WinRDPIf you want access to your Windows PC from your tablet or smartphone, a new piece of software will come in handy.

We reported last week that Microsoft was planning on releasing an official remote desktop app using the code behind the popular iTap RDP client for iOS and Android. Now, that newly official Microsoft app is available to the public.

The new Microsoft Remote Desktop is available for free on both Android and iOS devices, which means that yes, Microsoft now officially supports connecting Windows to an iPad or Android tablet to access files and apps. It’s a broader part of the Redmond company’s strategy to adapt to the needs of large companies, particularly when it comes to mobile devices.

If you’re interested in picking up the apps, they’re available in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store for their respective platforms.
