Hot-e-V 1.0

This app from down under is currently the only iPad implementation of the RemoteFX client protocol -- an RDP replacement that leverages graphics processors inside the server to present rich, 3D graphics to thin clients. I’ve been doing a bit of testing and heavy graphics applications such as AutoCAD, Revit, and Matlab that run off the shared virtual machines as fast or faster than a dedicated workstation. I haven’t used it often because RemoteFX is currently a royal pain to get running on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. But when Windows Server 8 fulfills the promise of drop-dead easy RemoteFX implementation, I’m ready.

Price: $14.99 Developer: ThinLinX Compatibility: iPad only; iOS 4.3 or later
