Parallels Access now available on the Android OS

Parallels Access

Parallels Access is a very popular app on iOS that allows you to run Windows and Mac apps on your iOS device. Using your PC or Mac as a server, your iOS device would be able to run desktop apps with Parallels Access, and with control your PC or Mac using your iOS device, as long as your PC or Mac was running as a server. Finally, after a long wait and many come-close and ever some better knock-off apps, Parralells Access is available on the Android OS.

The app is free to download, but it does require a ($19.99/year) membership to actually use, after a 2-week trial. Considering all of the other apps on the Play Store, along with some basic root features, the fact that the app comes with an annual price tag might be a huge turn-off for many Android users. Yet Parallels is a very reputable remote desktop developer and it’s probably one of the best remote desktop services available at the moment.

The remote desktop options are far from perfect, but many do require this service, and if you do Parallels should be a huge must-try on your list.
