TRY BEFORE YOU BUY — Test-drive games by jumping in and out of free premium game demos.

OnLive Viewer is the first cloud gaming app for a mobile device. High-performance OnLive servers, perhaps thousands of miles away, instantly respond to every touch of your finger, create the entire OnLive experience remotely, and then send the video through the Internet to appear on your iPad screen. Your iPad is like a touchscreen display attached to a giant supercomputer in the cloud.
Because this is so new and complex, we’re starting by just enabling a handful of features with very limited iPad integration. But the possibilities of what we can do with OnLive combined with iPad—both for gaming and other applications—are endless. What you are seeing today is just the very tip of an enormous iceberg. Stay tuned for great stuff to come.
And, we are GRATEFUL for any and all feedback. Nothing like OnLive has existed before, so what we learn from our early users is immensely valuable. Thanks! –The OnLive Team

* Currently OnLive games are not designed for touch-screen devices, so playing games is not yet supported on iPad. But, stay tuned as touch-aware and motion-aware OnLive games are developed!
* The OnLive Viewer works best with at least a 2 Mb Wi-Fi connection. If you have a strong 3G signal, the OnLive Viewer will work for up to 10 minutes at a time.
