No matter how powerful our mobile devices are, for the foreseeable future there will be applications that require a desktop. For that reason, there are many remote desktop apps available for iOS. One of the standouts in that crowd is Parallels Access.
Parallels is no stranger to Apple and Mac, and that shows in this great remote desktop app. One of the standout features it that it makes your desktop apps feel and operate more like native iOS apps on your iPhone or iPad.
Our Deals site is offering a one year subscription to Parallels Access for $9.99.
Remote desktop apps are nothing new, but too many force you to endlessly pinch and zoom just to see what’s happening on your mobile device. Parallels Access is different. Parallels’ Applification™ technology lets you use all of your desktop applications as if they were native apps for your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. With a single tap, you can connect to your computer, access important files, and easily use your apps in full-screen and with intuitive touch controls. Walt Mossberg, Co-Founder, Recode: “There are a bunch of programs that claim to do this, but I have found that Parallels Access does it most smoothly and best of all of them…and I can recommend it.”
