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.
ENHANCED USER EXPERIENCE
The VMware Blast Extreme protocol used with Horizon 7 is designed and optimized for mobile users. Blast Extreme leverages H.264 hardware decoding to deliver the best remote experience while reducing power 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 and run applications like local iOS apps.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
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.
With an external monitor or AirPlay, 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 a cellular connection at a local café.
SECURE FROM ANY LOCATION
Whether you’re 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 for simpler access.
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

Takes full advantage of iOS
It feels like I have a Windows machine on my iPad! There IS and onscreen keyboard. Just touch the little round circle on your screen. Split screen is supported which makes the iPad version more powerful than the Mac version in some ways.
Been using this for VDI connectivity back to my VM on my iPhone and iPad. Both work great and this is the best Remote Desktop client I have used on iOS. Really makes leaving the laptop behind possible.
It would be great to support Touch ID for logins to speed up reconnecting.
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.
