PocketCloud Pro is among the highest rated remote desktop apps for Android tablet, and users report it's pretty convenient as far as tablet apps go. So, what is a remote desktop app and why would a tablet user need one? After all, shouldn't a tablet provide most of what you need, most of the time? Well, yes, but this app fills in the gaps for those who simply can't, but must, leave the primary computer behind, and the usual methods of carrying data just aren't sufficient. In simple terms, PocketCloud Pro turns the Android tablet into a portal for complete access to one computer from another.

Developer Wyse Technology Inc is really aiming for business users, so some of this app's functionality might be a bit extreme for a casual consumer. So though PocketCloud Pro loses points for the $14.99 price tag (at least compared to the rest of our list), it's redeemed by its security features, including an encryption system designed to safeguard highly sensitive business data. PocketCloud Pro also claims that users can count on fast, reliable connections to its servers and an easy setup process.
