Splashtop launches the iPhone version of its next generation remote desktop software, Splashtop 2 – Remote Desktop (“Splashtop 2”), leveraging its proprietary “Bridging Cloud” infrastructure, securely connecting iPhone users with their computers from anywhere in the world; the app will be offered free for a limited time
October 17, 2012 — San Jose, CA— Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, today announced the release of the iPhone version of Splashtop 2 – Remote Desktop (“Splashtop 2”), the latest generation of its award-winning remote desktop app. Following the release of Splashtop 2 for iPad in June and the rollout of the Splashtop “Bridging Cloud” infrastructure, the release of Splashtop 2 for iPhone will be introduced as a free app for a limited time.
To date, Splashtop has empowered over eight million users of mobile devices, from tablets to smartphones, to remotely access their Windows PCs and Macs, enabling them to remotely run applications, view and edit files, watch HD movies and play graphic-intensive games.
“In just over 3 months since its release, Splashtop 2 for iPad and Android tablets has already been downloaded millions of times,” said Mark Lee, Splashtop CEO and co-founder. “With this new release, we’re bringing iPhone users the same high level of security, privacy, and performance that consistently wins Splashtop its 5-star ratings.”
The Splashtop 2 app allows connectivity between devices in a local area network environment; in addition, a module called “Anywhere Access Pack,” available by in-app purchase, will allow users to connect to their devices across the Internet.
The app has a redesigned easy-to-use interface and has been optimized for new hardware features, such as Apple’s Retina display. The iPhone version supports up to 30 frames per second of streaming and sub-30-millisecond latency, providing for smooth video and responsive gaming experience.
With Splashtop 2, the only configuration needed to connect to computers is a user name and password. There is no need to configure routers or firewalls, or to manually enter IP addresses or security codes. With the addition of Anywhere Access Pack, the same simple process lets users connect to their devices reliably from anywhere in the world, over the Internet.
In addition, the app has self-optimizing technology that adapts to the conditions of the network, enabling the user to take full advantage of the bandwidth of a 3G or 4G network or Internet connection. While protecting user data through its proprietary Bridging Cloud, Splashtop deploys industry-standard encryption technology to maintain a high level of security.
Splashtop 2 requires the downloading and installation of the free Splashtop Streamer software onto a Window PC or a Mac. Supported platforms: Windows 7, Vista, and XP (including Home Premium), Mac OS X 10.6+ (Snow Leopard or Lion is required for Mac users). A computer with dual-core CPU is recommended for best performance. The purchase of Splashtop 2 includes a license to access up to 5 computers.
