Wouldn't it be handy to be able to access your office or home PC from your iPad? That's the reason to have Jump Desktop
($9.99), a Windows Remote Desktop (RDP) client. Jump Desktop lets you connect to a PC running various version of Windows 7, Vista, XP, Server, and 2000 -- pretty much all versions except Home and Starter editions.
You use your Google account to log into your PC-which means you can use one login to access and manage all of your PCs-or you can use a host name and IP address for each PC if you prefer. Windows desktops are displayed on the iPad at the device's full resolution, and color depth can be reduced to 8 or 15 bits to reduce bandwidth requirements. Jump Desktop supports left and right mouse clicks and scrolling, as well as function and modifier keys on its built-in soft keyboard. (It also works with the Apple Bluetooth keyboard, if you have one of those.)
If you already have iTunes, go directly to Jump Desktop
