The new Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac looks really good. It’s got 80 new features and some major speed improvements over its previous version. Here’s the one new feature that sounds the best of all to me:
New! Parallels Mobile App
Enjoy full access and control of your virtual machine from wherever you are with our new iPhone/iPad app. Access and use programs in a virtual machine remotely, even if you are not on the same network as you Mac.
Yes! A free companion, universal app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. I run one essential Windows app on my MacBook Pro (a blog editing app) – so this ability to work with a VM from my iPad is a dream of a feature. I’ve downloaded the 14-day trial of Parallels Desktop 6 and can’t wait to try this out.
Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac is priced at $79.99 for new users and $49.99 for upgraders. For more info or to purchase or download a trial, go here:
