There are times when you simply have to remote into a machine while you're on the go. That's all fine and good when you have a laptop available; but when all you have at your disposal is a smart phone or tablet, the tools you choose can really make your day much easier.
In some instances, of course, you're using a smart phone to manage the desktop and no matter what application you use, it's a challenge to navigate. Some apps, however, are better than others. I have compiled a list of five apps that work well for remote connections to desktops or servers. Each of these apps works on the Android platform (though some do offer an IOS version) and are free to use (with the exception of using TeamViewer for support purposes).Let's dig in and see what these five apps have to offer.

Is there any way to remote control another Android device (Android mini PC) by Android phone, work just like TeamViewer? Thanks in advance.
Worked for Chrome too. Thanks!
If you are willing to purchase a RDP client app, I like Xtralogic's Remote Desktop Client for Android. The setup interface and keystrokes are very intuitive and easy to use. I've been using the product for at least 1.5 years now and find it has all the features I need for a RDP client.
Same problem here!
I second MikeZangar's comments. Probably more growing pains of the new page view of the emails. Works the same way in FF as well as IE
Enjoy this segment every week, but the last 2 I have not been able to view. The slide show (for the lack of a better term) doesn't advance the picture or text? Tried in 3 different browsers and still no luck. Seems like there was a change in the look 2 weeks ago and have not been able to view since.
