Sort of. Thanks to Splashtop streamer and the iPad mobile client.

I was a little frustrated as all my existing RDP clients on my iPad (Logmein, VNC RDP, etc. would only show me a black desktop). I ask the Splashtop folks via Twitter if their product ($4.99 in the app store, at least for now) would work with Windows 8 and received a “yes”.

So, now I am up and running with Windows 8 on an iPad. Still experimenting, but at least I can see the Metro desktop and navigate.

Dock an app group folder on your iPad

A quick tip for those of you that haven’t figured this out yet. First, you can drag any individual app icon to the dock so that it shows on every screen, But did you know that you can also drag a group/folder to the dock?

I’ve dragged my Social Network photo my my dock. I’m busy re-arranging to speed up access to the apps I use the most. This was an ah-ha moment for me. Just sayin’…
