The Kindle Fire seems to be the tablet to get, I may have to look more into it. If you’ve got the Kindle Fire then you can now get Splashtop on it so you can access your computer, PC or Mac, while you’re away. Price is $2.99 from the Amazon Appstore for the main app, then you’ll need to install the free Streamer app on your computer for full access.
Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, today announced that Splashtop Remote Desktop is available for the Kindle Fire. Splashtop Remote Desktop enhances the capabilities of the Kindle Fire to make it more than an eReader or way to consume content. With Splashtop Remote Desktop, Kindle Fire users can remotely access PCs and Macs with full audio and video from a private network or over the Internet.
Splashtop Remote Desktop eliminates the need to transfer, convert or sync files and multimedia from a PC or Mac with a Kindle Fire. Important work files and office applications, such as Outlook, PowerPoint, Keynote, Excel and Word, are easily accessed with this app. Content for personal entertainment, including movies, music, photos and even 3D games, can also be viewed remotely.
“Now you can not only curl up with your Kindle Fire to read a good book, but can run whatever software you have on your Mac or PC,” said Mark Lee, CEO and co-founder of Splashtop. “Adding Splashtop to the Kindle Fire simply makes this hot product hotter.”
