GO-Global

GO-Global

GraphOn Corporation

The GO-Global App is a powerful, yet easy-to-use remote application delivery app that provides excellent Windows application performance and an increased level of usability on iPads, iPhones, and the iPod touch.
GO-Global customers can download the free GO-Global App to connect to GO-Global hosts and run Windows applications remotely from their iOS device. Applications appear as though they were running locally, retaining all features and functions.
If you are not an existing GO-Global customer with access to a host, you can still evaluate the GO-Global App. Simply download it to your iOS device and connect to GraphOn’s free demo server to access several popular Windows applications. No sign-up or registration required.
The GO-Global App maintains a high degree of usability by automatically touch-enabling Windows applications. Intuitive, multi-touch gestures allow users to interact naturally with applications running on the host, even though the device lacks a mouse and keyboard. The Auto-Zoom feature detects the section of the screen currently active in the application, and automatically zooms-in on that area, making it easier to tap user interface elements. The device’s onscreen keyboard opens automatically whenever an application can receive text input.
GO-Global uses GraphOn’s patented, high-performance RapidX protocol, providing fast and seamless access anywhere, even over low-bandwidth connections. It provides SSL security (up to 256-bit AES) and IPv6 support. And it eliminates the need for Citrix or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS).
For more information, please visit GraphOn’s website at GraphOn.com.
