“Parallels Access is an excellent way to make remotely controlling a Mac or PC from an iPad a frustration-free experience.” – Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal

"In short, Access does a lot more than just blast your computer’s screen onto the iPad’s. It truly does ‘applify’ your computer’s programs. It creates a smooth, logical hybrid of iPad and ‘real’ computer, in a way that the VNC apps do not. It works amazingly well." – David Pogue, New York Times

Customer Reviews

There are much better value remote desktop apps there

I tried 3 remote desktop apps: Parallels, RD Client (by Microsoft) and Jump. Deleted Parallels and RD Client as Jump provides much more customization for better value ($15). Here are few issues with Parallels: 1. No resolution adjustment options. For Ipad retina this is the must. But you’ll be stuck with one old resolution, grainy window with huge icons and menus. 2. Parallels on my desktop messes up desktop icons and actually puts them out of the monitor space. 3. Price – that’s the big one. With Parallels you’ll be stuck with $50/year, where you could just pay $15 for Jump and you set for forcible future.

Simply Amazing

I am able to use Source Tree and XCode on my iPad when in Stand-up meetings at work, while accessing my computer at home. This technology is totally amazing.

I was even able to play Blizzard's new game Hearthstones at work from my computer at home. Not only where the graphics smooth and playable, Parallels Access also plays the audio just as if I were playing at home with no noticeable lag or delays.

Again, simply amazing!

Parallels Access gave me the full-featured Microsoft Office for iPad and much more

I am amazed how Parallels Access gives me the full-featured Microsoft Office on my Windows PC via my iPad with iPad gestures and all of my Excel, Word, Power Point, Outlook and Access files and saves me $50 a year. It also lets me use all of my full-featured Windows apps including Photoshop and more. Priceless!
