Why toil at your desk this summer? The aptly named Splashtop 2 frees you to work by the pool or some other shimmering body of water. This remote-control app lets you use your iPad to operate a Mac or Windows PC. It connects devices across the Internet (via the optional Anywhere Access Pack), has a simple authentication scheme, and is optimized for the new iPad's Retina display.
Splashtop 2 costs $2 for a limited time in the iTunes App Store, and $10 thereafter. The Anywhere Access Pack, an in-app purchase, is $1 per month or $10 per year.
