Citrix Ports Apps to Apple iPad

GoToMeeting and Receiver are the Florida company's firsts for the new device.

Citrix Systems Inc. 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
  • Support for audio participation via the iPad microphone

Citrix Receiver requires XenApp or XenDesktop. GoToMeeting for iPad requires the latest version of the GoToMeeting server. Citrix Receiver is also available for iPhone. GoToMeeting was not immediately available for iPhone.
