Stellarium offers you the view of the entire night sky and you can simply point and click to send your scope to the desired location. I find this useful because I only have a limited view of the sky from where I typically observe, so I can choose targets which are visible in that patch. For astrophotography it's also quite useful as it can show you how you're tracking and other useful info. Having said all that, when I'm out doing visual I find it easiest just to use the scope's Go To remote as it requires the least amount of setting up and fiddling around with cables, laptop, table, software, etc.
