Citrix Receiver and iPad
Posted by decipherinfosys on May 31, 2010
A friend of mine asked yesterday how he can go about accessing his windows environment using his newly purchased iPad. Or is it that he can use iPad only for personal use and not for professional use since his work environment is all predominantly windows based. Luckily, their IT uses Citrix for their VDI (Virtual Desktop Interface). So, all he really needed was the Citrix receiver for the iPad. The citrix receiver is essentially a lightweight client that makes accessing virtual desktops and applications a simple point and click operation.
Here are some links demonstrating how to use the citrix receiver to access an application or your desktop and run your windows applications over there:
Couple of videos demonstrating the usage of Citrix Receiver (on iPad as well as iPhone) – here.

So, if you have this kind of an infrastructure, you can use your iPad for not only personal use but also for professional work. Have fun 🙂
