Microsoft's Remote Desktop Client for iOS is available!

Last week Microsoft announced the upcoming RDP clients for iOS, OSX and android. Also see Microsoft to introduce Remote Desktop app for iOS, OS X and Android!

The RDP client for iOS is now available and can be downloaded from the store. This blog post is a first glance at the client.

The client can also be used to retrieve resources by specifying a URL, this the same (RD Web Access) url that is used by the Control Panel RADC applet as well as the Modern UI Remote Desktop client.

After logging we have a RDP session available (in my case on an i-Phone)

I’ll write a more detailed blog post once I;ve had a chance to play with it some more. But so far, it looks great!
