I am sure that there are lots of people out there who have used the types of programs available on the market that let you access your computer at home or work using your notebook or another PC when you are mobile. A new version of an app from RemotePC called RemotePC Lite has been unveiled that lets the iPad do that.
The previous version of the software for the iPad only let the user access multimedia files like video and music. The new version of the app allows the user to access their complete desktop right from the iPad. The software works with both Mac and PCs as well.
You can access your desktop files, applications, and resources from the iPad just as if you were in front of your computer via a WiFi network. Apparently, the app will not work over a 3G network. The app supports Windows 7, XP, Vista, and Mac OS X 10.4 and higher.
