Splashtop Personal App Reviews

Works great iPad Pro 10.5

Really happy with this. Bought anywhere access option and allows me to hook up to my 2 home Win 10 PCs. Streams video & audio just fine - other popular free app I tried would not stream audio from a connect device.

This app works fine..

just a bit tricky issue.

Best Remote Access App

This app works and is extremely reliable. I previously used LogMeIn, but switched when they became unrealistic with their annual access fees. Splashtop provides all or more features of LogMeIn at a fraction of the price. I am connected, without issues, to both Mac and Windows computers.

QA getting worse

Now, the mouse pointer becomes misaligned when zoomed out and hovering over something changes the mouse (link making the “pointing finger”, edge of window making the opposing arrows for resizing, etc). They brought back the wide mouse buttons but they’re somehow still hard to click, I wish I could resize them arbitrarily.

Love the Convenience

I had been looking for a remote mouse app, not expecting to be able to access my desktop. But this app allows both and the convenience is beyond my expectations. There is a split second delay in trackpad responsiveness between iPad and desktop that makes precision clicking frustrating at times, but I deal with it. That’s the only flaw I’ve found so far in my limited use.

TeamViewer is free....

TeamViewer is free for personal use. Not sure what benefit paying an annual fee here brings

Buyer be ware

If you want to try this, buy just the 30 period. Of course they will auto renew once decide it isn’t worth it. This is an absolutely terrible product. And good luck getting any hone support, because they won’t speak to you about this upgrade or show you how to unsubscribe. Deleting doesn’t tend the subscription. Shame because the first Splashtop was the best deal in the App Store and this pack is all about taking your money and not standing behind the product.

Works great

I’ve tried several apps that remote-in to my computer, but Splashtop is head and shoulders above the rest. The only problem with the app is me—after I have not used it for a while, I forget that to remote in I need to have Splashtop open and running on my computer as well :-) . I just injured my leg, and am pretty confined to sitting in my lazy-boy downstairs. Nice to have my iPad running Splashtop to check my email and run some programs on my computer upstairs. Remote doesn’t need to be far away! ** I just dropped this review by one star. After submitting the original review, I received 4 identical emails from the same person thanking me for my review, and asking me if I want to update. Well, that’s really annoying and an invasion of my privacy. **

Great app from home or away

Just got this app before going on vacation and am amazed at how well it works. Had a few things I knew I wanted to try and get done and sitting here in the Cayman Islands it connected right to my home computer and works great. It also works well if you need to do something while home from the living room. I paid for a month but the year charges are so inexpensive that I may just get that and not worry. You will love this app.

You can use Mathematica with this

This app singlehandedly turned my iPad into a notebook. Bravo. Edit: Everything was going fine but after 24 hours I encountered a huge bug in this app where the screen as well as audio is highly distorted despite being on my home network with a strong connection. Hopefully we will get a patch for this because its kind of a let down considering how good this app can be if it actually works. The day after I submitted my bug report the app was back working appropriately and I have since updated my rating to four stars. May not be perfect but it has its uses and the support team seems to be responsive enough to hold things together. Hope this helps.

Issue Fix it

Thanks to fix the app with the new version , I’m happy again,

Good App, crashes after last update on iPad Pro 10.5

Please fix

Another misguided "update"

Constantly disconnects now, and why are the mouse buttons so ridiculously small? They're minuscule on an iPad Pro. When Splashtop works, it's fantastic, but for the love of god stop tinkering with it.

Works great!

Works great with my iPad 3,2 as a client to my 2012 iMac. Attached an Apple Bluetooth keyboard to my iPad and now I have a remote Mac with a touchscreen; pretty cool.

Excellent for logging on to home computer while away

I love this app. I used it years ago, and remembered it when my current job allowed me to work from home or travel with my spouse. When I checked the App Store, there it was! I’ve had a little trouble adapting to all the extra security, but finally got it. Now I can work from anywhere at anytime!

