I don't often leave reviews...
But when I do, it's because this app is one of the best pieces of software i have ever used, simple UI yet powerful enough to remote play RuneScape, League of legends, and even Skyrim without lag over my 20Mbps internet. It's many various settings and options allow me to have audio running though my Computer, my iPhone, or both simultaneously. The screen shows beautifully, even going from my HD res Computer to my small iPhone screen. No latency or Graphic/Audio skipping even my Computers iTunes can be used (I used it as an audio test) I can stream music from iTunes Radio to my Computer to my iPhone without any noticeable drop in performance. I have tried (and bought) many Remote Desktop programs before but this is the best; in terms of both power and simplicity. I can even set it to remember my connection for as long as I like when I am away from the app. (I am still connected and playing audio while I type this). Could not be more impressed with this app.
It is noteworthy that you cannot Remote Desktop over the internet (that is; on a different network than your Computer or over 3G) unless you subscribe to the anywhere package which costs monthly or annually, however the average user would likely not use this feature anyways.
This is some awesome software! Very nice! Works almost perfectly on my phone when operating my computer.
"Almost" being the operative word in that sentence; there are certain games that are completely unplayable on this app (maybe a limitation of any Apple tablet/phone) and there are times the app outright crashes during the stream. I'm never sure why, but there's got to be a reason for that.
Anyway, if you're not up to doing some heavy-duty gaming, from a distance, this is probably the ideal app for you, if you're running iPhone 5s. I don't know how this runs on iPad or any other Apple device besides my phone. That said, I am interested in seeing how this product performs on other platforms it is available on, when I have access to those platforms.
Admittedly I used logmein by default primarily because you could transfer files between my computer and idevice. But after they shunned a lot of users I decided I am not going to pay a fee for something I already bought. Now I do have splash top 2 unlimited because I bought the original splash top back in the day.
Man I should of went back to splash top years ago, so much better than logmein. Though I do miss the file transferring i rarely used it. If I do need to transfer files I'll use Dropbox.
Maybe splash top could integrate Dropbox to be seamless file transferring or something.
