Windows Remote Desktop App for Android & iOS Lets You Work From Anywhere

Windows Remote DesktopMicrosoft’s new remote desktop app may be just the thing for busy business travelers who need to access their files and fire up desktop applications while on the go.

Microsoft launched the app, which is compatible with all iOS and Android devices, late last week. It allows users to access the desktop of any connected Windows machine from their mobile device.

Third-party apps offering similar functionality already exist on both iOS and Android, but it’s the first time Microsoft has offered native remote desktop support for either major mobile platform.

The app uses the same Remote Desktop Protocol that Microsoft has employed for years, and supports any Windows PC that has Remote Desktop enabled. That option can be toggled on and off in the control panel.

For small business owners, the app is a reliable – and secure – way to connect remotely to your home PC from the office, or vice versa.

It’s also an easier way to use your Windows applications on the go. That means you can take advantage of the full desktop versions of Microsoft Word or Excel right from your smartphone or tablet to view and edit documents from anywhere, for example.
