    I use the LogMeIn Ignition app and I really like it. There is no additional fee after you buy the app.

    Last week I attended a math convention and used LogMeIn Ignition to remotely access my iTunes and download dozens of free-for-today education apps. The hotel's slow lobby-only wireless would have forced me to camp out for hours with my iPad. Instead, I was done in minutes.

    There is 2 versions of LogMeIn.
    A free version (which works great for most people.)
    And a paid version which allows you do do more. (print, file transfer, stream.)

    Its also as good as your internet connection on both end. If your Ipad/Iphone have a fast connection and the computer you are controlling is on a fast connection. It's pretty good, there will always be a slight lag though.

    I'd recommend trying out LogMeIn between two computers first and see if you like it. (That wont cost anything.) If its acceptable , then buy the app.

    I personally like it and have the app.

    Doable, but I would recommend Splashtop. Faster remote experience than LogMeIn.

    I bought a few days ago to get access to my work laptop from my iPad when away from the office. Works great and set-up is a breeze. No confusing configuration issues, it just works.
    After installation on my iPad, I put on my iPhone and surprised how well I like it there. Having a wifi-only iPad, this opens up the option to access my home PCs over 3G on iPhone.
    App. well worth the $30 to me.

    It looks similar but will I be able to connect over the Internet. Say my laptop is at home on my home wifi and I am at school. The whole purpose is so I don't have to carry my laptop to school instead just the ipad
