Windows Remote Desktop launched for iOS and Android

Microsoft has launched Android and iOS versions of Remote Desktop alongside the release of Windows 8.1. The apps allow you to connect to your PC remotely. Remote Desktop is not a new thing, but this is the first time it has been offered to non-Windows devices.
