Sneak Peek: CloudBerry Remote Assistant for iOS

A year and a half after the release of CloudBerry Remote Assistant for Windows, we're excited to announce CloudBerry Remote Assistant for iOS — the easiest way to manage remote computers from iPhone and iPad.

Introduction

CloudBerry Remote Assistant for iOS is similar to the Windows app and allows you to establish secure remote desktop connections to your computers. Once connected, you can control your computer as if you were sitting right in front of it — the app can easily simulate both mouse and keyboard events. If you're away from your computer but quickly need to access some document on it, or maybe you need to help one of your users resolve a problem on their computer, CloudBerry Remote Assistant for iOS will help you do that in just a few taps.

Connecting to a computer is similar to what you're used to on Windows: just open the app, enter the computer ID, and tap on the circular white button:

In a few seconds your computer's screen will be displayed on your iOS device. You can tap on the Control Center to switch monitors, activate the chat window, or request full control.

From there, you can drag the mouse by moving your finger across the screen, imitate clicks by tapping on the screen, and perform drag-and-drop by double-tapping and then dragging some file or window.

Here's how the chat window looks:
