OnLive Desktop for iPad Now Available on App Store
OnLive's virtual Windows 7 / Office app for the iPad has arrived on the App Store. As we reported earlier this week, OnLive Desktop offers iPad users access to full-featured versions of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The applications are running on OnLive's servers and streamed to your iPad.
OnLive offers a number of plans for the service, including a Free service as server capacity is available. Paid accounts will take priority over free accounts.
Existing OnLive customers can sign in with their existing accounts and new users may sign up for a free account -- though account activation seems to be throttled and may be delayed.
As with their gaming service, performance can be subject to a number of factors, including internet speed and proximity to servers. [App Store]
