Citrix launches iPad apps

Bringing business applications to device

We didn't have to wait long. Citrix has released two apps for the iPad: Citrix Receiver and GoToMeeting.

The company had already trailed Citrix Receiver as a release but the GoToMeeting app is newThe Receiver App has been designed to help iPad users use their workplace applications online. It will allow multi-tasking, something that the iPad can't do, and support Flash. GoToMeeting has been offered to support collaborative working, a major theme for many vendors this year.

Harry Labana, CTO of Citrix's desktop and application virtualisation division said that companies were looking for ways to bring business applications on to the device. He added the Citrix had looked at using GoToMeeting internally and thought that it was an ideal fit. He said that it played to iPad's strengths. "I think the jury's still out whether the iPad is going to be a great content creator but it's certainly going to be a great content viewer," he said.

He added that the Citrix Receiver app would be great for workforces who wanted to "unshackle apps". He said that the company had already seen interest from many organisations, especially in healthcare - including the NHS. "One medical company said that Citrix Receiver would be cool as their sales force could use iPads as demonstration tools to doctors."

The Citrix Receiver and Citrix GoToMeeting Apps for iPad are available for free from the App Store on iPad.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
