VMware Horizon Client
By VMware, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
VMware Horizon Client for iOS makes it easy to work on your VMware Horizon virtual desktop and hosted applications from your iPhone or iPad, giving you on-the-go access from any location.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A VMware Horizon virtual desktop or hosted application is required to use the VMware Horizon Client for iOS. Contact your IT department for further assistance.
NEXT GENERATION OF MOBILE CONNECTION EXPERIENCES – Available with Horizon 7 and later
The VMware Blast Extreme remote experience protocol in Horizon 7 is designed and optimized for the mobile cloud users. Blast Extreme leverages builtin H.264 hardware decoder to deliver the best remote experience while optimizing battery consumption.
LEAVE THE DESKTOP BEHIND WITH HOSTED APPLICATIONS
VMware Horizon 6 and later supports hosted applications in addition to virtual desktops. With hosted applications, leave the desktop behind, jump directly to your apps, and run them like local iOS apps.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS - Available with Horizon View 5.2 and later.
Unity Touch bridges the gap between your touch screen and your Windows applications. With Unity Touch, you can easily browse, search, and open Windows applications & files, choose favorite applications and files, and switch between running applications all without the Start Menu or Task Bar.
Use an external monitor or AirPlay and your iPhone or iPad display turns into a trackpad / keyboard while the external screen shows your VMware Horizon desktop.
The adaptive capabilities of the Blast Extreme and PCoIP display protocol make your virtual desktop fast and responsive regardless of whether you are connecting over your corporate WiFi network or over cellular connection at a local café.
IMPROVED - SECURE FROM ANY LOCATION
At your desk or away from the office you’re always secure with VMware Horizon. Leverage smart card authentication with the Biometric Associates baiMobile 301MP smart card reader. Use the integrated RSA soft token and you don't even need to leave the VMware Horizon client to enter your RSA SecureID token for login.
Individual users of the VMware Horizon Client for iOS should contact their internal IT help desk or visit http://www.vmware.com/go/view. Only Support Administrators listed on a Basic or Production Support contract for VMware Horizon may log a service ticket with VMware Technical Support

Works as intended
This app needs two things to be near perfect. And to me they're painfully obvious omissions:
Touch ID to access servers. Kind of crazy that this is not already here.
The little option bubble in full screen view mode always defaults to the same obnoxious place once you're connected. It'd be really nice if it would just remember where I put it last (out of the way) when I finish a session.
Still won't remember touchpad settings!
After all this time, I still have to enable on-screen touch pad EVERY time I connect. Remembering preferences seems like a really basic thing. It would be great if this would support the Citrix X1 and/or Swiftpoint GT Mouse API like other thrid party apps such as Jump RDP and Citrix.
Keyboard doesn't work
It's great unless you want to use the keyboard function. Great virtual desktop with no typing capacity.
