    Hello,

    Can you point me to a good resource for deciding what's the best app for controlling your phone via your PC -- and/or vice versa?

    Thank you kindly!

    For controlling your desktop one of the better options is Remote Desktop There is also an app called SplashTop that works. For controlling Android your options are very limited. Check out Teamviewer.

    OK thanks leeshor!

    Is there a reason you consider the Microsoft version of Remote Desktop better than the Chrome one?

    In a word, no. It depends on your level of expertise in either case.
