Clients available for IOS 5.0+ and Android 2.2+

Setup

Note: Unfortunately, the official VMware Horizon View Client on IOS/Android does not support the display protocol used in MyVLab. If you wish to use MyVLab on one of these devices, PocketCloud Pro is the available client. This app does come at a cost of $15 however. We hope in the future to implement additional technologies to allow accessability from all mobile devices without this requirement.

Purchase and Download the PocketCloud Pro app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store

Launch the app

Select Skip Wizard at the prompt.
