    Default Remote desktop?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a good app that acts like "remote desktop" for PC's that will work on my bionic? I have played around a bit with Zumo cast, but I dont really want to stream media or anything like that. I just want something like remote desktop where I can get files off my pc from my phone. Zumocast seems to work to do that, but Its not working for me when Im off wifi. It works fine at home, but It always says "offline" once I leave the house and am on 3g/4g.

    Try Dropbox or Qloud? Heard they were pretty good.

    I used to use Dropbox which isn't bad but I use "Minus" now. I will say with dropbox I know you can have a folder on your pc and everything in that folder is synced to dropbox. Not sure if Minus does that but I like Minus better for my purposes.

    Dropbox and Minus both have an android app to interact with your files.

    I use Dropbox, and it is great for accessing files.

    I also use LogMeIn for remote desktop. The service is free, but the app on the droid costs $30.

    I've been using teamviewer. It's free and am perfectly happy with it so far.

    TV is where its at. You can use this and drop box to access files. Plus with "Unattended access" setup you can use your computer virtually anywhere. You can get it here under the mobile tab. Make sure you have unknown sources checked in the application settings or you will get an error on install.

    Thanks for the replies. I might try a few of those. I had not thought of citrix. I use citrix for work to log in. Im guessing that Id have to setup my machine at home as some sort of citrix server?

    Yes, you'd need to have your home machine as a Citrix server and use a virtualized desktop.

    I use DropBox for syncing files and PocketCloud for remote desktop... If you use QuickOffice, it interfaces with DropBox, I switched to Docs-To-Go because it can share the license with my GTab version but I hope they interface with DropBox sooner or later.

    WYSE PocketCloud is free and has RDP and VNC. I really like it. It's not for sharing files though.
