Citrix Takes Virtualization, Conferencing Tools to iPad

Citrix has released versions of its GoToMeeting and Receiver applications for iPad. Both are available now at no charge.

Citrix Receiver is a tool that allows users to access their virtualized Windows applications (via XenApp or XenDesktop) through their Apple iPad or iPhone. It also lets users access and view Adobe Flash- and Microsoft Silverlight-based Web sites.

The Citrix GoToMeeting app allows users to access GoToMeeting Web conferences. The features include:

  • Support for viewing a wide range of presentation materials, including slideshows and spreadsheets;
  • The ability for users to join a meeting from an e-mail invitation;
  • Support for zooming on materials using gestures; and
  • Support for audio participation via the iPad's microphone.

Citrix Receiver is also available for iPhone. Version 2.2 for iPhone was released today, adding improvements to stability and session launch times, according to Citrix. GoToMeeting was not available for the iPhone as of this writing.

Citrix Receiver and GoToMeeting for iPad are available now at no charge. Citrix Receiver requires XenApp or XenDesktop. GoToMeeting for iPad requires "the latest version" of the GoToMeeting server. Further information can be found within the App Store here.
