    Hi!
    I am looking for an app, that runs RDP (remote desktop) on a pc, and via the RDP app can use the iPad camera.
    That is I have my pc screen on the iPad, and I need to take picture and scan barcode via the iPad camera. I have searched but not found any. Has anyone here suggestions?
    Best regards

    I'm sorry to say that RDP apps don't work that way. They are designed to access the computer via the iPad, not access the iPad from the computer. While the iPad is running the RDP app and actively accessing the computer, there is no way to take pictures and scan barcodes with the iPad. Sorry.

    On a side note - please remember that this is an international forum. Giving only 24-hours for someone to read your post (and respond if they have an answer) is not realistic. Please wait a minimum of 48 hours for a response before you "bump" your existing thread that has gotten no responses (please don't start a new one).

    Therefore, I deleted your other thread you started today on this same topic. Making more than one post not only fragments the conversation and makes it hard to follow - it's against the forum rules. Please keep any follow-ups, discussion or updates on this topic to this thread; do not start another. Thanks for your understanding.
