Parallels Access offers iPad users a touchnative virtual machine handson

Many attempts at tablet-friendly remote desktop still present a traditional desktop to the user; they deliver a lot of control, but they’re unwieldy on touch-only devices. Parallels’ just-unveiled Access client for the iPad could provide a simpler, more consistent experience. Rather than recreate the full desktop of a host Mac or Windows PC, Parallels Access provides a streamlined app launcher with controls that are largely iOS-native. Text selection, gestures and even multitasking behave much like they normally would on Apple’s tablets. The approach sounds intuitive, but is it worth Parallels’ $80 yearly subscription fee? Read our hands-on after the break to find out. %Gallery-slideshow73454%
