Hi friends! I have spent the last three days setting up and presenting and attending our wonderful district Technology Conference! It's been exciting and I have some great things to share with you.
Would you like to control your desktop computer with your Ipad- while viewing your computer screen on your ipad?
*Since writing this post, I have discovered a better app! Check out Splashtop Whiteboard, currently $9.99, normally $19.99! This app gives you the functions of a whiteboard!!!!
I'm asking you if you would essentially like to turn your Ipad into a Mobi Interwrite... for free. You can even buy a stylist and WRITE ON YOUR SCREEN!!!!!!
Yes, bloggy friends, it's true! In order to do this you will need a Virtual Network Computing, or VNC app.
This video is just a demonstration of the technology. This is the paid version of an app called "Screens" which does the same thing as Mocha Lite.
I just installed this version and IT WORKS AND IT IS SOOOOO COOL!
Mocha VNC Lite App Cost: $0!!!!
Using your iPhone or iPad, you can connect to a Windows PC or Mac OS X and see the files, programs, and resources exactly as you would if you were sitting at your desk, just on a smaller screen.
"VNC" $0 Cons: Hard to set up without watching a tutorial, but here's the video tutorial that gives simples steps to follow!
RDP $0- Same as VNC, but works on a PC is how I understood it.
Here are the directions for how to set up the Mocha VNC Lite to connect to a Mac:
Directions for controlling a PC:
1. Go buy a Mac. Seriously. Watch this video, it has 17,0000,0000 steps of silly windows things. Watch the Mac video. It takes 2 secs and 1/198 the amount of steps. Alright, I'm off my soapbox.
Here's your video:
I've so excited right now I can't even tell you about it. Basically I just created a Mobi FOR FREE!!!!!! I don't have an interactive whiteboard, but now I can control the computer and see the screen on the Ipad at the same time. You can also do this with an iphone or itouch.
More to come soon...
