With Horizon Client 4.0 or later, you can use Peek and Pop gestures to interact with Horizon Client on a 3D Touch-enabled iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.

Using Peek and Pop with the Horizon app on Your Home Screen

You can Peek at the Horizon app on your Home screen to show a quick action menu. On the quick action menu, you can tap the Connect to Most Recent Server item to quickly connect to the most recently used server. If a recent server does not exist, you can tap the Connect to Most Recent Server item to add a new server.

After you connect to a remote desktop or application, Horizon Client adds a shortcut to the desktop or application to the quick action menu. For example, if you connect to a remote desktop named Win7, Horizon Client adds Connect to Win7. You can tap a shortcut to quickly connect a remote desktop or application. The Horizon icon quick action menu can contain up to three shortcuts.

Using Peek and Pop Inside Horizon Client

On the desktop and application selection screen, you can Peek at a remote desktop or application to show a quick action menu. You can tap items in the quick action menu to connect, log off, mark a favorite, and perform other actions, depending on the remote desktop or application. You can also Pop into a remote desktop or application to connect to it.

Quick action menus are also available on the Servers, Recent, and Favorites screens. For example, on the Servers screen, you can Peek at a saved server and tap items in the quick action menu to edit, remove, or connect to the server. On the Recent screen, you can Peek at a remote desktop or application shortcut and tap items in the quick action menu to remove the shortcut or connect to the desktop or application. You can also Pop into a saved server or remote desktop or application shortcut to connect to it.

Enabling Peek for the Horizon Client Tools

By default, the Horizon Client Tools radial menu icon appears in the middle of the screen when you are connected to a remote desktop or application. You tap the radial menu icon to expand the menu and display icons for each tool, which you tap to select. For pictures of the radial menu icon and tools icons, see 1.

If you enable Peek for the Horizon Client Tools, the Horizon Client Tools radial menu icon does not appear. To display the icons for each tool, press deeply on any place on the screen.

To enable Peek for the Horizon Client Tools, tap Settings at the bottom of the Horizon Client screen, tap Touch, and toggle the Peek for the menu setting to on. If you are connected to a remote desktop or application, you can use the Horizon Client Tools to enable the Peek for the menu setting. Tap the radial menu icon, tap the Settings icon to open the Options dialog box, and toggle the Peek for the menu setting to on.
