is there a way to publish  IE and ms office and run it on ipad?
i have custom app that only runs in IE, we also have ipads that sales personnel uses and they need to be able to have access to IE
i can do it trough RDP or onlive desktop or some other service but it wouldn't be same.

IE is not an option for iPad or Apple IOS.
Your best bet is to use remote connection to a PC.

so app publishing with citrix or win2008 won't work?
any kind of thin client?
Don't talk to me.
Commented:
You could create an app that is essentially a thin client that connects the user to a remote server or farm but the mind boggles at the logistics of it.

Easier to just write an app that speaks directly to the database.

IE is not supported on Iphone or Ipad

Unfortunatley, you will need to use RDP
Commented:
As vinkulin suggests if your running a client server network, using iTap mobile RDP available from iTunes store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/itap-mobile-rdp-remote-desktop/id317062064?mt=8,  a highly rated RDP client.

Does not have the same functionality but Documents to Go enables you to view and edit Word, Excel and Powerpoint docs. http://www.dataviz.com/DTG_iphone.html
