The number one paid business app for the iPad in 49 countries, including the U.S., is Splashtop Remote Desktop, according to USATODAY. The app, which is compatible with Android and webOS, in addition to iOS, allows the user to fully access their PC or Mac remotely from their tablet or smartphone. Regularly $9.99, but available for $1.99 at the App Store, Splashtop Remote allows for the streaming of full-motion video and audio files. Users can access the browser from their desktop and surf sites with Flash, although it's more difficult on iOS devices. Users can also check their email and create, edit and read documents.
Splashtop has been working with Freescale, Intel, Nvidia, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments to better the performance of its Splashtop Remote Desktop software. Benchmark tests have optimized the app to run up to 15 times faster than competing products, says Ina Fried at AllThingsD.
