The desktop versions of Chrome make it easy to access remote PCs (and Chromebooks) linked together by your Google account, but this feature hasn't yet made the trek across to Chrome's mobile manifestations. We know that an official Android "Chromoting" app (an early build of which is shown in the screenshot above) has been in the works for a while, and now there's evidence it'll come to iOS too. Radio chatter between Chromium developers reveals that the iOS version is still at an "unpolished" design stage, but it also suggests that a good few devs have it on their to-do lists -- and although we have very little detail about how the final Chromoting app will work, these folks must believe that it'll do something different (or better, or easier) than the hoards of existing alternatives.
