Get Splashtop Remote Desktop Free Today as Amazon’s Free App of the Day

While I don’t use remote desktop apps all too often, as I am near my computer usually anyway, in the times I have Splashtop Remote Desktop has been my app of choice. Connections are stable and I have found little lag in use. I have yet to drop a connection through the app itself, and when I have it was something to do with my router. Well today is a good day for those that need a remote desktop app as Amazon is offering it as its free App of the Day. Given that it is normally $4.99 any other day, this is one heck of a deal. Version 1.6.5.6 offers the following features: 

  • Support for more resolutions: 1024×600, 1280×720, and remote computer’s native resolution
  • New trackpad mode: Use 2 fingers to tap and toggle between trackpad mode and conventional gesture mode
  • New virtual mouse wheel: In addition to 2-finger drag/slide, now you can scroll content through virtual mouse wheel
  • Compatible with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Wake-on-LAN: Remote PC needs to be connected via wired LAN and WoL needs to be enabled through BIOS setting
  • Share with friends by clicking “Share” from the menu in computer list screen
  • New “Sharp & Smooth” mode: Sharp mode displays sharper image for texts, while “Smooth” mode is good for video playback
So if you are wanting a great app for remote desktop abilities but don’t want to pay $4.99 like I did, head over to the Amazon Appstore and get this app before the day is over because you can’t go wrong with Splashtop. If you haven’t installed the Amazon Appstore can do so by following this tip. I would recommend it to everyone with an Android phone as it offers you hundreds of dollars of savings a year. Enjoy!
