Desktop Remote Access Description

Xtralogic Remote Desktop Client for Android enables you to connect to your computers across the Internet from a mobile device powered by Google Android platform. Once connected, it gives you mouse and keyboard control over your computer while showing you everything that’s happening on the screen. You can leave your computer without losing access to your files, applications, and e-mail. Xtralogic Remote Desktop Client is using Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). All the necessary server components are already part of most versions of the Windows operating system. Personal editions of Windows and Mac do not have RDP server functionality, but they can be accessed over VNC protocol.
Please keep in mind that not all all operating systems have Remote Desktop services right out of the box. There is a list of operating systems that can be used right away and some that may require an add on if available.
