Parallels Mobile App Brings Windows To Your iOS Device [Apps]

"Parallels

Parallels users, listen up! To accompany the recently-released Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac, the Parallels peeps have released Parallels Mobile, a free app that lets users poke around on their Windows machines right on their iPhones and iPads.

""

As you can see in the demo video, and as you'd expect, there's a little bit of lag involved, but otherwise you can start, stop, and access all the virtual machines you've set up through Parallels Desktop right from your iOS device. That means printing things to connected printers, checking what's up in Outlook, and, yes, seeing all those lovely Flash elements on all your favorite websites. Just don't expect them to be that snappy. The app is free, so if you're a frequent Parallels user it's definitely worth a look. [iTunes]

App Sync options for iTunes 10

Despite of Ping added to iTunes, the UI for of new iTunes also changed, the left side changed all to Grey colour, all icons and text also changed.  However, one more thing changed for iTunes 10 is the app sync option.

On the iTunes 9, you can search app at the top of the menu of apps list.  Now on iTunes 10, there’s no more search box, but you can sort it by different categories and you can now only select “show only iPad apps” option in the menu as well. There’s less painful if you need to reinstall iPad apps on your iPad now.

Chrome to iPhone Sends Links to your iOS Device from Chrome [Downloads]

chrome-to-iphone.jpgChrome: The Chrome to iPhone extension adds a handy button to your Google Chrome toolbar that, when clicked, quickly shares your current URL between your desktop browser and iOS device.

The extension attempts to mimic the functionality of the even better Chrome to Phone extension for Android devices, and for the most part, it does a pretty good job. The two main differences: 1 Chrome to Phone allows you to send links, maps, and selected text or phone numbers to Android and 2 automatically detects that youve been sent content and opens the corresponding application maps, browser, etc.. Chrome to iPhone only works with URLs, and you have to manually launch a desktop shortcut to access the URL you were sent.

That said, its still simple, convenient, and clever. Youve got to follow a simple setup process on your iOS device, and once you have, youre ready to roll. Basically the tool creates a shortcut to a static URL on your desktop, and that URL redirects to whatever URL you last posted using Chrome to iPhone.

Chrome to iPhone is a free extension, works wherever Chrome does.

Twitters Tweet Button Comes to the Browser

src=http://ping.fm/h6lZj

Twitter has released a browser-based tweet button that provides a simple way for Twitter users to click to share the web page theyre on with followers.

Twitter users can drag the �Share on Twitter� bookmarket to their browsers bookmarks bar � all major browsers are supporter.

A click of the button opens a new window with the web page title and shortened URL pre-populated in the customizable tweet field. Twitter is using its own t.co URL shortener to shorten the links users share on Twitter via the bookmarklet.

The bookmarklet addition is a minor one. For years, third-party applications and clients have offered bookmarklets for faster sharing. Still, the update is convenient for those who want to share web pages not already using the official Tweet Button and who prefer to use Twitter.com rather than a client like Tweetdeck.

Yahoo Mail Joins the iPad with HTML5 Support

src=http://ping.fm/jEtCkIf you use Yahoos email service to keep up with everything around you, now you can visit the Yahoo Web Mail service from your iPad. Yahoo just launched a version of their site thats been designed to fit in with your iPad, including portrait and landscape support, scrolling up and down your messages list and more.

The new HTML5-based interface is similar to the recently launched version of Yahoo Mail for the iPhone and iPod Touch. To access the Yahoo Mail service on your iPad doesnt require any software downloads. All you have to do is simply launch the Mobile Safari browser on your iPad and point to the Yahoo Mail Web site mail.yahoo.com to see it in action.

The new web interface supports message searching and organizing, viewing attachments in-line, and will also include local caching, which allows you to access and search your messages when an Internet connection isnt available to you. You can also search through your inbox using full search, personal folders or smart folders with messages from your most important contacts.

A few features arent supported yet on the new HTML5-based interface. For example, you cant attach a signature, photo, or video to an outgoing message like you can with the Yahoo native e-mail app. However, the new web interface added a fancy feature to handle incoming media. If you get a message with photo attachments, the Web client lets you swipe through them like you would within the iPads Photos application.

Freekade, the iPad arcade cabinet, goes up for auction (video)

What’s the date today, middle of August? Great, so we can now say with scientific certainty that it takes four and a half months to bring an excellent April Fools’ idea to market. That’s the total gap in time between the unveiling of the jokey iCade by the writers at ThinkGeek and the “for auction” sign going up on the Freekade arcade cabinet. This nostalgia-infused iPad accessory has now added a veneer of style to its retro control scheme, with “walnut effect” sides and a matte black finish. It interfaces with your slate via Bluetooth and (provided you’ve done the jailbreaking jig) will play along with NES, SNES and PSX emulators obtainable from the Cydia store. You’ll find its latest demo video after the break and can track the auction’s progress at the source link below.

Yahoo! Mail Looking Good on the iPad with HTML 5

If you are using Yahoo mail you just upgraded!

While you can obviously set up a Yahoo! mail account with Mail on your iPad and avoid opening Safari altogether (and push too) Yahoo! is still stepping it up with a HTML5 enhanced version of Yahoo! Mail and it looks pretty.

From the Yahoo Mail blog:

  • Faster and more reliable: If you’re offline, Yahoo! Mail uses local caching capabilities to help you access and search your messages even without an Internet connection.
  • Smart: You can find and organize your messages using Full Search, personal folders and Smart Folders with messages from your most important contacts and optimized views for photos and file attachments.
  • Feature Rich: View rich photo attachments in their full form, or as previews directly in the inbox view. Also includes a dual-pane view to make reading and organizing a breeze.

The new Yahoo! Mail experience will be available globally to anyone who has an iPad. So if you do have one, simply open up Safari and head on over to http://mail.yahoo.com to try it for yourself.
