I bought this app for 99 cents when it was on sale a while ago haven't had a chance to use it yet. And just bought another desktop control app tonight.

Note that to use this app, you must also install Splashtop Streamer on your home computer; this can be downloaded free from Splashtop's website. A dual-core CPU is strongly recommended for the best performance. Splashtop Remote Desktop works only devices running Android OS 2.2 or higher. It supports all versions of Windows 7, Vista, and XP, including Home Premium. Mac users must have at least Snow Leopard (10.6).

Just downloaded and it works like a charm! I've heard about these apps but never actually tried one out. I think this could be very handy to use on like a tablet during class fantastic app! Obviously though the comp has to be running for this to work so... it kinda is limited to desktops only.

I have the webOS version for my TouchPad and I like it a lot. I can watch standard def. video over it and it supports dual monitors.

Wish it was the HD version :(

I have the Android and iOS versions. I use it on my iPad ofter and it works well. Displays video and streams audio great. I have not really tested it on my Android phone due to screen size.

I've got this on my TouchPad and it works really well. Streaming audio and video come out with minimal chop, and I'm pleased to see similar performance on my Android phone. It was a bargain at $4.99, free is even better.

Got it myself for $4.99. Just love the program.

I use LogMeIn on my iPhone (it is free) and it works great, was looking for an Android alternative and I will have to get this.

Any idea if this will work on a Kindle Fire?

I absolutely love this app. Have been using it on my HP Touchpad in WebOS for months, now I have an android version so I don't even have to boot into WebOS anymore! WOOHOO! Works great on my Moto RAZR too.

@sumduud: You could also try TeamViewer.

vote-for5vote-against

How well does this stack up against TeamViewer? I use TeamViewer all the time, which is free for personal use. It has an Android and iOS version as well. Additionally it has full encryption.

I have read that Splashtop doesn't have any encryption. That is how they can stream video, I believe. I haven't tried streaming vid on TeamViewer, though.

Just in case, no I do not work for TeamViewer. Just a user looking for other TeamViewer users that have experience with both of these products to compare/contrast. Of course, I went ahead and "bought" this since it's free, just need to know if I should be switching over to it.

@sumduud: According to Amazon, it will work on my son's Kindle Fire, :)

I was using Teamviewer on my Kindle Fire until this morning when this was made available for free. So far I like Splashtop much more. Video plays flawlessly (couldn't get it working on Teamviewer) and the interface is better in my opinion.

The only thing I found slightly annoying, is that it mutes sound on the PC, and plays it through the tablet speakers, which can be a hassle when just using it as a remote, but its easy enough to unmute, or just close the app.

I bought this for $4.99 the other day from the Amazon appstore, and I thoroughly love it. It allows me to connect my iphone, kindle fire, netbook and laptops to my main server and do all my intensive 3D and Graphics work from any of those devices. My only gripes are that the controls don't convert well from PC to tablet, that the screen resolution does not try and match my current devices screen size, and that I can't run anything in true full screen mode. Computers also have a nasty habit of running everything in fullscreen instead of widescreen unless zoomed. But it does allow me to have fast interaction with programs on my larger computer that would never have run on my smaller machines before.

4 out of 5 stars. - Worth the money for work related tasks, Not so great for most games however.

I bought this one (and the HD version) a while back for use on my android devices. It is a great program once you get it set up (easy) and get used to the controls (not as easy). I use mine over the internet, not just on the local WiFi connection. I was amazed at the responsiveness. I don't play games or watch videos over it, so I can't speak to that. For jumping onto my home pc and doing some quick surfing (to avoid using the filtered work network) it is more than perfect. It's worth paying money for. That goes double for the HD version.

SWTOR crew skills! New interest in RDP from gamers...

Really? I JUST bought this last night for $4.99. I've got it on my HP TouchPad and I love it. Works just as well on my Android tablet. I was previously using Wyse Pocketcloud, and this beats it by a mile.

BTW the full app is still free from GetJar...
