Parallels Access it is not a new application. Actually, it was already available for iPad, and it allowed both controlling a Windows computer and a Mac from the Apple tablet. However, the big news has arrived now, when the launch of the application for both Android and iPhone has been announced. We can now control the Windows PC or Mac from Android, or even from iPhone.
The news is important because despite already having applications of this type, such as Google’s Remote Desktop, Parallels Access is probably the service developed by the best development team when it comes to remote control of computers. They are the creators of the prestigious Parallels Desktop, an application that can be used to virtualize Windows or Mac on computers that have the opposite operating system pre-installed. Even Apple recommends it as software to be able to install Windows on Macs. It is not uncommon, therefore, that the launch of this application for both Android and iPhone is great news.
The application not only allows us to view on the smartphone screen what is on the computer screen, but it also has optimized application menus so that we can run those apps from the mobile without any problem. Obviously, the operation of Parallels AccessAlthough it is good, it still has the problems that we find when we are not using the computer directly, so there will be a certain delay in the execution of the actions with respect to the moment we click on the screen. However, it is most likely that Parallels Access be the best system available right now to use your computer remotely.
Of course, it is not only the best, but it is not free either. Although we can use it for free for two weeks, the cost is $ 20 per year, which will allow us to manage a maximum of five computers. It is essential to have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or a more updated version. The application is free. If we want to opt for a free application, it is always possible to install Google’s Remote Desktop.
