Chrome Remote Desktop for iOS lets users remotely access their PC or Mac from an iPhone or iPad
Did you ever have a situation where you were meeting with a big client on the road, and needed to access information that was on your PC or Mac? If you were sporting an Android handset, the Chrome Remote Desktop app could allow you to gain remote access to the box on your desk by using your Android handset or tablet. But what if you have an iPhone or iPad? Well, the answer is quite simple. You need to download and install the Chrome Remote Desktop for iOS.

Along with downloading the app, you will need to install a Chrome Remote Desktop browser extension from the Chrome Web Store. After a simple setup process is complete, the app can work with any of the user's online computers that have Chrome installed.

The Chrome Remote Desktop will support remote assistance for your Windows and Linux flavored PCs. To have access to your secure files, which is what you really want this app for, you need to be connected to boxes running Windows XP and above or OS X 10.6 and above. The Chrome Remote Desktop is a free download from the Apple App Store.

Very true, but it's an awesome feature I use a lot and it's great that others can now use the feature.

I need to set up remote desktop on my phone, you never know when it can be useful. I got the Microsoft app on my phone instead.
