Three weeks after Amazon announced Amazon WorkSpaces for AWS customers to create virtual desktops on various devices, the e-commerce giant has now launched an app specifically for iPad users.

Amazon WorkSpaces was unveiled at AWS re:Invent last month, and basically recreates the desktop experience in the cloud, meaning that the same experience can be delivered to a user on any compatible device without the company worrying about deploying hardware or installing software on each machine.

Before today, it was only available via computers and Android through the Amazon Appstore. Although one has been promised for Android through Google Play too, it isn’t forthcoming as of yet. Amazon WorkSpaces for iPad is available to download now.
