Splashtop Launches Remote Desktop App for Mac

Splashtop Remote Desktop Delivers a True HD Experience and File Access from Mac-to-PC and Mac-to-Mac

September 21, 2011 — San Jose, CA — Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, today announced the release of its Mac client for Splashtop Remote Desktop to be demonstrated at MacWorld Asia 2011, Beijing, China, September 22-25. Now Mac users can enjoy Mac-to-PC and Mac-to-Mac remote access from a private network or across the Internet. Currently Splashtop Remote Desktop enables millions of mobile devices, from tablets to smartphones, to remotely access PCs and Macs with full audio and high-definition (HD) video.

“Cats and dogs, oil and water, Macs and PCs – some things just didn’t belong together until Splashtop came along,” said Mark Lee, CEO and co-founder of Splashtop. “With our new Mac client, not only can Splashtop Remote Desktop users access their computers, but they can enjoy such features as the ability to run PC games and software remotely on a Mac with full HD and audio. Maybe that’s why some customers call our product the Cat’s Meow.”
