Windows on ARMSummary: Users with ARM-based Windows RT devices can now try Microsoft's RemoteApp service to access remotely line-of-business apps.


Back in May at TechEd, Microsoft announced officially its RemoteApp service, aimed at allowing users to remotely access apps running on Azure.

At that time, the Softies made client apps for the service available for Windows, Mac OS X and Android.

On June 23, Microsoft added another client to the list: One for ARM-based devices running Windows RT.

RemoteApp -- codenamed "Mohoro," which is currently in preview -- isn't a streaming service like other desktop-as-a-service offerings. Instead, it allows users to remotely access line-of-business apps, including Microsoft's Office desktop apps, on their mobile devices. The final version of the RemoteApp service will be available before the end of calendar 2014, officials have said.
