RDM for Windows vs. RDM for iOS

RDM for Windows vs. RDM for iOS

Recently, I looked at the differences between RDM for Windows and RDM for Android. But don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten all of you iPhone and iPad fans, because today we’ll be comparing RDM for Windows to RDM for iOS (and to be honest, I’m kind of an Apple fan myself!).

About RDM for iOS

First of all, in case you’ve spent the last couple of years encased in carbonite a la Han Solo and don’t know what I’m talking about: RDM for iOS is a free app that lets you access all of your remote connections and passwords directly from your iPhone or iPad. 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 so much more – all without having to head into the office.

Head to Head

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

Hopefully the above will help you decide when it makes sense to use RDM for Windows, and when to use RDM for iOS. As you can see, this isn’t an either/or thing. You can use both interchangeably whenever you wish. And remember: RDM for iOS is (and always will be) free!
