VMware brings out View client for iPad

updated 09:45 am EST, Wed March 9, 2011

Operates over 3G, Wi-Fi

VMware has released View for iPad, a new remote access client. The app connects to virtualized Windows desktops hosted through VMware's full-scale View software. It operates over 3G or Wi-Fi, and is claimed to maintain quick response by way of the PCoIP protocol.

In normal use the app relies on various multi-touch gestures, such as tapping to left-click or two-finger tapping to right-click. A keyboard can be brought up for text, and a trackpad enabled whenever more precise mouse control is needed. To reconnect to a desktop, users simply select one from a recents list.

The app is a free download, but requires connecting to a network running View 4.6, which is aimed mostly at the enterprise market. People may therefore need to coordinate with an IT department. iPads must be running iOS 4.2 or better.

    That could be useful, but...

    ... what I REALLY want is a native vSphere client application for Mac OS X!

    I feel dirty running Win7 in Fusion on my Mac. I think I would vomit if I saw Windows on my iPad.

    Apple - when are we getting Back To My Mac on iPad?
