Parallels Mobile App Brings Windows To Your iOS Device

Illustration for article titled Parallels Mobile App Brings Windows To Your iOS Device

Parallels users, listen up! To accompany the recently-released Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac, the Parallels peeps have released Parallels Mobile, a free app that lets users poke around on their Windows machines right on their iPhones and iPads.


As you can see in the demo video, and as you'd expect, there's a little bit of lag involved, but otherwise you can start, stop, and access all the virtual machines you've set up through Parallels Desktop right from your iOS device. That means printing things to connected printers, checking what's up in Outlook, and, yes, seeing all those lovely Flash elements on all your favorite websites. Just don't expect them to be that snappy. The app is free, so if you're a frequent Parallels user it's definitely worth a look. [iTunes]


I may be wrong about this, but with the release of Parallels 5, they had this already.

I'm positive I've done this a while ago.

Yup. There it is. Parallels Mobile, sitting in the multitude of APPs I've downloaded.

So, this isn't really new, but a refresh.
