The iPhone can carry out many of the same tasks as a PC or Mac, but sometimes you’ll need to check-in with your desktop to pick up some files or to use certain programs. Pocket Cloud Remote allows you to do just that. It lets you log in remotely to your computer, view its screen on you iPhone and control the mouse pointer via your phone’s touchscreen.
Using the app is very straightforward as you can scroll around your computer’s desktop just by swiping your finger around the screen. A tap with two fingers calls up the mouse pointer, while tapping with three fingers launches a virtual onscreen keyboard. The software also seems to be very stable and uses a very small amount of bandwidth.
Wyse Pocket Cloud Remote is an excellent option if you need to be able to control your PC or Mac from afar.
