    I am getting an Android HTC Incredible and I want to be able to remotely connect to my home PC, whenever I wish (even if I am not home to accept an invitation or however it works).

    What apps/programs are available, preferably free.

    I think there's Remote VNC at the android store. I used to use it on my PC but found team viewer much better but I don't think that's available for smart phones yet but VNC should do the job.

    The new Logmein Ignition beta for Android works very well.

    I'm looking forward to a teamviewer app as well.

    As far as VNC apps, I preferred Android-VNC over Remote VNC.

    PhoneMyPC works very well but it requires a Client side app be installed on the PC. Since I already use Logmein on my PCs, I'm waiting for this app to improve a little. I don't expect it to ever work as well as PhoneMyPC though. PhoneMyPCs controls are just about perfect and mouse movement is very smooth.

    None of the RDP apps I've tried work as well as either PhoneMyPC or Logemein.

    I also found phonemypc the easiest to use, what I like most is that even though you have to install client on pc it's pretty easy to hide it and keep the kids from knowing that I'm watching what they are doing on the pc.

    Remote Desktop is the "best" as far as quality and speed. Unlike all other methods, it does not send full screens of the computer, but instead uses lower-level access to Windows to make it run much faster (read: better performance over 3G).

    Remote Desktop however requires a Professional version of Windows or better. Home versions do not have it.

    VNC is a nice free alternative, but it is much slower.
