Parallels on Tuesday updates its subscription based Remote Desktop App Parallels Access which is now available on iPhone. Parallels Access iPhone app also features new gestures and controls to support orientation on smartphones.
Parallels Access allows iPad (and now iPhone) users to access their Mac or Windows PCs on their tablets and smartphones remotely.
“Parallels Access received a tremendously positive reception from iPad users, and now we are extending our solution to millions of Android and iPhone users. While traditional remote desktop products are trying to show a large desktop on a small mobile device, we worked hard to make remote access from mobile devices a truly simple and effective experience,” said Jack Zubarev, president of Parallels.
You can also use an iPhone or iPad’s microphone on the desktop remotely for certain apps that may require them. Also, changing the screen resolution and waking up a sleep computer are also some newly added features.
The updated allows Facebook login integration and has a new and improved file browser which allows users to open files on their iPad or iPhone.
Parallels first launched the app as an iPad-only title in August 2013 and offered a new way to interact with Mac and Windows desktop applications on Apple’s tablet using gestures.
Parallels Access offers a 2-week trial for free. After the trial, subscription pricing starts at $19.99 per year for connecting up to 5 computers.
2-year subscription comes at a $29.99 or at a 33% discount off one-year pricing.
Parallels Access is now a universal app that’s available for free in the App Store. [Direct Link]
