LapLink Everywhere 1.5

Despite positioning itself as a close competitor to GoToMyPC, LapLink Everywhere 1.5 is not at all the same type of software. GoToMyPC lets you operate a computer from a distance, whereas the low-cost LapLink Web service only lets you transfer files and read email between a Windows host and another Web-enabled device -- be it a computer, a handheld or a cellphone. If that's all you need to stay productive on the road, then LapLink Everywhere is a great deal at $10 (~£6.25) per month or $90 (~£56) per year for up to three host PCs, as opposed to $20 (~£12.50) per month for one PC running GoToMyPC. But if you need true remote-control capabilities to run, say, Microsoft Word from a computer that doesn't have Word installed or collect email using a client other than Outlook or Outlook Express, then you’ll need the pricier GoToMyPC or a more traditional remote-access package.
