Window 8 tablets combine the portability of an iPad with the functionality of a Windows computer. They can run the same desktop PC programs you use at the office, but when you're on the go, touch-optimized Windows 8 apps are easier to use without a mouse and keyboard. The selection of apps in the Windows App Store is more limited than on iOS or Android, but most business users will find the software they need to get the job done. Here are eight of the best Windows 8 apps for business.
Splashtop Business (Free)
Splashtop Business can turn your Windows 8 tablet into an extension of your desktop workstation. After the app is set up, it provides quick access to your work PC or Mac, including your documents and media library, as well as all software installed on that machine. To establish a remote connection, your office computer must be turned on, but you don't have to leave it running all the time; Splashtop can wake your computer remotely when you're ready to access it. Splashtop Business is free, and provides tools to help you deploy the software to your employees. Account administrators can grant and revoke remote access to work machines, and view usage history at a glance.
