Citrix is one of the few virtualization vendors that strongly believe in a future where data centers will be accessed through mobile devices.
The company started to tease about a presentation virtualization client for the iPhone in June 2008, announcing an official commitment in December 2008.

Today, finally, version 0.9.0 of the Citrix Receiver for the iPhone (codenamed project Braeburn) makes its appearance on the iTunes App Store:


Citrix did an amazing job to map the Windows applications commands to the iPhone interface and gesture model.
The company published a nice video about the integration that is really worth a look.

To further improve the mobile experience Citrix released a XenApp extension called Doc Finder that allows users to easily find, view, edit and send documents.
