Citrix is much different than vnc so those trying to compare the two might want to do a little research. I did and this seems like a killer app for those that need it but it is not a app for the masses. If your company does not use citrix its of no use to you but for those who need it this could be a amazing app.
As far as AppleChick i dig most of her post and i pass on the ones that dont interest me. If any of you can do better get on it! She's doing her job and obviously the news has been slow lately so keep up the good work AC!

Citrix is a thin-client VMware - not a VNC client
Since the XenApp client/presentation server software is freely available to Citrix endpoint users, I don't see this as having a hefty pricetag, in fact - i don't see it coming with a pricetag at all. Instead, I view it as being an extension to the lineup of platforms currently available for the Citrix server.
My biggest concern is how this app can best be optimized/utilized within a 480x320 screen. I'm blind already trying to read webpages using the iphone - and zooming in and out will decrease productivity. But, I'll reserve judgment until I've actually had hands on experience with it. Until then, I look forward to following development progress and ultimate introduction to the iphone.

This is sweet. Being an IT professional which is on-call for a quarter of my life, now I can troubleshoot thru my phone without having to carry a computer to the Bar, errrr....to my friends house.
I wonder if it's going to be restricted to WIFI only?
BTW....I don't carry a computer in the bar. I leave it in my car. I'm not THAT big of a dork.

This isn't just a VNC app. What is best is that this is a LARGE corporation, especially one that is one of the market leaders for virtualization. In the healthcare biz, this will be fantastic as there are now many physicians that are demanding iPhone access to applications, but there is no IT solution as of yet. My friend in IT (our Citrix admin) is not going to like this, but he will have to. I've already told him that I will be using this app once it comes out.

Jaadu Remote Desktop is a RDP client that is available *now* on the app store - Jaadu RDP . It lets you connect to the Windows machines using Microsoft's native RDP protocol. So you don't need a VNC server running on the PC.
NCMacMan: Ask your friend to try it out - if he his virtualizing Windows machines this should work for him without needing any additional software.

During MacWorld, the Citrix guys were there touting the new receiver app. A PR blurb indicates they plan on releasing it via the AppStore 1Q'09. Additionally, it will be a free download:
"Application delivery firm Citrix has been demonstrating its long-rumoured iPhone client at the Macworld show this week.
Executives confirmed that it would ship through Apple's App Store as a free download this quarter."
(source: Citrix readies iPhone client - vnunet.com)
Personally, I'm looking forward to trying this out. The demos look promising for feature-rich use of the actual Ofc apps.
