Parallels ‘appifies’ your Windows Applications



Using an iPad on the go is all well and good, and many apps already exist that let you remotely login into your computer at your office or home, but to be fair, iPad’s screen just doesn’t do what a mouse can do, and most Windows and Mac applications, such as Office for example, are based around usage of a mouse.

This is where Parallels Access comes in, which allows you to remotely access your PC and Mac, and lets you use your PC in a way an iPad is supposed to be used.



The app can be used for £2.99 per month, or an annual subscription of £34.99.

“People from all walks of life including business travelers, people in professional services and company executives have told us how Parallels Access for iPad has made a difference by letting them get more done from anywhere, so they have more time to focus on what’s most important to them,” said Birger Steen, CEO of Parallels. “Today we are excited to give our Parallels Access customers even more features, languages and subscription options so they can enjoy the full benefits of today’s mobile lifestyle.”

All this comes with the latest update of Parallels Access, which brings a load of new features:

 ·         Full support for remote computers running Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 as well as Macs running Mavericks, Mountain Lion and Lion

·         Localisation in 11 languages — In addition to English and German, Parallels Access now supports Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese

·         iOS 7 redesign — Enjoy the latest iPad OS updates from Apple when you use Parallels Access

·         Single port connection — Parallels has now made it easier to work within certain corporate networks.

Parallels Access lets people use native iPad gestures even in applications not designed for iPad. With Parallels Access, just tap right to what you need to get done, in any Windows or Mac application, switch between desktop applications with ease, and leverage SmartTap and magnifying glass to tap with precision inside your desktop applications. Parallels Access works well even with low-bandwidth connections.
