Win a copy of Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac! [Competition]

by Stephen Ashby

Click here to be in with a chance of winning one of TEN copies of Parallels Desktop 9 or one of FIVE copies of Parallels Switch to Mac

SmallWhether you’ve recently moved to Mac and are missing some of your old apps, or you just want a little more flexibility with what you run, Parallels Desktop 9 will be ideal for you. The app enables you to run Windows programs like native Mac apps alongside your favourites like iPhoto and Finder, or open up a full Windows workspace (complete with the new Metro interface and a dedicated Windows desktop) in a stand-alone window or a full-screen space.

With Parallels 9, users also get a 6 months subscription to Parallels Access, a service that enables you to use the apps from both Mac and Windows on your iPad as if they were native apps.

It’s very cool, and we’re sure you want a copy, so you’ll be pleased to hear that we have it up for grabs in this month’s competition. The app comes in two forms, and we’re giving away TEN copies of Parallels Desktop 9 and FIVE copies of Parallels Switch to Mac.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the question below. And, if you’re still not sure whether you want a copy of the app, check out our review to get the low-down on just how good it is.

      I hope I win! I have parallels desktop 8 for Mac, but I just can’t afford to upgrade for $50.00. I have only been of iCreate for about 1 week now, and I love it! The most I love is the iOS 7 Mac icons and the contests! Keep it up!
