If you’ve tried a desktop client for your mobile device, it was probably not the most streamlined affair. Many remote desktop apps don’t emphasize mobile interactions, after all. So they require lots of pinching and zooming just to get a good view of a file or app.

Parallels Access uses ‘Applification’ technology, so desktop applications appear like they’re native to iOS or Android devices. A single tap connects your device to your computer, along with access to its files and apps, in optimized screen resolution and with intuitive touch controls. A Parallels Access Universal File Manager helps control access via the cloud, on remote computers and local devices. There’s even an experimental control editor that allows for playing games.

Buy now: Get a year of Parallels Access for $9.99, that’s half off the usual price.
