Using your Android tablet to access your MAC or PC is easier than ever with the PocketCloud remote desktop app from Wyse. You will have peace of mind knowing you can gain access to files on your home or office computer at any time and from anywhere in the world securely and with ease.
PocketCloud is a useful Android app for completing both business and personal tasks while on the go. It’s highly common for people to take advantage of portable computing and long gone are the days where you have to be directly in front of your computer. Of course RDP (remote desktop protocol) and VNC (virtual network computing) is nothing new, but as tablets continue to take mobile computing to a whole new level these particular types of apps are also evolving.
So long as you have a WiFi, 3G or 4G connection on your Android tablet you can use PocketCloud to do things like run applications remotely, access notes and files and even provide assistance or tech support for a friend, family member or business client as if you were physically there. How’s that for a run-on sentence?
Setting up your virtual desktop is very simple and requires practically no technical background or knowledge. It has a friendly and hassle free user-interface which enables you to get connected instantly.
There is a free version available as well as the PocketCloud Pro paid version. The free app has all the basic features you need but it’s not as secure and limits you to one computer. On the other hand for only $8.65 (CAD) you can purchase PocketCloud Pro which has additional features including much more secure 128-bit encryption for VNC and 256-bit encryption (NLA/TLS) for connections using RDP. Both are compatible with the latest Android Honeycomb tablet operating system.
So far over 1 million people have downloaded this popular Android app. Feedback and reviews have been very positive. Of course like any other app you’ll always have those who are unsatisfied but in that case it’s best to go by the overall feedback. Based on over 2,100 votes this app has a 4.5 out of 5 rating, which you have to admit is impressive. Our good friends over at AndroidTapp.com have given PocketCloud 4/5 stars.
