Being in IT and working in an all Windows shop I would say that remote desktop is the number one used app on my PC. VNC is used a lot as well for connecting to PC’s but mostly I’m all about managing my servers using remote desktop. Most of that is done from VisionApp’s remote desktop software (but that’s for a different post). So, on my Asus Transformer Prime tablet (which I love by the way) one of the first things I searched for in the market place was a remote desktop client. I tried out a few but settled on Wyse Technology’s PocketCloud. Wyse has a number of products from thin clients to remote desktop clients and more.
I typically go with free apps because I don’t have an abundance of money and because I like to hop around OS platforms on the Tablet side so when I originally saw the $14.99 price tag I skipped it over. They do have a free version that doesn’t let you add more than one pre-configured remote desktop connection and does work well. But, I like to be able to pull out the tablet and quickly connect to whichever server I need to do some work on. I had used PocketCloud on the iPad as well and liked it there as well. The recent update added several useful features and it’s well worth taking a look at.
