3 Best Of The Best Free Remote Desktop Access Software

There was a time when I (and probably you) struggled with Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop software on a Windows PC to remotely access someone else's computer. It was a terrible experience and never worked for me as it involved quite a few network settings and protocols --- which I still don't understand much. And there were few free and premium remote desktop connection managers like LogMeIn, GoToMyPC, etc. at that time. But I was least interested in trying those remote desktop connection managers as it was of no use to me. Then, with the advent of the smartphone era, I tried remote desktop apps for mobile like Splashtop, PocketCloud, LogMeIn,, and TeamViewer, etc. and almost all of them failed to impress me. It was simply not the kind of productivity apps that I wanted or even care about. My impression completely changed when Microsoft and Google introduced their own Remote Desktop apps for web and mobile a few years back. The good thing is... both works perfect and is free without any restriction. So here is a quick review (plus comparison) of the 3 (and only 3) best remote desktop access software that are free.

1. Chrome Remote Desktop

Chrome Remote Desktop is a Google Chrome app that lets you access all your computer(s) from another computer or from your mobile device(s). It can be used for a variety of purposes like to access your own computer from a remote location or to provide (or get) remote support or to securely access your files or software applications on your computer from a mobile device, and so on. What I really like about Chrome Remote Desktop is that it's linked to your Google account. So there's no such thing as an extra user id or special codes to access your computer from another device of yours. And the installation and setup is pretty simple. All you need to do is install the Chrome Remote Desktop app on all your devices (computers, tablets, mobiles) and you're good to go.

Over 71 Inspirational Steve Jobs Quotes To Make You Feel Like You Can Achieve Anything

Steve Jobs

The ever important keynotes of Steve Jobs have caught my attention since the introduction of the Apple iPhone 5. I had always read about his presentation style and simplicity in the past but never paid attention to those keynotes myself except for the iPod nano presentation.

You ever wonder what this pocket's for? I've always wondered that. Well now we know. Because this is the new iPod Nano.” – Steve Jobs (at the iPod nano launch)

Inspired by this quote I decided to watch all his important keynotes. Started with the 1984 Mac followed by the iPod nano (once again), iPhone, iPad, and finally the iCloud. It’s all fantastic! It was again few days of total-inspiration for me and as I always say:

Entrepreneurship needs regular top-ups by way of motivation.

The Best Dictation (Voice To Text) Software Is Here (And It’s Free!)

“Voice typing…” on Google Docs I'm a desktop kind of person who almost always prefer a computer over a phone --- unless I'm away from my desk. I have already mentioned on several blog posts that I take a lot of time to create a blog post --- from researching to writing to editing to formatting. And that's why I'm always trying to find a way to streamline my content creation process --- to make it more consistent, stress-free, and efficient. Obviously, the biggest task involved in publishing a blog post is actually the writing process itself. Once the first draft gets done, the rest happens like magic!

Over the past several months/years, I tried several dictation or voice to text software --- including the super-popular Dragon Speech Recognition Software (but I tried it several years back) --- and nothing really worked for me. Not anymore!

Meet "Voice typing..." On Google Docs

I was an active Google Docs user until few months back and then almost stopped using it. A couple of weeks back I noticed that Google introduced "Voice typing..." to Google Docs. However, it's not supported in its iOS (on iPhone and iPad) apps, yet.

The Fantastic Five Mac OS X Utilities I Can’t Live Without

Best Mac OS X Utilities I love tools. I really do, and some of them are the ones that I simply can't live (online) without. That's how I ended up publishing over a dozen listicles featuring the best productivity tools, blogging tools, marketing tools, social media tools, browser extensions, etc. Today, I have decided to show my gratitude to fantastic five Mac OS X utilities. I said, "Utilities" and not "Apps" since it's just a nifty list of tools that enables you to do certain things (or to enable additional functionalities) that are otherwise not possible on your Mac. First things first. As I have mentioned, it's just a tiny list of Mac utilities (or rather say utility apps) that are obviously available only on Mac OS X. All of them basically enables you to do one thing (and only one thing) that can't be done without using a third-party app on a Mac.
