If you are thinking about moving to virtual desktop and wondering if you will be able to access the desktop via your Apple / IOS device – you have come to the right place.
Yes, your virtual desktop will work from a lot of different mobile devices and operating systems. Many of our clients use Apple devices which work great with your virtual desktop. The great thing is all of your normal virtual desktop applications, files, etc. are all accessible as long as you have an internet connection.
When might you use it?
If you are sitting in a meeting, a cab or waiting for a plane – maybe you need to edit a spreadsheet or send a critical sales document – either way – pull out your droid device – fire up your Cloudworks Virtual Desktop and everything is accessible.
What are the drawbacks?
If you are using an iPhone – the screen is small and it can be challenging to use a touch screen in that environment. Otherwise, if you are in pinch it will work great.
When shouldn’t you use it?
When you don’t have internet, driving, on a boat – seriously you are on a boat – stop working, or when the flight attendant tells you to put down electronic devices.
How do I install HVDI on an Apple?
The Apple Computer software installation process is basically identical to Windows PCs. You navigate to our login page, enter your credentials, the system checks for the Citrix App and you are asked to download and install it if you have not already done so.
One note about workstations…depending on your browser and/or system security settings, our auto-detect tool may be blocked from noticing the Citrix software on your system. If you have accessed your virtual desktop previously from the machine you are using and the system asks if you to install the software but you know you already have, you can click the checkbox on the request to let us know you have the software already installed on your machine and to proceed directly to your resources.
