(Mashable) – Controlling your computer with an iPhone just got a lot easier.

Google launched an iOS version of its Chrome Remote Desktop app Monday, which allows users to access their computers from their iPhone.

Sign in with your Google account (you can also switch between multiple accounts if you have more than one) to see the computers you’re able to access. Like the Android app, the iOS version of the app requires the accompanying Chrome extension to be installed on the desktop version of the browser.

Once installed, the app works in two modes: touch mode and trackpad mode. In touch mode, the default setting on iPads, tapping on the screen is the same as a left click on a mouse. And in trackpad mode, the default for iPhones, a mouse pointer is visible. Users control the mouse by swiping across the screen and tapping, which simulates a left click.
