Be sure to check out Macworld's Appstravaganza. This isn't another best-of-2010 collection but rather a curated collection of apps that everyone should have.
In his article in the Fall 2009 issue of iPhone Life, “The Best iPhone IT Administrator Utilities” (iphonelife.com/issues/Fall2009/BestIphoneITAdministrator), Nate Adcock listed a number of programs that can be used to access your desktop remotely. This article elaborates on these applications.
The applications described and compared in that article and this one are mostly meant for accessing one’s desktop apps running on a computer in an enterprise environment. We are not looking at apps designed specifically for remotely controlling multimedia playback.
(Author’s note: This article is based on a conversation I had with Christian Zambrano, Project Manager of the JACI Group, Inc.)
Christian Zambrano’s work is never done! He works for a company that has a Midwest office and programming staff in India. Because of time differences, he gets urgent questions sent to him at all hours of the day. His iPhone lets him take the office with him. He can be anywhere and check his two work-related accounts and one personal e-mail account.