Because of this app I’ve traveled the world without a laptop

Because of this app I’ve traveled the world without a laptop. I can always connect into my home or work desktop PC and work as though I’m sitting right in front of my computer.

Worst Ever

This app did not work and support did not respond. Have asked for refund. Environment IPad and Windows 10.

The worst

This used to be my go to app, but now it crashes at launch every time. Can’t support it anymore.

Works Great, But Wish I Could Transfer Files

I’ve been utilizing this app for a few months now and am loving it. With that, I really wish there was a way to transfer or share files without having to upgrade to a business account. If they would add this feature on, even as an additional subscription, such as with the mouse or whiteboard, I would change my review to 5 Stars. Other than this, it’s very user friendly and extremely simple to setup. Anyone needing a Remote Desktop Program should definitely utilize this app.

Not iPad friendly

Not iPad friendly. Only displays in portrait. My iPad keyboard case doesn't function standing up on end. Please fix.

Love this app

I’ve been using this app since it’s inception and is spot on the best. Desktop looks beautiful on my iPad. No need to have the computer with me when I have this. Splashtop is the best.

In-app purchase doesn’t work

App won’t let me connect to a service outside my network, says I need to upgrade....but I’m already a subscriber, I’ve already upgraded. When I try to repurchase in the app, apple says, via a dialog box, I can’t do it because I’ve already subscribed. There is no ‘restore purchase’ option. Support for Splashtop has been worthless. They wanted proof via a receipt. I emailed them the receipt from Itunes, then they wanted a screen shot of the very same receipt. It has been weeks. I’m done. I’m sure the app itself is fine, but there are payment bugs, hence I can’t use it....and I spent $17 for the annual subscription. Frustrated and moving on to a better solution (or at least a company with better support).

Need full screen support for 12.9 iPad Pro

When I try to mirror the PC screen on my 12.9 iPad Pro, about 1/4 of the bottom screen is black. The resolution is also not 1920x1080p

Been using this app for years with no real issues.

When I first got the app it was very impressive, then some connection issue creeped up. It took a few weeks for the developers to address the issue, but once it was fixed, the app has been running nearly flawlessly ever since. If anyone needs remote desktop access to their Mac or PC, then SplashTop is for you. The fact that is supports remote sound sets is apart from others. —— Now, years later it is still a great app. I have used the app since it was first added to the App Store.

Has Worked great for several years for me.

I’ve used Splashtop fo several years to run an Excel spreadsheet remotely for my job, mostly when traveling. Works great! I’ve recently moved to an LTE iPad mini. Works fantastic!!!

Still has the magic.

I have been using Splashtop for many years, however my computer started to act up and in the last year it was not functioning as it should. I finally got a new computer and downloaded the streamer just like the app prompted me to do and.... Walla!!!! It works perfectly just like it always did. I work in one state and live in another so was desperately in need for service such as this. I am happy that this company has remained consistent and that their services work just as advertised. It's a win win; and means it's good for their reputation and it is GREAT for production.

Works with IOS 11 and Win 7

Updated: with 11.0.3 the resolution broke and all was very low resolution. The screen on the ipad wouldn’t scroll rendering the app useless. I uninstalled on the ipad and reinstalled and it works fine now. Have a 4k monitor and although mouse movement is clunky ( I use the trackpad mode with left/right click on the left side of screen), it does work super well. Color me impressed. Setup was very simple, just create a free account, download and install the streaming software onto the Win 7 machine, and login both on the ipad and Win 7 machines.

Imposible to unsubscribe!!

I like the app but the only way to unsubscribe from a package is to delete your account.

Best Work App I Have!

Primary purpose for purchasing SplashTop was to TCB when away from home. It's amazing how from California I could literally use my home computer to download jobs from email and Internet and even print invoices in Maryland. On a convenience level I can sit in kitchen in the morning and use iPad Air to play Webkinz via SplashTop to PC. I will be renewing license come June. Amazingly this works just as well on my Moto X2! There was no additional monthly payment for wi-fi use but I bought the Anywhere use so even in the middle of a parking lot I can use cellular service to connect to home. Couldn't be more pleased. Even taking care of just one work crisis while away from the office makes the yearly fee well worthwhile! LOL it works as well from Hong Kong to USA! If I could only have one app it would be SplashTop! A++++

Love this app

I use this app all the time with both of my macs- love it!


