    app to remotely access PC?

    I'm looking for an app that will let me access any file on my PC/home network. I see a number of them that let you upload files to a site, then download them on the Droid. But I'm looking for one that can directly access my PCs hard drive that's connected to my wireless network while I'm away (I.e. when I'm working like right now LOL).

    PhoneMyPC...you can't transfer the files though but you can do anything that you could do if you were sitting in front of the computer.

    Remote Desktop works best for me.

    You mean on PhoneMyPC??? What that app is, is it remotely connects to your computer and you use your Droid as your computer!! The screen of your Droid becomes your computer screen! But smaller and with multi-touch! It's perfect

    Thumbs up

    PhonemyPC is the best option out there right now. Its still in beta so there are missing features and some bugs, but its a good app for a beta and it will be a great app when its fully released. It works way better then VNC or any of the other ones i've tried. Its very easy to setup and has a lot of options for use, such as taking a screen shot, manipulating processes running on the PC, using the phone as a remote mouse and keyboard. Its cheaper now while in beta too. The price is supposed to go up after the beta period. They devs are really active in the forums and they respond very quickly to question and issues.
