The iPad version is 99 cents. This app is fantastic! The framerate is surprisingly smooth. It streams sound too, which makes this app stand out from many of the others. I'm a software developer and I can now go over to someone's office and show them what I'm working on right there in their office using the iPad.

One thing to note, the Splashtop server component (the part running on your computer) resizes the screen for your devices native resolution. This isn't too bad, but it does resize windows and might rearrange icons. It is a little bit of a hassle.

Great app, if I had access to iTunes on a PC, I'd buy the iPad version for future use. (EDIT: just bought it, it's still $0.99)

Keep in mind it requires a streamer install on the computer, so if you're looking for a true RDP app, this isn't it. I use it at home, but not at work.

Paid a buck for the iPhone version a while back and have been happy with it.
