Parallels launches Android and iPhone versions of Parallels Access remote access app

Last August, Renton-based Parallels launched Parallels Access, an iPad app that allows users to tunnel into their Mac or Windows-based PC, and then remotely use those apps on the iPad as if those apps were made for the iPad.
