PocketCloud (although it has a pro version, free version is quite featured)

Well, and then there's TeamViewer, for what it's worth.

Thanks for the reply. I was looking for one that didn't require a client application to be installed on the target PC. After trying numerous ones that didn't work, I found Remote RDP Lite. It allowed me to connect via RDP to the PCs on my home network. Even worked with VMs!

I might try that out. I've only tried the 2X client, and it worked very well, but I'm willing to give other apps a try.

I don't use the same number of apps as the most experienced Android users on the site, but I have to recommend a Twitter client called Twicca. It's free from the Market (well, it had better be, right?), but from having tried all the main Twitter clients, Twicca is probably the best. I live in an area that hasn't the most exemplary 3G coverage for whatever reason, and Twicca has always been the fastest Twitter client for pulling updates on my phone. It has a few bugs here and there (eg. it does randomly close at times), but all in all, Twicca has been my favorite client so far since it hits on the main points. The interface is quite nice as well, even though I do still prefer the Twitter for Android interface.

in 9 pages nobody mentioned Trillian yet? I just installed (although I have the pro version on the desktop) It almost made me juice my pants! It all my IM accounts up from my desktop to my device. I was in heaven.

I miss Goodreader from iPad immensely. Is there anything like that for my Android tablet? The nearest thing I've found it's Matano, but it's as intuitive as a car wheel covered in rusty nails (In Goodreader I could select a paragraph and copy, anotate, mark and highlight it without select it over and over again).

sshmote: use the phone as remote control for any player on the computer through ssh. It has profiles for mplayer, amarok, vlc, kaffeine and some more, but you can add your own commands for any other app (basically any app that runs or can be controlled from the command line).
Amarok2Remote doesn't need sshd but sshmote is more versatile and looks a lot better.

Gigbeat: I hate finding out that some band I like played live in my city and I didn't even notice. You just set up a list of bands in gigbeat and it'll tell you when any of them plays nearby.

RepliGo Reader and ezPDF Reader seems like good alternatives.

Since that post I've found repligo and indeed it's the best Android reader. Still not as good as Goodreader, but Im content.
