Best Windows 8 Apps
22 August 2016
I travel a lot and the ability to log on and use my office computer is indispensable.

Splahtop is an awesome product with fair pricing.

I have too many on screen computers to scroll for. Wish group folders was added. Other than that app works great.

I hated Windows RT until I remembered I had a business account for splashtop. RT is no longer junk for me. This app is a God send. It has helped me organize my remote sessions with my own customers, and made RT epic.

The app logs me out every time I minimize the window. The result is me having to log back into the application multiple times a day, this is annoying and needs to be fixed.

The only thing that keeps me from rating this app 5 stars is that you can not flat bar the app without having to reconnect

So far it seems to work quite well. Does not have all the bells and whistles of some other products (Teamviewer and Logmein as examples) but for the cost, it's hard to beat this product. Just be aware of its limitations but I believe its a good value.

I occasionally login to help a client out and other packages out there were too expensive and either had too many or too few features or the setup was not easy. Splashtop has everything I need, its quick to access and does the trick. Only criticism I have is when you have to right click, you get the task bars and you have to do it again to access the remote computer. Perhaps putting a floating icon to access Splashtop features instead of using the right click method.

Love the app; but I love the desktop version evening better because they added the search filter at the top of the task bar.
Side Note - to Spalshtop developers, please add this same search feature to the app version.
Thanks for your time...

I connect mostly to Servers and sometimes it does not connect. If I retry connecting with a different device it usually connects. App will not connect to any Server that is also the RDP connection, known problem.

Good service but needs some peeking

Very nice software. Great alternative to logmein.

Works well but needs a couple of additional options like displaying the IP address of the host in the iOS App. It's only available through a browser session. The latency needs addressing but I hear it will be fixed in the next version upgrade. Splashtop has done a great job so far, I'm looking forward to the next version.

I think it still needs improvement, there is no built in chat client, and the list of workstations is too large, a simple list would be better. also the non metro application is stuck as a small window without the ability to full screen or resize. the connections are a little less stable then the competitors. with all these drwbacks this is still the best option for the cost.

I wish there was a way to be able to chat with the person to see if they want me to be on. Other than that I like the program.

This app really helps, I love the touch screen ability; I occasionally have an issue where I must hit some short cut key and which starts launching commands as I type, but a function windows key seems to solve this; Overall this app has been a HUGE help. Easy to log on, very fast and much better than other web-browser based systems I have been using

Once file sharing is in place later this year,(fingers crossed) it'll be a solid 5

Windows 8 app needs work... To hard to scroll through PC's if you have more then 10

I enjoyed splashtop on my former win 7 computer for the last year but with the switch to 8.1 its barely useable. I cant middle click, alt click, control click or even right click. it seems for some reason it think my win 8.1 pc is a tablet or something. odds are if this bug isn't fixed I wont renew. It has no value

My business provides support for hundreds of client PCs three states away, and my full availability during their normal (and other, lol) business hours.
Splashtop Business makes my business possible at a fraction of the cost ($60/year) of their competition.
Splashtop is easily 5 stars in regular Windows 7/8.1, but I'm only giving it a 4+ for the Windows RT version, simply because of the very strange [lack of] sorting of the current RT release. C'mon guys; get this fixed!
That said, I still find it an indispensable tool which - along with the Surface RT - keeps me from being tethered to my office.
I highly recommend it. Especially for IT pros who need an economical and reliable support tool. On an annual cost per seat basis, nothing else comes close.

Windows 8.1 sucks on the Surface RT, ant it should be accessible on the Surface RT.
