Microsoft Launches Remote Desktop App for iOS and Android

Microsoft Launches Remote Desktop App With Windows 8.1 for iOS and Android for accessing and managing all your remote connections in the most efficient and simple manner.

Microsoft just released the remote desktop app for Android and iOS which is now available for download. Microsoft Remote Desktop app is available for iPad, iPhone and Android phones and tablets. With this, you can connect to a remote PC or your work resources from anywhere in the world. People can connect to their home or official PC using this new app. You can experience the power of Windows with RemoteFX in a Remote Desktop client which is designed to get your work done wherever you are.

Microsoft had announced these apps few days back. Now they are available with Windows 8.1 release.This app works in such a way that you can easily access Windows 8 and all the touch based features from your iPhone, iPad or Android tablet/phone.

There are many companies that provide remote desktop access to Windows desktops, such as Teamviewer, Citrix and Logmein to name a very few. Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) requires enterprise management to make it work. RDC requires a Remote Desktop Gateway(RDG) using a fully qualified domain, and the connection depends on Network Layer Authentication (NLA). In short this means that without Windows Server 2012 r1/r2 server or Windows Server 2008 r1/r2 server, the user's desktop data and applications are as far away from phone or tablet access as they ever have been.

Features of Microsoft Remote Desktop App:
1. Using Remote Desktop Gateway,access to remote resources.
2. It manages all remote connections from the connection center.
3. Secure connection to all your data and applications with breakthrough NLA Technology (Network Layer Authentication).
4. Multi-touch experience with RDP (remote desktop protocol) and RemoteFX supporting Windows gestures.
5. High quality sound and video streaming with improved compression and bandwidth usage
6. Easy and simple connection to remote monitors or projectors for presentations.
