I just d/l off the Market, works great. says stops working on 5/31 so I'd assume it'll be available to d/l until then.

Thanks OP. I was looking for a free way to remote connect. I'm assuming this is a trial, and we'll have to pay eventually?

I've noticed a lot of bugs, and the design is a bit clunky. But it's a beta so I suppose that's to be expected.

Depends on what you want it for, but in my case it's a business expense. I paid $20 for the Xtralogic Remote Desktop app, and am absolutely thrilled with it. I use it to manage 4 web and mail servers for the hosting company I own. The best part of it is the way it turns the screen into a touchpad... you can move the cursor around with your finger and tap to click. I've set up hosting accounts for clients on my phone while sitting at a restaurant... priceless.

If you are a bit more tech savvy you can also setup a VNC server and client for free. RDP is the easiest for the minor cost though. What's really a shame is that there isn't a MS mesh client. Maybe Logmein works from dynamic ips. That's what's nice about mesh vs RDP. RDP you basically need static ips to find your servers.

I already have VNC working great between my phone and my computers.

I was wondering, does anyone make an application that let's you log into your phone from your computer?

phonemypc works well. $9.99 from the market. supports multiple monitors, keyboard, left click + right click, windows shortcuts, and more. Pretty much the only thing i cannot do is drag n' drop and get sound. it is a perfect for getting stat tracker from my phone, too. i use it all the time to set tv recordings on my windows media center from my phone.

I was just curious why you would choose Logmein vs VNC or Remote Desktop, which is what I happen to use.

There's also SWIftp which is an ftp server for the phone. You can transfer files back and forth using an ftp client on a pc. Works over wifi or 3g.

i looked at this one this evening, but you have to open the site on the computer, then you can sign in... and there is a timeout... how do you set it up with anytime access.

I really wish there was just a free rdp app. you wouldnt think it would be so rare.

Admittedly, I have used LogMeIn Ignition — full disclosure and it works well. Also, I've used regular LogMeIn, and I guess I outgrew it. Now I use RHUB servers for Web conferencing and remote access / support. Plus, RHUB is only a one-time cost.
