Best App for Desktop Remote Access



Jump Right In: Choose a computer to connect to, and Jaadu teleports you in with a nifty blue spinning wormhole effect that reveals your desktop. Pinch to zoom in and out, and use the touchscreen to move the cursor around the screen, tapping to click.

Remote Possibility: Browse files and use your computer just like you would if you were sitting in front of it. Tap the keyboard icon to type email or do some remote word-processing. Control your desktop in either landscape or portrait view.

Jaadu VNC

Version reviewed: 2.0.1

Jaadu puts your entire desktop on your iPhone or iPod Touch, working your computer when it's on the same WiFi network—or across the Internet, with a bit of network know-how. After some modest setup on your computer (it's a snap on Macs, slightly more involved on PCs), you can do anything from your iPhone that you could at your keyboard. It's pricey, but it buys complete access to your computer from anywhere in the world.
