With Microsoft, Nokia, and Citrix teaming to make it happen….it’s for real!

Receiver for Windows Phone 8 is in the Windows Phone Store today.Receiver on Win Phone 8

And it’s cool. Check your email, review documents, tune into project dashboards, and approve expenses …all on the go.  Connect to your virtual desktops and apps at the touch of a finger.  Use the new pinch and zoom feature to view the information you need. Use the App bar buttons to hide or show the menu, return to the Receiver home page, switch between running apps, hide or show the keyboard, and toggle between panning/zooming and app scrolling.

It works just like other Windows Phone 8 apps and other Receivers. When used with the Citrix Mobility Pack, Receiver automatically displays the device keyboard when an editable field has the focus. And, the desktop session scrolls if needed to make the input area visible.

It works with Citrix XenApp 5 and up, XenDesktop 5.6 and 7, VDI-in-a-Box 5.3, StoreFront 1.2 and 2.0, Web Interface 5.4, Access Gateway 9.3 and 10, as well as Netscaler Gateway 10.1.  System requirements and configuration are fully covered in eDocs.

Windows Phone 8 brings you closer to the people, places, and things you care about and now it brings you closer to the apps and data you care about.  It’s taken a lot of work to create this new Receiver for this exciting platform that will only grow in popularity. We’re eager to have you try it and  hear about your experiences.
