Use Chrome Remote Desktop to Control Computer from iOS

I've tried to use this Chrome extension before from computer to computer but it was always kinda clunky.  But now with the latest update you can control your Mac or PC from an iOS device.  You get a mouse and keyboard to use and can click and do other useful functions, like control + alt + delete.  You need to download the app here and the companion Mac app here and set up each one.  Sync them together and away you go.  

Access other computers or allow another user to access your computer securely over the Internet.
Chrome Remote Desktop allows users to remotely access another computer through Chrome browser or a Chromebook.  Computers can be made available on an short-term basis for scenarios such as ad hoc remote support, or on a more long-term basis for remote access to your applications and files.  All connections are fully secured.

Chrome Remote Desktop is fully cross-platform.  Provide remote assistance to Windows, Mac and Linux users, or access your Windows (XP and above) and Mac (OS X 10.6 and above) desktops at any time, all from the Chrome browser on virtually any device, including Chromebooks.
