You’ll soon be able to play with your Windows programs on your Apple portable device with an app from Parallels.

Announced at the DEMO Fall 2010 conference in Santa Clara, Calif, the new Parallels Mobile app will be free. It will allows users of Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac and Parallels Desktop 6 Switch to Mac Edition to use their iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch to access and utilize Windows applications running on a Mac from any network, from anywhere, at any time.

The app is available now.

Parallels also makes it possible for iPad users to do things like print, view Flash material, and use work programs like Outlook and Lotus Notes.

“With the popularity of mobile devices skyrocketing, our customers overwhelmingly desire the ability to do more from anywhere without the restrictions that usually come from working remotely,” said Serguei Beloussov, Chairman and CEO, Parallels. “With our new Parallels Mobile app and MyParallels service, we make it possible for Parallels Desktop 6 customers to access and utilize their Windows apps wherever they are.”
