Remote Desktop was one of the features missing from Windows Phones. Arguably, it’s a novelty to see your desktop from your phone but in a pinch it can really save you. Anyway, RemoteIt fills a void left by MS and provide remote PC access:
You can remotely control your whole computer with your Windows Phone. Just RemoteIt! Like Remote Desktop for Windows, RemoteIt lets you remotely display and control your computer with a mouse and keyboard. You can zoom in and out with pinch, pan around the screen, tap to click, double tap to double click, and hold to right click. The computer is displayed in vibrant full color. Please download and install the RemoteIt client software on your machine at: www.compugeeksoftware.com/remoteit.msi. To use, add a PC using the add button. Then type in the remote computer name (or IP address), the Windows username (add “DOMAIN\” if in a network domain), and your Windows password. Then just tap the computer name to connect. If you want to use RemoteIt outside of your local Wi-Fi, please port forward port 34301 to your computer. Please visit www.portforward.com for port forwarding instructions.

It’s just $3 and there is a trial mode. Not bad at all.
Now I know there is another app called Remote Desktop in Marketplace but that’s $15. If anyone has tried that one out and tries this one out and has a side by side we’d love to hear about it.
