Nope, but I have found it quite useful for note-taking, especially if the teacher uses powerpoint slides.

Literally the only time i connect locally with teamviewer is when i need to start the airvideo server on my PC and i'm too lazy to get out of bed to do it.

Does anyone use their iPad as a textbook?

I only use the free readers we can download on Blackboard. Those are just PDF files and Power Point presentations. A few examples:

PDF file opened in iBooks:

700

Power Point presentation slide in iBooks:

450

They work really well with the Retina display and I use it a lot. They just need to make a wolfram document viewer for the iPad. The only one there is now really sucks.

I use the free version of PocketCloud I find it more stable than TeamViewer and LogMeIn but that's just my experience smile.gif

Which app do you use?

Great conversation going folks. I wish I had more to contribute but I'm learning a lot here.

For those that said the only reason they log into their desktop is to start the AirPlay server... don't you wish there was a simpler way to do that? Seems it ought to be as simple as a single tap on an icon on your pad. All that logging in and what not seems a lot of work. I yearn for simplicity. Simple solutions are so often the very best, instagram being a fine example. This is why I have so much industrial velcro.

I'm a fan of Splashtop Remote desktop, I've always found it pretty good.
