Duration: 17:57

Show ref: SCOI0202

Twitter... you either love it or hate it! I'm strictly in the "love it" camp, but have been disappointed by the lack of updates to my favourite Twitter app - Tweetbot for iPad.

Parallels Access for iOS

Date: 6th September 2014

Duration: 15:43

Show ref: SCOI0179

Parallels Access is a unique solution to the problems of remotely accessing your Mac from your iPad or iPhone.

There are plenty of remote access solutions out there (we've covered quite a few on ScreenCastsOnline) but there has never been a solution that solves the issue of trying to access a large, high resolution display from a device with a smaller screen. Most remote access apps will allow you to scale the desktop to full size, but then everything is too small to either see or control. Otherwise, you can zoom the screen up to full size on your iPad or iPhone, and then end up scrolling everywhere.

Parallels Access gets around both these problems by allowing your Mac apps to appear just like iPad or iPhone apps, each app taking up the full iPad or iPhone screen. You really need to see it in action to see how different (and how effective) this is, compared to other remote access applications.
