Feb 04, 2015 At the beginning of December 2014 Citrix released the Receiver 4.2. One of the biggest (and most mentioned) improvements is the better start menu integration (If you want to know how to configure it read this blog article). The question now is: Is Receiver 4.2 a valid replacement for Receiver 3.x Enterprise? Citrix Workspace app is a new client from Citrix that works similar to Citrix Receiver and is fully backward-compatible with your organization’s Citrix infrastructure.

So how does Apple Vs Android when running Citrix as a desktop replacement if we utilise them (android or apple devices) as replacements to our traditional desktop or laptop device?

After recently getting access to the fantastic Citrix X1 mouse (thank you Citrix!) I decided to quickly put together the pros and cons of Android vs Apple when running the Citrix receiver (especially if you were thinking of using a touch device as a replacement to a desktop/laptop) when your device is paired with an external keyboard, (Citrix X1) mouse and screen.

Apple: Testing with iPhone 5 (iOS 8.1.3), iPad Air (iOS 8.1.2) coupled with a lightening to HDMI cable,

Android: Testing Samsung S5 Phone (SM-G900F running Android 5.0) and Samsung 7″ Tablet (SM-T210 running Android 4.4.2) coupled with a MicroUSB to HDMI adapter

Monitors: Dell 19” and 30″ external displays

The Android device natively supports a bluetooth keyboard and mouse (Citrix X1 mouse or not). The entire android device can be navigated using the keyboard and X1 mouse and the external screen resolution (usb to HDMI cable) reached a whopping 1920x1080p. The normal Citrix receiver worked flawlessly with the external mouse and keyboard and the external screen worked as independently from the Android device.

The Apple device was limited to the X1 mouse only, yet as fabulous as the new mouse is, it only worked in the remote Citrix session (could not interact with the rest of the phone) and the maximum resolution available from the iOS device for Citrix sessions was 1280×720 and 1024×768 for iPad Air

With the flexibility of choice and better external resolution offered from an Android device this would personally be my choice as the device to replace my work desktop or laptop, though as I use multiple monitors its not quite there yet for me! Iso 8601 utc format.

It isnice to actually have an option to use Apple devices thanks to the recent prototype of the Citrix X1 mouse.

I would love to hear your experience with Apple Vs Android especially in what scenarios you may be able to use these devices instead of traditional PC / Mac / Thin clients?
