Microsoft logoMicrosoft is all set to launch their Remote Desktop app with the roll out of Windows Server 2012 R2, where it will be available not only on just Windows, Windows RT and OS X, but also in addition, iOS and Android sometime later in October. This would be the first time that such a popular remote desktop software has been made available to its rival mobile platforms.


Apart from that, a certain Michel Roth, who happens to be one of Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professionals, did claim that the OS X app has also undergone a major overhaul. Apart from that, we also know that the iOS version will offer support for both iOS 6 and 7 versions, while those who are running on the Android mobile operating system from Google will be able to play nice with the Remote Desktop app as long as they have Android Gingerbread running underneath the hood. It remains to be seen just when will Microsoft’s Remote Desktop roll out to the respective app stores, but why not making the same thing available to their very own Windows Phone 8 platform?

Controlling your desktop from your smartphone makes plenty of sense, and it would come in handy especially when you are working overseas, and would love to check out something on your local machine whenever you are out of the country. [Press Release]
