    Remote Desktop Touchscreen


    Hi,

    Does anyone know of any iOS apps that allow you to use a remote desktop for Windows 8 but interact as if you were controlling it with a touchscreen rather dragging a mouse around. I've used Splashtop's FileHound, and TeamViewer, but they're both mouse orientated.

    So does anyone know of any touch orientated ones? Thanks so much.

    Splashtop.com seems to be it... Enjoy for now!

    The Splashtop app is NOT FileHound. There is a separate app specially for a Windows 8 host. And it runs on an iPad.

    ProtoType, what I meant was that Splashtop has several products. But only one will stream from Windows 8 to an iPad or Android tablet with full Metro UI touch. The other products will try to emulate a mouse. But the only Splashtop product, the Win8 Metro Testbed, at the link I provided above, will give you the full touch experience.

    Sorry, after rereading my previous post, it was sort of vague.
