Securely access your computer from your iOS device. It's fast, simple and free. • Download the Chrome Remote Desktop app from the Chrome WebStore on the computer you want to access remotely. • Install Chrome Remote Desktop software and follow the instructions to complete setup. • On your iOS device, open the app and tap on any of your online computers to connect.
Works great for me, I haven’t used it extensively but when I use it on my laptop to log into my desktop that seems to work excellent. Now being on the iPad it seems pretty well I’ve only used it for a few weeks now but all in all it does exactly what it needs to do. I have a feeling it’s not as good as screens but for what I use it for at all I need. Screens is still my go to but this has actually been more reliable.
If pc has no mouse track pad on iPhone shows no mouse. Can’t drag the taskbar that shows it’s screen sharing or minimize it. Sometimes it just doesn’t show up which is nice and creepy. Does not auto pop up keyboard when entering text field. Otherwise 5 stars.
Doesn’t work on windows 8
CRD is pretty good in terms of simplicity and connectivity. What is annoying about the iOS app however is the bugginess with the keyboard and lack of key features. There is no way to invoke the arrow keys or special keys remotely, which can be a major issue in command line situations. Further, if you have a Bluetooth keyboard, often keystrokes will not register on the other end unless you do a full disconnect and reconnect. This happens frequently and is a showstopper. I wish some TLC was put into the app to tune it up a bit, because it is a very good low-latency remote access system otherwise.
My Samsung Chromebook doesn’t let me connect to my phone 😞
I love this app. Used it in multiple environments. Now at the end of 2018, it is very unreliable on my Windows 7 x64 boxes. Rebooting doesn’t fix it, updates aren’t pending, just fails to connect. I know it could be a lot, but I think something is up with the app itself. Hope they keep improving, this works better than the native windows RDP in several use cases.
I have been using this app for a while now and it works great! I just wish that it had support for a command key so I can use this program on a Mac.
The guy below didn’t read the guide, he should have spent 5 minutes skimming thru it and would have realized that he needed to connect both phones browsers to the same account and sync so they know where each other are.
No matter how hard you try you can never see a list of computers let alone the one computer that I’m trying to connect to remotely from my iOS device to a chrome book. I’ve tried everything I can this app doesn’t even have a preference setting for iOS. The other aspect of it is is nothing more than an extension for chrome on the chrome book and not configurable there either so there’s nothing I can really do to fix it.
Doesn’t work. Doesn’t do what I do in the app. Booooooooooooooooooooooooooo
