Yesterday we heard about iOS getting an official Microsoft Remote Desktop (RemoteFX) app.  Today, I found that a version was also released for Android.

Features include:

  • Access to remote resources through your 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

I tried it out.  It works.  My high-res desktop looks tiny on my HTC One phone, but the zoom option makes is useful for quick operations.  This would be a much better experience on a 10” tablet.

For Mac OS X (10.6.0 or later) have been able to get an old version of Remote Desktop with Microsoft Office for Mac.  I read on MacRumours that there is an updated version offering:

  • Access to remote resources through the Remote Desktop Gateway
  • 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 multiple monitors or projectors for presentations
  • Print from Windows applications to any printer configured on your Mac
  • Access local files on your Mac from your Windows applications

I know nothing about the upgrade process for Mac users.
