Parallels Mobile adds iOS 5 support, fixes scrolling issues

Updated

Parallels has updated Parallels Mobile, its iOS remote control app for Macs running Parallels Desktop, adding iOS 5 and third-generation iPad compatibility and several UI improvements. Parallels Mobile allows users to control both the host Mac and any Parallels virtual machines running on it remotely from an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. The updated version fixes problems with scrolling on both Windows and Mac, allowing a two-finger gesture to be used to scroll properly within windows, particularly for Lion users. Support for international keyboard layouts is now available when working in Mac applications and and Mac sign-on screens have been re-designed to simplify the connection process. Parallels Mobile is available from the App Store for a limited time price of $5.
