Picture of Control Your Computer With You Iphone/ Ipod Touch V2

In the past few months people having been asking me about the problems they have encountered with the software provided in my last Apple to Windows based Instructable. I have found some new software called Jaadu VNC, this allows you to do the same but with better quality and performance. Firstly I'm not going to brag about the price because it is in the App store for almost $25 or 15 pounds for my UK audience and seems like a lot of money to pay for this but in my opinion it's the best Application I've ever paid for. If your not sure about paying for it don't get or if you have bought and don't like it I'm sorry it hasn't lived up to your expectations.

Step 1: Getting Started

It is in the App store for almost $25 or 15 pounds but I use it all the time so in my opinion I think its worth the price but if you don't want to pay for it I think there's a free version
