I just touched base with the marketing director over at Idokorro to see how the release of their highly anticipated Citrix Presenation Server Client is going. The early results are in and it looks like Idokorro is going to score another slam dunk! The product launched this morning and the application has already received a lot of downloads and a lot of purchases (the numbers impressed me - and I'm not easy to impress!). This is no surprise considering every application produced by the company turns out to be the category killer for that segment.
If you haven't seen the release yet, you can read it in full after the jump:
