If you don’t have a XenApp infrastructure, you can’t use the Citrix Receiver described above. Fortunately, you can access many of the same capabilities with LogMeIn’s remote desktop access solution. You’ll need to install the LogMeIn software on your home or work PC and LogMeIn Ignition on your iPhone. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to connect to your PC from your iPhone, wherever you are, and access your documents or applications. You need a constant wireless connection for this solution (the faster the better), and you may have to do a lot of scrolling and zooming, but the cost is much less than the Citrix solution.
This powerful app uses your organization’s Citrix XenApp infrastructure to remotely access any Windows application or document from your iPhone. Whether you need to edit a document, approve expenses, or even join a webinar, you can do it all from your iPhone with Citrix Receiver. Of course, you’re limited by the iPhone’s screen size, which means you’ll have to do a lot of zooming and scrolling with some applications. And since the applications are located remotely, you’ll need a 3G connection or Wi-Fi for reasonable performance.
History tells us that brilliant ideas are sometimes written on a napkin or the back of an envelope.

You can also access notes and documents stored on your PC or Mac, whether you created them on your iPhone or not.

In this review, I list 10 of the top apps currently available that help make business better.

We all need to make presentations -- to our bosses, to potential clients, to colleagues, to sweethearts (or hopefuls). Since we all have to tell our stories or make our cases, we might as well do the job well.
Presenter Pro from Reximedia (available now through the App Store for $4.99) promises to help us make a good impression in the eyes other people, whoever they might be. How does it do that? By reminding us of what a great presentation can be.
We had a litle impromptu security-related contest this week to raffle off some free versions of SafeWallet for iPhone. An app from SBSH Software that will securely store all your critically private information.
3 lucky readers are going to win a copy of SBSH SafeWallet by giving up their iPhone security secrets. What am I blathering about? Well, I wanna know how you keep your iPhone data secure...?
