TeamViewer, a free iOS app, lets you remotely access your computer with your iPad. With the steps below, you can use it to send yourself a file or control a friend’s computer for hands-on tech support. Your friend will see you moving the mouse and controlling the screen from your iPad, no matter where you are.
But if you’re looking to actually stream media from your desktop to your iPad remotely, check out AirVideo. It’s another free iOS app that lets you stream movies, saving you a lot of local storage space on your tablet.
