Splashtop Update Turns Your iPad Into A Second Monitor

We introduced you to Splashtop a few months ago, a mobile app that gives you a connection to your PC or MAC when you’re away from home. But late last week, an update to Splashtop was released and we just had to tell you all about it!

The new update to Splashtop features a battery of improvements that makes the app easier to use, more secure, and even turns your iPad into a second monitor on your PC. The update optimizes the new iPad’s retina display to the fullest extent, creating a richer, cleaner user interface. It also enhances the reliability of the app over any network, wired or wireless.

The greatest part of the update is the addition of Splashtop XDisplay. This new feature lets you turn your iPad into an additional monitor for your PC. With full audio and video support, pinch-to-zoom capabilities, and support for Windows 7 Aero display, XDisplay is an update worth taking a look at.

Access, Edit, And Share Your Files

The sweet tip for this week is about a new way to access your files remotely.

The iTwin, named after its identical USB “keys,” is an inexpensive tool that gives you the ability to access and share your files on two computers. The keys plug into USB ports; one on each computer. The keys work together to create a virtual “cloud,” with no limitations on storage, no recurring monthly subscription fees, and military grade encryption technology.

The iTwin grants complete access to practically every file on your computer. With keys inserted in both computers, you can edit documents, transfer files and folders, and share your data. Because the files are stored on your computer and not the device, you don’t have to worry about your sensitive data being subjected to unauthorized access. The iTwin works with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 as well as Mac OSX 10.6 and above.

If you want to learn more about iTwin, send us your questions to sweettips@compren.com. Don’t forget to ask about our incredible weekly specials and computer repair services available in your area. And for a limited time, you can call in for a free diagnostic certificate, good at any participating Computer Renaissance.
