Parallels Access 2.0

Parallels Access [1] app used to be available only on iPad. But with the launch of Parallels Access 2.0 last week, the app is now available on both Android and iPhone (Universal App).

For the unaware, Parallels Access app is a remote desktop app for Android and iOS that allows you to run any application from your Mac or PC, and it is designed to give those applications a native feeling on the mobile/tablet.

New in Parallels Access 2.0:

To recap, here are all the features of Parallels Access:

Parallels Access requires an annual subscription of S$25.98 and the Android [2] and iOS [3] app are all free. Each subscription enable you to access up to 5 computers. If you need to access more than 5 computers, you will probably need a business plan [4].

If you read my mini review on Parallels Access for iPad [5], I was not sold on the idea of a subscription based remote desktop app because I am using iTeleport [6] and the iTeleport iOS App just cost S$25.98 and it is a one time payment.

However, in recent days, my iTeleport keep getting connection issues and it is an on and off thing which is pretty frustrating. Because of that, I am beginning to like Parallels Access now and to add on to that, the File Browser feature in iOS is just pure awesomeness!
