Using Gestures in Citrix Receiver on Apple Devices 

Learning Gestures

In your Citrix Receiver applications, use all the familiar iPad gestures, including the toolbar options.


From the toolbar, tap Gestures or use this guide:

To do this: On the device, do this:

Start an app

Tap the icon.

For some apps, you might have to double tap.

Start a second app

From the toolbar, tap Home and select the second app.

Right click

Touch, hold, and release.

Add an app to your Receiver home screen

From the Apps list, tap the plus sign (+) to add it to the favorites.

Refresh the list of Receiver apps

From the Apps list, drag your finger down the list and release.

Remove an app from your Receiver home screen

Touch and hold any icon until they all jiggle, and then tap the X. Tap the screen again to save the screen. Alternatively, use the right-click menu option.

Switch between running apps

From the toolbar, tap Switch, or use the two-finger tap. Alternatively, from your home screen, tap Connections.

Open the keyboard

From the toolbar, tap Arrow Keys, or with the document size at 100% (not expanded or reduced), tap the page once and drag your finger up to scroll down.
