While Microsoft celebrates 1 million iOS and Android downloads of their free remote desktop app, which conspicuously misses a Windows Phone app, 2X Software saw an opportunity to promote their own Windows Phone RDP app.
The company , a claimed global leader in virtual desktop and application delivery solutions, today announced the launch of their free 2X Client for RDP / Remote Desktop on Windows Phone. The 2X Client for RDP / Remote Desktop is a free application which is already available on Windows Desktop, Mac, Android, iOS and Blackberry operating systems. The award winning application has been downloaded more than 5 million times and holds an average 4.5 out of 5 stars-rating in the major app marketplaces.
“The 2X Client for Windows Phone completes the circle of remote desktop products we provide to end users. Having already deployed solutions for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Blackberry we decided the next logical step was to cater for the Windows Phone market. With roughly a 10% market share worldwide, Windows Phone has a large enough customer base for 2X to serve. Our goal is to provide secure, mobile solutions to enable our users to be productive at anytime, anywhere. I’m pleased with the release of the 2X Client for Windows Phone, as it has led us one step closer to our target,” said Nikolaos Makris, CEO 2X Software
The 2X Client for Windows Phone provides users with the ability to stay connected to their home or office Windows PC. The 2X Client allows you to simply, and securely, connect via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to your remote Windows desktop and applications whenever you want, wherever you are.
Additionally, you can experience the full benefits of published remote Windows desktops and Microsoft applications by connecting to 2X ApplicationServer XG.
