Itbusiness.ca has a story today about something called Citrix Receiver that enables you to take your virtual office with you on your iPad, with one-touch, secure, real-time access to all of your Windows business applications, virtual desktops and documents, wherever you happen to be. For example, with just one tap you can read, create and share documents. Iâ€™m particularly impressed with how easy it appears to be to use Word on the iPad going by the video demo that you can view below.
Citrix says that Receiver is fully capable of handling resource-intensive apps on the iPad, such as the 3D medical application shown in the demo, all at the same high speed over any network connection.
As far as security is concerned, Citrix says that your sensitive data is protected by being stored on the corporate network, not on the iPad.
Although the Receiver app is free, you must be a customer of Citrixâ€™s XenApp on-demand application delivery solution in order to use it, so it's not really an app for the casual personal user.
