RDM for Windows vs. RDM for Android

Lately, we’ve been doing a lot of comparing (e.g. RDM Enterprise vs. Free, and so on). Today, I’d like to keep the ball rolling by comparing RDM for Windows and RDM for Android.

Before we begin, and in case you aren’t familiar with RDM for Android, it’s a free app that lets you access all of your remote connections from your smartphone or tablet. The app is powerful, easy-to-use and loaded with features. For example, you can manage users, change access rights, launch connections, import or export data, and the list goes on.

With this in mind, here’s a head-to-head look at RDM for Windows vs. RDM for Android, both using an XML data source. We’ll cover three key aspects: Features, Supported Remote Connections, and Credential Types.

And there you go folks! Now the choice is yours: will it be RDM for Windows or RDM for Android? Actually, I have an even better suggestion: why not use both? Remember: RDM for Android is and always will be FREE, so if you’re not using it already…what are you waiting for?
