I just received a request for recommendation of a good RDP or Remote Desktop control app on Android phones & tablets.
So What Does STYLEZ Think?
My first recommendation is 2X Client RDP/Remote Desktop!
It works on Android 1.6-4.0. I use it on my 4.3" touchscreen and it works AWESOME! It has great reviews on tablets too. It's free and uses true RDP (only problem there is only Pro or Ultimate versions of XP & Vista allow RDP, I think all versions of 7 allow it). And it works even better than Wyse PocketCloud (which is $25). And I see they just introduced an AMAZING new features... Published Apps! If you don't know what that is, think VMware ThinApp meets Android! You can run apps from a machine in your network as if they were natively running on your phone or tablet!
My second choice would be TeamViewer for Remote Control.
This app is also FREE! It runs on Android 1.6 and up (not sure if it has Android 4.0 support yet, but if not, I'm sure it's coming). It doesn't use true RDP, it uses a Host/Viewer (or Host only) service app on the desktop (which is great for people running Home versions of XP & Vista). It's an AMAZING app that works internally and externally when you're on the road, with NO router changes. I think you have to change a setting in the server portion of the software combo to allow internal network connections. But otherwise it works GREAT! I use it on friends and family PCs so that I can assist them remotely!
