    I got this app running on my iPad 2 and I have to admit, this is really cool.

    It gives you a scaled down version of what looks to be Win7 running a few important windows apps and the three main office programs. With the cloud storage they give you, you can actually do work on this. I have a Word document open, a powerpoint document open (one of mine), and WMP going in the background. All of it working just swimmingly. Oh..i'm using a bluetooth keyboard to type words into Word...but I do miss having a mouse or trackball. Windows touch interface is a bit of a problem, but not enough to not make this useful. It behaves in a very snappy manner.

    Heck, this makes an iPad into a Chromebook!!! If you're on-campus and have good wifi...this rocks.

    This may sound like a stupid question, but what is the name of the app? I probably just completely read over it but I don't see it in here and I really need an app like this. Thanks for your help!!

    That sounds like OnLive Desktop.

    While CloudOn gives you full Word/Excel/PowerPoint, it doesn't have a Windows desktop the way OnLive does.
