Parallels recently released their Parallels Access app for iPhone and Android. Price is $20/yr.
They released a version for iPad a while back, which was nearly worthless to me since my iPad is almost never connected to the internet when I am away from home...but for iPhone it's a different story...here is my review of my experience using the app on trial mode from my iPhone as it relates to BG.
-Successfully launched Gridgammon and played a 5-pt match
-The inability to click on the dice to switch the order is even more annoying when using iPhone then when playing on a laptop. GG should fix this...but in the meantime, it was still possible (but annoying) to drag a checker using the iPhone interface.
-Launched XG and loaded the match, had XG analyze it, confirm donk status as per usual
-Stepping through errors on iPhone interface was horrendous...every move the software pops up all the options to cut/copy/paste/etc.
Overall, I thought the Parallels Access experience was great. I tested a few other pieces of software that I use that currently require a laptop and they all worked above my expectation. Lunchtime GG battles...hello.
