    Hello everyone!

    Please answer as soon as possible because I'm impulsive when it comes to buying apps!

    Ok I found this one which is featured on the app store. Is this the best for what I'm looking for? Any other recommendations? Perhaps better and cheaper before I spend $16. Thank you !

    Please include your own App Store link in the future. ;)

    I've used iTeleport with my Mac but haven't tried it with a Windows machine. It's a bit pricey: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/iteleport-vnc/id286470485?mt=8

    Splashtop is another good app that is currently on sale right now: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/splashtop-remote-desktop-for/id382509315?mt=8

    Here's another vote for iTeleport. I've been using it for a few years (Windows and Mac) and I think it's the best one out there. But if you want to save some money, I agree with Kadelic's recommendation for Splashtop, which has audio as well as video.

    LogMeIn works quite well and the main front end is free for basic remote desktop stuff

    I also upgraded to ignition when it went on sale. Works well especially on wifi. 3G is a bit slow.

    Mocha VNC. It's free and it works great.

    The only problem with Mocha VNC is that there are a few limitations that you don't realize until you use a different version.
    I grabbed iTeleport back when it was called JaduVNC, and got it for 4.99. I had a desktop up all the time that I used to access for files and such. It only ever failed me when i was out of the country and couldn't access the PC- connection failed. But I have been in Florida and remoted into my sister's desktop in Athens, GA, and fixed her PC without problems.

    My advice is to weigh exactly what you are looking to do versus cost. If you don't need much, then a cheaper version is always a easy decision. But if you want full functionality, you're going to have to pay for it.
