VMware Horizon Client
By VMware, Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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
What's New in Version 4.6.0
• iOS 11 support
• Change the VMware Blast network condition after you connect to a server
After you connect to a server, you can switch the network condition between Typical and Excellent if Typical or Excellent was selected before you connected to the server.
• Use the iPad onscreen keyboard in split mode with Horizon Client
You can use the iPad onscreen keyboard in split mode with Horizon Client when you connect to a server and when you are working in a remote desktop. When the onscreen keyboard is in split mode, the space between the two parts of the onscreen keyboard is transparent.
• Improved security
Horizon Client has been updated to support the SHA-256 cryptographic hash algorithm and the OpenSSL library is updated to version openssl-1.0.2l.
Promising, but lacks the basics for productivity
It connects very well and has great support for touch. The trackpad feature works great as well as being able to pinch to zoom on my desktop without affecting my work.
However (and it’s a big one), the app will not currently recognize an external keyboard’s Delete, Page Up/Down, Alt, Home, Insert, End, NumLock, or ANY of the Function (F1-F12) keys. Also, when attempting to use any key combination that includes the Alt key, it will not recognize the following keystroke as the appears that the Alt keystroke is being repeated instead of held down for a combination. Finally, not all Ctrl combinations work with an external keyboard (such as Ctrl+Enter). The only way to do any of these unsupported functions/key commands is to use the onscreen keyboard which is split between multiple menus and grids my production to a screeching halt.
Native support for an external mouse (USB or Bluetooth, only to control the Windows cursor) will need to be implemented as well for this to be a fully functional version of VM Ware.
I cannot use this app until it is updated to FULLY support an external keyboard with all of it’s possible commands and functions (the way it works on any other Remote Desktop app). Avoid until updated.
Cannot connect to Server
After updating to iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, I’m unable to connect to the server. Keep getting option saying “Unable to connect” and “View Certificate”. Not having any issues on Windows platform. Network Admin suggested it’s an app issue in both cases since it works on Windows.
Stop Disconnecting Me
Fix the constant disconnections. If I’m using the app it’s because I need to use it. I don’t need your app to monitor my data usage. Unnecessary, unacceptable and very time consuming to have to log back in every 30 minutes. Again if I’m on it I need it stop limiting me.
