Citrix brings Windows applications to Android (VIDEO)

Citrix held their iForum 2009 this week in Singapore.  Among the announcements came news that Citrix was working on their Receiver application for Android.  Citrix specializes in virtualization and remote access software for business.  This allows a central server to deliver applications over the internet to a number of devices.  Citrix Receiver is currently available for iPhone.

Citrix Receiver is a new lightweight software client that makes accessing virtual applications and desktops on any device as easy as turning on your TV. See how it works. Much like a satellite or cable TV receiver in a broadcast media service, Citrix Receiver allows IT organizations to deliver desktops and applications as an on-demand service to any device in any location with a rich “high definition” experience.

Check out the video of Microsoft Word running on an Android phone.

In a former life I used to configure Citrix servers and I can’t say I miss it.

    Interesting. We’re rolling SAP out either this year or early next year at my work. I’ll have to bug my IT coworker to get me hooked up so I don’t have to spend my day at my puny desk.

    sooo nice but how it is possible…..? Its Imaging!!! is there any specific technology for doing this…

  10. Tedd FoxGuest 6 years ago

    It is via Citrix XenApp technology. It virtualizes the application from a XenApp server. This way there is centralized administration and the application (word for instance) can run on a number of devices.

    this is not running windows apps on android!! the “receiver” is connecting to a server/pc running the windows app. the windows app is not running on the device itself.
    you can edit/create a word document offline.
