I installed a new iPad application, Splashtop, that mimics what Windows 8 will look like on a tablet. The application is $25 in the Apple App Store and requires a PC running Windows 8 Consumer Preview to connect to via virtualization technology. The application is geared to developers who are coding Windows 8 Metro applications and want to test it on a tablet without the expense of purchasing a Windows tablet.
Installation was straightforward:
- Purchase and install the iPad application
- Install the free streamer application on the Windows 8 PC
