The iPad was revolutionary and is already an amazing success. That success is about to be turbocharged.
Back in the day, the original Apple II owed its first success to VisiCalc, software invented by Dan Bricklin and refined by Bob Frankston, that gave people a real reason to buy a personal computer. VisiCalc was the first spreadsheet program, a predecessor to Excel. It allowed anyone, no matter how mathematically challenged, to build self-calculating models and financial records on their desktop or kitchen table.
Today, millions of users rely on a Windows computer in the office or at home, but carry an iPad with them to the courthouse, on sales calls, to conferences, everywhere. Until today, they’ve been constrained: their Office programs have been inaccessible or inconvenient when away from their desktop computer or when their laptop is unavailable.
Parallels.com, the leading provider of emulation software the allows a Mac to run Windows, has just released a game-changing new app that allows an iPad to run any and all Windows programs remotely, seamlessly, in real-time. It’s called Parallels Access and it is truly amazing.
Here’s a 2:30 minute video showing Parallels Access in use. In this demo it’s operating across high speed WiFi, but we’ve tested it on ATT’s 4G system as well, where it is equally speedy.
Parallels Access is available on a 90-day for free trial basis, but I decided in just a couple of hours that the $80.00 per year cost is nothing compared to the benefit.
