    Parallels recently updated its Parallels Access app for iOS. The update adds a robust file manager, iOS file sharing features, support for both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and several other enhancements. For those of you who didn’t know, when the app was first introduced in 2013 as an iPad-exclusive app, it brought Windows and Mac virtualization to iOS, complete with natural navigation gestures and near-native performance. The company ended up rolling out a universal version of the app last June. The most recent update brings over a slew of improvements to the already built foundation.

    New features include a file-manager that allows users to transfer and store Mac or PC files to an iOS device. On the flipside, files stored locally can be sent to a remote computer for use with full-blown desktop apps. Furthermore, the company made sure that searching for files on remote computers is also a feature that comes built-in. The company even went as far as adding iOS extensibility options including inter-app file sharing and in-app viewing of documents stored in or create by other apps. Users are also given the option to view and copy files directly from their Dropbox and/or Google Drive accounts.

    Last but not least, the updated version of Parallels Access offers support for Apple’s latest big-screen iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets coupled with the usual minor performance improvements and bug fixes. Those of you interested in trying out Parallels Access can do so for free for to weeks with subscriptions starting at $19.99 for one year or $34.99 for two years.

    Subscription service? I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
