Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Not fussed about controlling a Mac over the internet, or controlling a Windows PC. Just controlling a Mac on the same home network as the iPad.

Free is good, but reliability and a less fussy interface are worth money.

Not really much in remote control over just LAN that wouldn't work the same anywhere else, but you can check out this rundown.

The only one I have personal experience with is iTeleport for iPad. It isn't free, but I found it to be super-easy to set up and use.

Mocha VNC Lite, which is free, seems to work alright so far.

To get it to work with Apple’s Screen Sharing feature, you need to set up Screen Sharing in a specific way: see their Snow Leopard setup guide.

The interface isn’t as simple as it could be, and the setup guides don’t have the clearest writing (in English anyway), but once I found and followed the instructions everything worked fine.
