In Pictures: 13 highly productive Android apps that play nice with your PC

Android apps

Splashtop Remote Desktop You're on the road with your phone or tablet and you desperately need to access a file you've left on your home PC. What's a poor traveler to do?

Simple: Boot up Splashtop Remote Desktop and tunnel into your computer from afar.

Splashtop Remote Desktop does exactly what its name suggests, letting you view and control your Windows PC right from your mobile device. It works great for "Oh no!" moments like the one described above, or for opening files and websites that your PC can handle, but your phone can't (Flash). I sometimes use it to stream movies or games. Even better: It's dead-simple to use.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
