The Struggle is Real: Choosing Between Parallels Access 2.5 on Android or iOS


I’m an Apple girl through-and-through.

My love of Apple started young (thanks Dad)—when the iPod Mini came out, I got the adorable green one for my birthday that year, and jammed out to my limited collection of music with it (mostly to the Shrek soundtrack).

A few years later, I graduated to my iPod Classic (with video!) that I got for Christmas. Fast-forward to my first job as a lifeguard, when I saved up all of my paychecks to join #TeamiPhone! I’ve been hooked ever since.

Although I love my iOS device, there is one thing I covet about Parallels Access on the Android: the ability to place your favorite desktop applications on your Android home screen. I’m so jealous of this awesome feature!

I’ve tried Android, but what can I say—I’m too hooked on Apple!
