Splashtop is an Android application that allows you to remotely operate your computer. You can easily set it up and play games or watch movies.
The app’s primary functionality is to mirror the PC’s display onto a mobile device. Thus, granting you the ability to perform tasks on the computer as if you were physically present. You can play games, watch movies, or listen to music directly from your mobile device.
Security measures within Splashtop include options for a blank screen while in use. It prevents others from viewing the display of the remote computer. The utility also offers the ability to utilize the webcam remotely.
Setup and performance
The software setup involves a two-component installation – the Splashtop app on the mobile device and the Splashtop Streamer program on the target computer. You are also required to create an account to associate the devices. Once the streamer is active and the app is logged in, you gain control over the desktop via the mobile UI.
Performance-wise, the app is engineered to deliver high-definition streaming by supporting resolutions up to 4K at 60 fps, with a focus on maintaining low latency. Adjustable settings for video rendering and resolution are available to cater to varying bandwidth conditions.
