Sometimes, you may want to access your desktop PC or Mac while you are away from your desk. Either at home or in the office, remote computer access is a convenient way to get some work done on the road as if your computer is right in front of you!
And of course, for portability, nothing beats remote access right on your tablet and phone. We've tried a few apps out there for iOS and Android, but the best and easiest way to setup your Mac or PC for remote access so far is Splashtop Personal.
Instead of configuring IP addresses, access codes, and network permissions, setting up Splashtop Personal is really simple. Just download and install the free Splashtop Streamer software on your computer, get the app for either iPad or Android, create a Splashtop account then log into both target devices for instant remote access.
The Splashtop Personal app for iOS or Android normally costs $20 but check for occasional special discounts that slash the price to $10 or even less.
Splashtop’s remote access service is free over a local Wi-FI network. This works great for those times you want quick access to your main desktop computer and files on your home network but getting off your bed is the furthest thing from your mind.
Even better, for remote access anywhere, even outside your home, they offer a $16.99/year Anywhere Access subscription pack. For those moments when you need to access your computer in a pinch, Splashtop Personal can really be a life-saver.
