Desktop Connect Vnc App: and Just Like That, Flash on the iPad!

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 4, 2010


If you ask me, the perfect tablet would be a combination of the iPad and the JooJoo; i.e. an iPad with a camera, support for Flash and a USB port. Fortunately for (future) iPad owners, the Desktop Connect app by Antecea takes care of two of those missing features. In a nutshell, Desktop Connect lets you remotely view and use a desktop computer, meaning you can view, use and edit files from your main computer without having to transfer them to the iPad, reducing the need for a USB port. Want to play Flash games or watch Flash videos? No problem.

Now all the iPad lacks is a camera. No actually it still needs a USB port. You can purchase Desktop Connect at the iTunes store (link opens iTunes) for $12 (USD).
