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+.

Splashtop Remote Desktop

This week’s spotlight falls on the Splashtop Remote Desktop app.

Splashtop is an amazing app that gives you complete access to your PC or Mac from anywhere. The handy app incorporates a series of intuitive, user-friendly gestures that allows you to control your PC or MAC with the swipe of your finger. Splashtop makes it easy to use software on your computer that isn’t readily available for iOS and Android powered devices. What sets this app apart from its competitors is it’s unique ability to stream video and audio to your mobile device. From streaming flash videos and playing games on Facebook to viewing Powerpoint presentations to listening to music in any format, Splashtop makes it all possible.

Available in the iTunes App Store and the Android Market.