Not only does this app allow me to control an old Snow Leopard app running on a 2008 MacBook Pro (some software I use for photography studio stopped working after Rosetta), on any IOS device, but it works flawlessly to control my current MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Pro from anywhere. Even through LTE! This software rocks!

It works

Exactly what I needed as I was far away from the computer and was able to access it from my iPad. “Hero of the day, saved my life”

Stable - just works

There when I need it. Works well for Mac, Linux and Windows. Has saved me a few times when other solutions didn’t quite work.

Works Great

Been using this for 3 years and plan to continue. Works as advertised.

Does a great job

The app works very well for me. I have used it, about once a week, on average, for the past 3 years or so. I use it primarily to manage a laptop being used for PowerPoint presentations that are displayed on a second monitor. Our environment is in a local network only. I have not used the app over the Internet. I can updates slides as they are being viewed as well as assist the presenter in jumping from slide to slide at need. I use it to control YouTube videos and Internet resources during presentations as well. Sure, I could do most of those things with a rf keyboard, but this is much cooler and lets me sit where I want and still see what's on the screens. Having said that, it's not perfect. In my use case, having to have a password is just a hassle. I have not been able to find a way to get around it.

Fantastic App

It makes it so easy to check in on my computer when I am at home or on the road.

Best VNC app available

I have been using Splashtop for years, it is bar none the best VNC app available


I wish it was available without wifi other than that this app is great thanks!


FINALLY a Remote Desktop solution from the 21st century. This thing shines especially on Windows. Make sure that you enable the Windows 10 native touch feature in the App Settings. Do that, and magic happens: Pinch and zoom, iOS-like scrolling turns your iPad into pretty much a Surface. And if you're using it within the same network, the lag is minimal. Thank you Splashtop! Now excuse me while I go find my jaw that fell somewhere...


This app is one of the best I've ever seen! The programmers are constantly adding new features, and trying amazing things! Buying this will be an amazing investment! The whiteboard feature really changed how I take notes! Good job guys!

Robust for 4 years

I've used this for more than 4 yrs. Never had problems connecting to remote PC; clever method of operating a click and drag OS with iPad gestures. Pretty awesome.

Works great. Feels secure. Easy to use.

I have used splashtop for many years and I've never had a problem. I use it on my iPad and iPhone to connect to my iMac at home. It's behind 2 logins/passwords, emails me to authenticate on a new device, and has additional security options so I feel secure using it in the future.

Very happy

Just a quick note to say that I am really enjoying this program it has worked flawlessly on all my iPads with my computer.

Love Splashtop!

Fantastic app! Provides access to desktop with ease! Highly recommend!

Works like a charm.

It is a very nice addition to a classroom with a smartboard. Students who don't like to go to the board you can hand them your iPad. Or I can use my iPad while facing the class to navigate thru my lesson on the board. It saves me from having to reach up to the top of the board (I have to use a stick) to close screens for example; great for short people. So simple.

clunky & kludgy but works

distinctly unMac-like app that is very stable, if sometimes prone to freezing. but never a crash. keeps working.

Love it!

Great app for getting work files when needed.

Works great! UPDATE

Needed this for emergency access to my desktop while on vacation. It works great! The fee is still reasonable at 1.99/month. Access is easy and reliable. Over a year later: still using it and appreciating the flexibility of working away from the office whenever necessary without compromising access to needed files and email. Two thumbs way up!

Screen Display

Changes computer display which is very annoying since I need to change it back every time I disconnect

It's alright

It was kinda laggy most of the time, and kept disconnecting. Also, could you implement some sort of pen pressure for this app. That would be great.
