Wyse PocketCloud is one of the most popular mobile remote desktop applications that allow end users to access Windows PCs, Remote Desktop Services and virtualized desktop infrastructures based on the Microsoft RDP protocol. It's the only client that is VMware Ready Certified for VMware View available for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
