Supports iPad, iPhone, iPod touch
In tandem with today's launch of Desktop 6 for Mac, Parellels has released an updated Parallels Mobile app. Compatible with the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, the title lets users tap into Windows programs running on a remote Mac equipped with Desktop 6. Wi-Fi and 3G connections are supported, and users can start, stop and reset virtual machines.
As necessary, a machine can be optimized for speed or graphics quality. The app has several limitations however; it is only compatible with Desktop 6 for example, and Windows 7's Aero effect does not work. Sound is completely absent from running apps, and games, video and 3D may run slowly. In extreme cases, some software may not display any image. The app is a free download.
