The device known as Parallels Access is about to bring desktop apps to your iPad. This will be quite a surprise for consumers who had been on the lookout for such a thing right from the start. There have been several attempts before but they have all failed. This time around however they have hit the sweet spot. The novel product known as a Parallels Access costs a cool $79.99 annual subscription. The fact that now you may “applify your universe” shows that the apps are native to the iPad. The program de-clutters the space by collecting all your apps on one format. The ephemeral feel of a native touch remains intact and it is one of the most-liked features.
If one of your fingers slips there is SmartTap and it will fix this problem in a jiffy. The aim is to reduce the frustration felt by the user. Its performance is such that it does respond to commands with fidelity. However, remote gaming is not what it was made for so steer clear of that area. As for the price, it may be a little too steep. At almost $80 it warrants a fat wallet to shell out the eight tens in order to purchase this fabulous facility. But then good things seldom come cheap.
Parallels' Chairman and CEO, Serguei Beloussov, said, "With the popularity of mobile devices skyrocketing, our customers overwhelmingly desire the ability to do more from anywhere without the restrictions that usually come from working remotely. With our new Parallels Mobile app and My Parallels service, we make it possible for Parallels Desktop 6 customers to access and utilize their Windows apps wherever they are."
