    I have used MS Remote Desktop on my mac for accessing windows PC. What is an equivalent app for iOS that I can use on my iPhone?

    TIA.

    If you want to stick with "standard" stuff, these two programs are the best I've used:

    For RDP, iTap. It's easily the best RDP client for iOS that I've used (and it's even good on Mac OS X).

    For VNC, iTeleport.

    I've spent well over $100 on "remote desktop" apps on the App Store, and those two are the best I've used.
    I use RDP for work, so I searched the App Store for RDP apps and nearly bought them all, so you can see how that would shoot into the triple digits, quick.

    I haven't tried the other suggestions, but for me Splashtop works flawlessly. It refreshes quickly, and on a good connection you can even stream audio and video from your desktop. I use it at work all the time over wifi, but it works even better on LTE if you're not worried about data caps. Highly recommended.
