps on mine, you would be astounded, right? Does this mean you have to leave your laptop on all day then? My iPad original doesn't have 3G so it would be my iPhone 4 that would be accessed. I have to use glasses so I'm wondering if I could SEE the small screen. I've tried using the wi-fi in our school but it is sketchy at best.

    My desktop is always on as we rarely turn it off. Once, though, my daughter was charging her ipod and took OUT my flash drive. Don't know why when there are numerous slots ~ so here I was out in the field and had to access a client's meds and low and behold, no flash drive was in there!

    ST can do so much, Hayle ~ I barely touch the surface, I'm sure. 245 ​apps? Seriously? Wow!

    Yes, I know, appaholic I am. Each time I try to delete them I decide that i will need it once they are gone. Although if it is in the way of important music, it's gone except my favourites. How is that new Mac of yours shaping up?

    I am so happy I found this thread.

    I've been having problems with Splashtop since I downloaded it. I can finally get it to work from home, but not from work where I need it, so I archived it in iTunes and went back to using Logmein.

    I was wondering if it's worth it to switch back and try again: Logmein is dependable but as slow as molasses. I have to leave key folders open on my desktop before leaving home to reduce the time it takes to access important information.

    What's it like to open programs, folders and files using Splashtop from a distance as compared to opening them on a computer?

    If it's slow but not all that bad, I would seriously consider trying a few ideas to solve my log in problems and try using it again.

    Did you enter your gmail info into the pc streamer program & iPad app....which allows you to find your pc from anywhere in the world.

    Thank you for your help. Yes I did.

    Since my last post, I experimented with the energy settings in the system preferences folder of my laptop and that seems to have solved the initial problem concerning the ability of the iPad to find my computer remotely. I think that once I enter my security code everything should be alright. (I don't have it memorized and so I can't log in today.)
