Ableton Live on the iPad with Splashtop 2

Nakano Syun took the latest version of Splashtop on a test-drive with Ableton Live. This is a great idea! I love Splashtop, it is easily the best remote desktop app for the iPad. However there is a tiny bit of latency, just a bit, but it makes everything feel sluggish. I don't know if I'd rush out to buy it just do to this, but the results are good.

Painful Googlish translation from Japanese:

Just as easy to operate. Create account to download apps, just put a soft light to the main machine. Or not it will go up there Once you have purchased crunchy app? Easily connected. I only thought is about to launch the app.

What I think he is trying to say, based on my own experience with Splashtop 2:

Ableton is just as easy to operate on the iPad. Create an account with Splashtop and install the Splashtop Streamer companion app on your computer (Mac or PC). You just need to purchase the iPad app, and you will automatically see your computer listed. This makes it easy to connect! Getting onto your computer from the iPad is as easy as launching the app.

The new version of Splashtop is really that easy. You don't have to configure anything; it creates all of the connections for you based on your account. The iPad app is $2, but the Streamer and service are totally free!

Buy Splashtop 2 - Remote Desktop on iTunes: $1.99

In the new version of the app if you are going to access your home pc over the net as opposed to your home wifi network you now have to pay a monthly fee :(

Oh really? I hadn't read that! I just use it over WiFi. I did notice the old version is available as a desperate app now. You might want to look into that! I'd post a link, but I'm out at the moment.

I dont have to pay using it on the iphone. But I noticed on the iPad 2 it upgraded to 2.0 but on the iphone 3GS its still the older version tho. So yea maybe try that one.
