Spartan 1337 is not lying, it really is a great app.  There are other applications out there but you might want to do a little research on them because its usually kind of like a battle of your own preference.

Here is a list of some available to you:

TeamViewer has a  good interface too--seemed a little faster for me than PocketCloud but they both do a good job and are free for personal use.

Well if you have Citrix, you could just use the Citrix Receiver (which is free) but yes you can access the TS with PocketCloud. It is the only one I am aware of that can support TS connections.

One question.  I can't figure out how to access my home computer.  It's windows 7.  The VNC option states I have to install it on my computer.  Where do I get the software for the computer?

You should open up another question for that but you can download it from RealVNC

***Note that if you want to access this PC from outside of your network, you will have to create/modify firewall rules
