GoToMyPC, everyone’s favorite thing that goes to your PC, is now available for the iPad. Essentially a glorified VNC connection, GoToMyPC is fairly famous with a less techie set and allows you to access your PC desktop from any device now, apparently, including your iPad.
The app is free and you can download it now. However, GTMP requires a subscription fee and you may be better off downloading a free VNC solution and tunneling out through your firewall. If that sounds a bit daunting, GoToMyPC is your answer.
