The idea of ‘the Cloud’ has made its way from tech-nerd drawing boards to near ubiquitous usage in a recent surge, though the technology has been in development for years. Beyond music and document sharing or remote storage, it’s natural that ‘cloud computing’ would be further applied to other functions. Enter Parallels Access, a new iPad app that allows users to access their PC or Mac computer applications wherever they are. The iPad native movements – swiping, tapping, pinching and pushing – are all applied to the application as if they were meant to be used on the tablet. Parallels Access seems a great tool for productivity, as it gives real-time access to all the files, documents, and songs that exist on your home or office solution. Parallels Access is available now for free on the App Store.
