Remote Desktop App Available NowMay 5, 2011 3 Comments
If you are one of those people who could benefit from being able to have access to your computer at all times then we may have found the app for you. Remote Desktop lets you connect your WP7 phone to your desktop, giving you access to all your files. This application runs for a steep $12.99, but for people who might need it for business purposes that price may be well worth it. There is also a trial version letting you test it out beforehand, but for the skeptics we are currently testing it out ourselves. We’ll let you know how it goes.
Remote Desktop will connect to any Windows XP, Vista, 7, 2003 Server or other Windows computer running at least Professional (Home editions do not allow Remote Desktop connections, Windows 2000 is not supported for security reasons) without any extra configuration except for enabling Remote Desktop Connections. Only supports standard security, does not support Network Level Authentication. Supports screen resolutions from native Windows Phone 7 resolution upto 1280 x 1024 and in 256 colour or 64 thousand colours and support for advanced RDP draw orders for high performance on low bandwidth connections. Connections must be to an internet visible IP Address or domain name such as a dynamic dns name, cannot connect to any server that is not internet visible.
