VMware View for iPad Screenshots


VMware View Client for iPad makes it easy to access your Windows virtual desktop from your iPad with the best possible user experience on the Local Area Network (LAN) or across a Wide Area Network (WAN).

IMPORTANT NOTE: VMware View 4.6.1 or VMware View 5 or later is required for the VMware View Client for iPad. Contact your IT department for further assistance.


Work on your Windows based VMware View virtual desktop right from your iPad giving you on the go access from any location. Support for the PCoIP display protocol means your desktop is fast and responsive regardless of where you are.

Feel right at home with support for native iPad gestures for quick and easy navigation around your desktop. Need to do something more complex? Call up the trackpad for better mouse targeting or the keyboard for efficient text input.

Tightly integrated with the VMware View for simple setup and connectivity. Quickly reconnect to your desktop by selecting it from the recent desktop list. Even easier with the newly integrated RSA soft token, you don't even need to leave the VMware View client to enter your RSA token for login.

The adaptive capabilities of the PCoIP protocol are optimized to deliver the best user experience even over low bandwidth and high latency connections. Improved performance available with VMware View 5 and later.

At your desk or away from the office youre always secure. Access your View desktop over WiFi or 3G and with tight VMware View integration your desktop is delivered securely to you wherever you are.

Use an external monitor or AirPlay in iOS 5 and the iPad display turns into a trackpad / keyboard while the external screen shows your View desktop!

Customer Reviews

New iPad Support (1 star)
While I see "Support for the New iPad" listed in the new features list... I notice a significant loss of resolution and sharpness on my 3rd generation iPad. As this app is my primary means for accessing VDI when outside of the office, I'm quite disappointed in this release. Related, much of the new UI is not optimized for the higher resolution screen... Come on VMware. Really?
