VMware announced the availability of VMware View Client for iPad on the Apple App Store for free. Enabling Apple iPad users to access their virtual Windows desktops, applications and data from anywhere, the new VMware View Client, in combination with VMware View, delivers a modern desktop optimized for the iPad's high-resolution Multi-Touch display.
VMware View Client for iPad features include:
- It's the first iPad app to deliver Windows-based virtual desktops while taking advantage of the superior user experience provided by PC-over-IP (PCoIP) display protocol, creating a highly responsive and flexible user experience.
- Custom gestures enable quick and easy navigation around the virtual desktop by taking advantage of iPad's Multi-Touch display. An innovative on-screen track pad lets users leverage a more traditional mouse interface with the iPad's keyboard for efficient text input.
- VMware View Security Server support for PCoIP allows for a simple, secure remote connection and authentication to a user's Windows desktop over a WiFi or 3G network. Reconnecting to a View Desktop2 is made even easier with the ability to select and connect to a list of recently connected desktops.
- Support for the iPad Keyboard Dock and Bluetooth keyboards makes text input even easier while the iPad VGA connector allows you to connect to an external monitor. VMware View Client for iPad supports iOS 4.2 and iOS 4.3.
