Convenient Access for Your Personal Computer

There are a plethora of remote PC solutions available in the market nowadays. Whether you need one to easily monitor your business or you simply need convenient access for your personal computer, you can surely find one that suits your needs. Splashtop Personal is a remote access software that lets you control your personal computer in using your tablet or smartphone. Used on your local home network, this app gives you complete access to your desktop even while in the comfort of your couch or bedroom. 

Easy Setup

One of the things users will love about the Splashtop Personal app is its simple setup. The app is so easy to install and configure that you can start accessing your home desktop in less than five minutes. Setting up takes three simple steps. First, you need to download the app to the computer that you wish to access remotely. Second, you will have to install the streamer app to the device you want to use as the remote.  Finally, you will need to create a Splashtop Personal account and log in on both devices. Do all that, and you’re set.  

Splashtop Personal is completely free. That is if you only need to access your personal computer while at home. If you wish to still connect to your desktop even while away, you will need to subscribe to their monthly or yearly Access Anywhere pack.  

High-Performance Remote Access

Like the popular third-party remote access program TeamViewer, Splashtop Personal lets you access all the files in your computer. Not only will the app let you open files in your desktop’s local library, but it can also give you full control on your installed apps. That’s right. By accessing your computer using the Splashtop Personal app, you can open your emails even in the comfort of your bed. You can also browse the web using your desktop browser with full Flash and Java support. For added convenience, the app also lets you view and edit Microsoft Office and PDF files. 

If you are an avid gamer and you wish to play your PC games without hunkering in front of your computer, you may do so using the Splashtop Personal app. Yes, you read it right. This remote access software lets you play graphic-intensive computer games in your tablet or mobile phones. With its high-performance streaming technology, you can play even your interactive 3D games

Furthermore, Splashtop Personal is the only app that offers high-quality audio and video streaming in real-time. In fact, this is the app’s shining feature. While most remote desktop solutions, especially over the internet, offers choppy and low-quality visuals (typically with no audio), Splashtop Personal provides you with great streaming quality. On a high-speed connection, you can even watch a movie from the remote device with a little-to-no noticeable issue. 

Access Everything

To sum it up, Splashtop Personal is a handy application to have if you want to access your personal computer anywhere in your home. This software gives you full control of all your files and apps. More, it allows you to freely access up to five home computers. However, users must note that the app is for personal use only. If you need remote control access for your business computers, you will need to subscribe to the app's business access pack.
