Fast Remote Desktop brings a Windows™ experience to the Apple iPad™, enabling mobile users to access home and work PCs on the go.

With our Fast Remote Desktop app, the iPad(tm) can now connect to a home or office Windows PC, allowing mobile workers access to their documents, Microsoft Office(r) applications and much more.

VDIworks, a virtual desktop software provider with a long history in centralized computing, announced the immediate availability of its new remote desktop technology for Apple iPad™ devices. Fast Remote Desktop is available for download from the Apple Appstore with immediate effect. The new app is based on VDIworks ground-breaking VideoOverIP remote access protocol and aims to deliver a superior Windows remote access experience to the popular Apple tablet.

Since its launch earlier this year, the Apple iPad™ has seen tremendous success with over three million devices sold in the first 80 days of general availability . Leading analyst firm, IDC, predicts that 46 million iPads™ will be sold by 2014, creating a large market for app developers working on unique and interesting capabilities for this platform. "The Apple iPad™ is a truly revolutionary device. Its size, capabilities, battery life and touch interface are ideal for computing on the go," said Amir Husain, President and CEO of VDIworks. "With our Fast Remote Desktop app, the iPad™ can now connect to a home or office Windows PC, allowing mobile workers access to their documents, Microsoft Office® applications and much more."

Since the new Fast Remote Desktop app is based on the VideoOverIP remoting protocol, the new app will be able to connect to any Windows PC or Windows virtual machine (VM) running the VideoOverIP host software. VDIworks has made the VideoOverIP host software available free of charge, with customers having the option to purchase iPad™, Windows and Linux clients. Since VideoOverIP works with physical PCs, VMware, Xen and Hyper-V virtual machines and numerous other hypervisors, corporations can use it to deliver a virtualized Windows PC experience to their remote workforce.

Fast Remote Desktop is available for download via the Appstore on your iPhone (Search for "Fast Remote Desktop") or from iTunes on your PC if you click here.
