Splashtop Personal App Reviews

I want a refund

Everything else works just as fine except that I can’t use it to draw on photoshop which is the only reason I got this app And by the looks of it this issue has persisted long enough and it hasn’t been fixed yet.

Works great

Runs well on iPad Pro to manage both windows 8 and 10 desktops. Just paid for the annual subscription which is fairly cheap. Just moved over from TeamViewer after it kept complaining that I'm using for commercial purposes when I'm not.

Not a drawing app

I was hoping I could use this app on my iPad as a drawing tablet, but it’s it very clunky it will not let you draw clear smooth lines.


Yes, this is the one you're looking for. Simple to setup, simple to use and frequently updated. This has got to be a passion for these guys, because over the years of owning this app it just gets better all the time but more importantly SOLID. Each release has worked spot on for me. Without any hesitation I highly recommend Splashtop!

Just 30 minutes in ...

Just installed the Personal version. I’m impressed. I have to go through a short learning curve for the finger motions; may look for mouse emulators, but for now I am elated. Now I can actually work certain issues from anywhere in the house. Next will be the version that I can go away, outside of my home network, and get updated data from my home pc while on the road.

Mouse stops responding until I restart my iPad

Is my most used app, I use it all day every day. I need to restart the app many times a day now to get the mouse to respond. This started recently.

Need a refund

Getting too much slow connection, I am 1 gig network and this remote session can’t even keep up..


Almost like you were there

Works great for DAW control

After having one DAW control app become obsolete due to ios11, and trying two others that didn’t work, Splashtop works wonderfully for controllingCakewalk Sonar on a PC.


Simple interface & works great!

Working okay (with random slowness to respond.)

I have a great Network setup in my home and it is still very slow. Some days it works flawlessly, and some days it takes more time to use it than it would to drive home and work without it. Also, it’s very difficult to learn the shortcuts. Hard getting used to controls.

Remote Access Costs Extra But Worth It

I used Splashtop for about three years with mutliple computers, tablets, and phones with great success. I use it mainly when I want to watch a movie/show that is downloaded on my computer, that I want to watch in bed on my tablet. I also use it commonly for streaming live sports from certain web sites on my tablet (the tablet can't play video on its own since it doesn't have flash built in but using splashtop bypasses this hindrance)

Best ever

Seamless between many devices and rock solid operation!

Best features behind subscription

App is fine. Works consistently. Uses Touch ID. Easy wake-on-LAN. Easy connecting to computers on your local WiFi if you turn off your VPN on both the host and guest device. The productivity pack is feature-packed, but most of the features should be free. The app would get five stars if every feature of the productivity psicólogo were free, except for syncing your custom UIs across devices, which should be bundled with the Access Anywhere Pack, rather than being its own subscription. The effective price of the app is $10 + $7 per month or $34 per year for the best experience. I have had the app for several years and have not maintained either subscription, except when I need remote access, which is rare, and growing rarer with the expanding capabilities of iOS.

New update added new bugs

This app is amazing, but there are some things that prevent me from giving it a 5 star. The app worked fine until it got the new update. While it did make the app look a lot better than before, it made the app slower to use and more tedious than before. It added some lag and whenever I use the trackpad option, which is what I always use, whenever I move my cursor over something and the mouse indicates what it hovering over by changing its image, It moves the mouse to the bottom right which makes clicking on certain things very annoying.

The best for every device!

I’ve been using Splashtop since it was the free app of the day like 7 years ago on Android. I have always loved how seamless it is to connect to all of my computers using whatever device I have closest to me. I use it for both home and work, and I really enjoy the flexibility. Whether I’m accessing my home PC from my Mac at work, or checking a download on my laptop from my phone when I’m at lunch, this app has always given me the quick, easy access I need to manage my computers remotely. It’s really awesome.

Great app

Being able to access base home computer from my mobile phone or ipad make business procedures much easier. Thanks

Laden with bugs...Won’t stop crashing

I wanted to love this app. It’s a great idea. However, it crashes every time I try to open up the shortcuts bar. Really irritating. This is the reason why I went with this app over Screens, so if that feature isn’t going to work, then I am going back to Screens...How do I get my money back?

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”
