If you want to be able to control your Windows XP, Vista or 7 computer using your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad then you can use Mocha Remote Desktop (RDP) or Mocha Remote Desktop Lite. These tools allow you to control your computer by connecting via the Wi-Fi or EDGE network in your home. You can control a computer exactly as if you were on the actual thing. This is useful if you need to control a computer in a different room, or alternatively for those lazy mornings when you can't quite reach for the computer.
