Splashtop Gets a Makeover

Back in February, we told you about Splashtop – a mobile app that gives you access to your computer when you’re on the go. Splashtop just released an update that demands a second look at this helpful, easy to use app.

If you’ve used Spashtop before, you’re already familiar with its features. But with the recent update, there are a host of improvements that make the app more intuitive, more secure, and more reliable. The update takes advantage of the new iPad retina display, resulting in a sharper, brighter image. The enhanced user controls also contribute to a more user-friendly interface. But the most impressive aspect of the update is the addition of XDisplay.

XDisplay lets you use your iPad as a wireless second monitor for your computer. It features full audio and video support, auto orientation for landscape and portrait viewing, a virtual on-screen keyboard, and much more.

The new update currently works with Windows 7, Vista, XP, and MAC OS X10.6+.

For more information about Splashtop, please call your local Friendly Computers or send your questions to sweettips@friendlycomputers.com. Don’t forget to ask for your coupon for a free in-shop diagnostic at participating locations. And be sure to ask about all of the computer repair services available in your area.
