What is Remote Access Software?
Remote access software is used to access or control a computer remotely via another device that's connected through a network or the Internet. Remote desktop software enables the user to see and control a connected PC as though they are sitting directly in front of it. You can perform actions and tasks on the remote computer or copy, download and edit files remotely.

How to use Remote Access Apps on Your Android Device?
To use any of the following remote access apps on Android, you'll need to create an online account and install the software on the computer you wish to remotely access. Next, you'll install the Android app on your device and provide your login and password information to connect.

1. TeamViewer for Remote Control
The TeamViewer app for Android makes it easy to support friends and co-workers when they have computer problems and you can also use the app to access your own computer to edit documents or access files from your Android device. The free app features multi-touch gestures to control remote computers, you can access computers behind firewalls and proxy servers and transfer files from your Android mobile device to any computer and vice versa. Download the free app here.

2. Splashtop Remote Desktop
The Splashtop app provides remote desktop access to any computer running Windows, Mac, or Ubuntu from your Android smartphone or tablet. You can access all your applications and documents over Wi-Fi or 3G/4G using the Android touch to control. Features include access up to 5 computers with a Splashtop Account, an intuitive touch experience to control your computer and access all your programs and files, including desktop applications and documents. Splashtop offers both a free and paid app.

3. PocketCloud Remote RDP / VNC
PocketCloud Remote lets you access files and run applications on remote Windows or Mac computers from your Android device. The app features numerous connectivity and security options and you can easily copy files you need from your desktop or help a friend with a computer problem using remote access. PocketCloud Remote RDP / VNC is available as a free or paid app.

4. Android-VNC-Viewer
It allows users to remotely access their desktop via an Android device and is capable of connecting to most VNC servers including RealVNC (Windows and Linux), TightVNC, x11vnc and Apple Remote Desktop (Mac). You can also import and export settings to a file from your SD card and URLs for importing settings.The only problem with android-vnc-viewer is that it requires a VNC server and many users might not have the knowledge to setup a VNC server on their desktop computers. Download the free app here.

5. GPP Remote Control
If you are looking for an application that does not have a complicated interface and focuses on providing the most basic options to remotely control your computer, the GPP Remote Control is just what you need. GPP Remote Control has been designed for users who wish to remotely access their computer to copy, download, upload and delete files, manage upload/download tasks, monitor your home via your computer’s webcam, monitor your child’s computer usage, keep an eye on employees at office, and much more. GPP Remote Control has a simple interface that displays options to manage files, control system processes, access the webcam and use installed messengers on your computer. The best thing about GPP is that it is extremely easy to install, even for people with little knowledge about remote access. Download the paid app from here.
