In order to make sure I have access to my files and programs on the road I set up VNC on my office MacPro. This is all built in to the MacOS (and Win XP and 7 I believe) but not into the iPad. After much deliberation I purchased iTeleport for $24.99. Wow! Very cool. It takes a bit of getting used to because your finger is working like a mouse rather than as in the iOS, but once I got the hang of it I was happily checking out Ruth on Accordance. UPDATE: There is a preference for touch mode, so clearly I have a lot more playing to do!
Believe it or not, that is Accordance on an iPad!
(I was using it in landscape mode, hence the sideways screenshot.)

Very cool. I have a similar setup using LogMeIn for the iPad.
I decided on this app since it doesn’t require that I set up am account with them or put a thing on the Mac. (You can do that as well, but I prefer to use the direct, manual set up.) I realize I am late to this game, still very nice to have it!
OK, but I still don’t see how Teleport enables you to see Accordance on your iPad. What am I missing?
iTeleport allows me to see what is running on my office machine. Accordance is running on THAT machine and I can manipulate it and see it on the iPad. I can’t copy and paste (at least I don’t think so, haven’t tried it) but I can see the material and get the information that I need.
