You don’t need pricey third party RDP apps anymore. Microsoft has finally released a Remote Desktop app for iPhone and iPad. The features are:
- Access to remote resources through the Remote Desktop Gateway
- Rich multi-touch experience with remote desktop protocol (RDP) and RemoteFX supporting Windows gestures
- Secure connection to your data and applications with breakthrough Network Layer Authentication (NLA) technology
- Simple management of all remote connections from the connection center
- High quality video and sound streaming with improved compression and bandwidth usage
- Easy connection to external monitors or projectors for presentations
The price is good: free. And all the gesture stuff works – now I don’t feel stupid for swiping from the right on an iPad :)
