Splashtop Remote Desktop (2012) Review

Splashtop Remote Desktop (2012) Review

If the ability to play movies and listen to music on your remote desktop is top priority, Splashtop Remote Desktop is your best bet.

4.5 stars
(4.5 out of 5)

While remote access apps for tablets are primarily used to check PowerPoint presentations or Word docs, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to use them to have a little fun, too. In addition to productivity apps, Splashtop Remote Desktop’s specialty is its ability to stream high-quality video and audio. But with a starting price of $4.99 ($6.99 on Android Honeycomb tablets), is it worth this extra functionality?
