PocketCloud Remote Desktop - RDP / VNC app review: potent productivity

Reviews

Introduction

If you’re in the market for an app that will allow you to remotely access and transfer files to and from your desktop computer with full system controls on your iPhone and iPad then you might like to consider PocketCloud Remote Desktop - RDP / VNC.

I’ve seen a few examples of apps that offer remote desktop control but I really like the way this one also incorporates file transferring capabilities. You’re getting a great end-to-end solution here for controlling your computer, streaming your media, and moving your files around.

Extensive Desktop File Management

Those of you in need of a utility that allows easy remote access of your desktop computer would do well to check out this one as it allows you to very quickly connect to your computer and then begin performing all of the usual tasks you’d be able to do from your workstation.

You can stream media from your computer or transfer it directly onto your device, or alternatively you’ll be able to use 2GB of free cloud storage with Cloudbin so you can move your files with a little added freedom.

Stream Media from Your Computer

PocketCloud Remote Desktop - RDP / VNC also supports gesture-based mouse controls for clicking, double clicking, and so on, and it is fully compatible with both Windows computers and Macs.

Another very smart feature of this app allows you to use video out compatibility to stream your videos from your computer directly into an external projector via your iOS device; how clever is that!
