    Theres a free Citrix app in the App Store. Works well.

    Just a bit of consumer advice for you. Prior to buying a $500 device, you should really look into whether or not it meets your needs and use cases. While there is a citrix app, if your corporate IT is not configured to accommodate it, you may be out of luck. Hopefully though it does work well for you.

    Although I did not buy mine for work, I can not access my job's Citrix Presentation Server either. It requires some tweaking of the code in order to access from any iOS device but my job is unwilling to do it. I'm pretty sure I can't access from a Mac as well. Again, not supported by my company's IT and they are unwilling to edit the code anytime soon.

    Good luck.

    I am in a similar boat in not being able to access LiveMeeting on the ipad since it uses Java. Kinda sucks, because, the ipad would be a perfect mobile meeting device for us road warriors. On a side note, my company wont even support VPN on an iDevice... Have to use a crappy web-based e-mail client to get corporate e-mails.

    This thread is an example of his "looking into whether a $500 device does what he needs."

    If you read the original post the OP said he bought, meaning already purchased.
