Splashtop è una famosa app (che abbiamo anche provato) per visualizzare da remoto il Desktop del proprio PC, potendo così accedere a tutto il software in esso contenuto, giochi inlcusi. La versione 2 è appena sbarcata nel Play Store e per festeggiare l’avvento è disponibile per il download gratuitamente, ma solo per un periodo di tempo limitato.
Tra le novità introdotte segnaliamo l’uso del pinch-to-zoom, un’interfaccia rinnovata e ottimizzazioni varie, oltre alla possibilità di utilizzo della rete 3G/4G grazie all’opzione Anywhere Access Pack (che però costa 0,99 dollari al mese o 9,99 all’anno).
Se siete interessati ad un giro gratuito vi merita affrettarvi perché non conosciamo quando terminerà la promozione; sappiamo però che alla fine Splashtop 2 costerà 9,99$, ma non è chiaro se gli acquirenti della prima ora riceveranno anche i futuri aggiornamenti gratuitamente o meno.
