    I need to get a Remote Desktop app that I can use to run Windows 7 from my 2nd gen iPad Pro 12.9” Cellular. My Windows 7 is running in a very old laptop made in 2008. Core 2 Duo 3 GHz with 8GB RAM. The app must be able to use a Bluetooth mouse. I need one that is easy to setup, secure and maintain my privacy. I have to be able to use it from anywhere in the country as long as WiFi or cellular connection is available.

    Can anyone recommend a good app for this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Jump Desktop combined with the Citrix mouse is a great option.

    This. Especially on a 12.9 iPad Pro.

    I use Jump Desktop on my iPad Pro, MacBook Pro and iMac to RDP to Windows 10, Windows Server and it works like a charm.

    Teamviewer is great and free for personal use. You get a nag add letting you know it was a free session. Works really good. I have the app on my iPhone, MacBook Pro and my Windows box.

    I highly recommend it.
