  • Use all the time

    By EmporioKeys
    I think this is a great app, for the most part it is fast, reliable, intuitive and mostly just works. devs: here’s a wish list 1- lock computer when accessing remotely This does nothing of the sort, it simply turns off the client computer’s screen backlight. Either lock it properly or actually be honest in the description 2- please add mouse support for iPad. This would make it the ultimate thin client. TTFN Ant
  • Better pricing than other reviews

    By jonsnowboard
    I won’t re-hash the good functionality summaries provided in other reviews - this seems one of the best Remote Desktop products designed to allow you to make the most of your iPad functionality without having a mouse. I would like to state that the pricing seems much better than in other reviews - I guess parallels listed to feedback. GBP £14.99 per year or £2.29 per month to connect to up to 5 remote machines.
  • Terrible

    By Jrmchuk
    This is expensive, sluggish, limited options, often doesn't connect so end up using teamviewer which is free and much better.
  • Stopped working

    By RyannLilMonster
    Hasn't worked in the last 3 months. Only shows a black screen when connected.
  • A rare find

    By jmsehrrsn
    I never give five star ratings. Never. That is until now. For years I battled with Screens Connect - a very worthy contender to Parallels Access - but it was a very hit and miss affair. I now regret not finding Parallels Access sooner. I have three Apple Mac computers, a MacBook Pro at home and an iMac and MacPro in my office in town. My productivity has increased considerably since being able to access all three machines via my iPhone and iPad without any connectivity issues. None whatsoever. I like the innovative approach to displaying the remote computer's desktop to mirror the layout as if it were the home page of your device. That is not only effective but a classic example of design creativity. Another benefit is to have my two office machines back online via my MBP - for some reason the Screens software was preventing me using my MBP's remote access facility. If I had to offer any criticism it would be the screen of the iPhone really is too small to carry out lengthy, complex work but the fact it's at all possible is extraordinary - even with audio playback from the remote machine. So much so, it's a criticism not really worth quibbling over. There are some whispers about security but I'm not overly concerned. My machines are heavily password protected and quite frankly, I'll take the risk. Those determined to hack a machine will do so anyway, with or without without Parallels. So well done Parallels Access team. I hope you've won some top accolades for this fine piece of work.
