Citrix bows new GoToMyPC app for Android
Citrix has rolled out a new version of its Android client for the popular service/product, GoToMyPC. Available for tablets and Kindle Fire devices alike, the new app lets users work on PC and Mac from mobile, in an experience not all unlike a remote-control. As is the case with other versions of the app, the GoToMyPC app is free of charge but requires a GoToMyPC subscription for your host Mac or PC. Once you download the app on your device you open the app, log in, select the host computer and connect.
