Want to access the files and folders on your PC or Mac right from the comfort of your couch? RemotePC is a free iPad application that will make this a possibility. The application requires users to first register for a RemotePC account here and then also install the server software on your Windows or Mac based computer. Finally, download the free iPad app from the App Store to get started.
To access a file, users need to launch the iPad app and pick the computer to access. Once done, they may navigate to the folder (or from desktop) and launch the file to view. RemotePC will support most document formats including Word, Excel, PDFs, images and videos. Since this is primarily a viewer application, you may not be able to edit files. The application also comes with a few interesting features like the ability to playlist music files so that you may play PC music on your iPad without the need to transfer them.
At a $0 price, I think this is a pretty neat bargain. What do you think?[via Mobiputing]
