The tablet PC is a mobile device that has multiplied in popularity so fast it has become a must for the working class. A lot of people are already willing to let go of their cash for iPads because of the convenience and ease of use they offer. Also, the mobility that they offer is something that can complement the lifestyle of modern office people.
Another great thing about tablet PCs is that you can connect them to your network, install some apps that would allow you to get remote access to your home or office desktop PC. This would really allow you to freely move anywhere without having to worry about not being able to access important files from your remote computer. Tablet PC owners can now enjoy telecommuting, not having to work at their desks all the time because they can access their work computers whether at home or even on vacation.
If you have a tablet PC and would like to have access to your work PC anywhere, here are some of the apps and programs that you might want to check out.
1# LogMeIn (Free)
This free program can be enjoyed through your iOS device only. Unfortunately, a free version has not yet been made for the Android platform. This app provides remote access and control for any number of PCs that you wish. This is a great way to access your files at home or at work when you are on the road. You can do a lot of things with it like look up information, access files and it can even help you shut down your PC when you need to. You are given full access to your PC as if you were sitting right in front of it. This app is perfect for those who are always on the road to take care of business but cannot tag along heavy laptops and prefer to bring their tablet PC instead.
2# Xtralogic Remote Desktop Client for Android
This app also allows you full access to your PC or any Android-based device. Once you are connected, you are given full access over the mouse and keyboard while showing what is happening on your remote computer screen. If you are an iPad user and would need one reason to switch and sell your iPad for an Android, this app could very well be it.
3# Remote RDP
RDP comes in both lite (free) and paid ($5.99) versions. This app, available to both iOS and Android users, can help you control your PC wherever you are. Some of this app’s features include copy/paste info between tablet and remote PC, access to your SD card to be used by the remote PC, as well as playing music.
These are just some of the many programs you can try to connect your tablet PC to your home or office desktop/laptop. You can save on a lot of time, money and effort by using these apps. You can then seriously think of exchanging your cash for iPad if you have these apps, not to mention spending more quality time with things outside work.
