iPhone to Run Windows and Get Copy and Paste (It's Not What You Think)

Illustration for article titled iPhone to Run Windows and Get Copy and Paste (Its Not What You Think)

Windows will run soon on the iPhone using Citrix Receiver, a remote screen software that connects to a PC and gives you the illusion you are running Microsoft's operating systems, including copy and paste functionality.


Why is this useful? It will give you the ability to run full Windows apps in your iPhone over the network. According to Citrix, you will have full Windows capability, including cut and paste inside Windows. And while this is not the first remote screen application available for the iPhone, it is the first one which is actually supported by a big company, which will make corporations happy.

Our work Citrix solution works great.

The only issue I can foresee is usability on such a small screen. I logged in remotely on a netbook the other day and my usual 1280x1024 screen was downsized to fit the netbooks screen, making everything really compressed.

Maybe they'll make use of the pinch zoom to leave the desktop size at desktop resolution, and let you zoom in like you can on web pages in Safari?
