PocketCloud 1.1: Improved solution to Mobile Computer Access for the Galaxy Tab

PocketCloud 1.1: Improved solution to Mobile Computer Access for the Galaxy Tab

Wyse had successfully integrated the realms of cloud computing, personal computing and remote desktop services by introducing PocketCloud a short while back. Using Pocket Cloud, users and administrators can successfully and securely access user machines from anywhere using their smart phones. It’s like folding up your system and carrying it along in your pocket, wherever you go! There is no limit to what you want to access. It maybe multimedia files, applications, data files or your important excel workbooks. Initially the service was introduced for iPhones and later Wyse extended the utility to the Androids and iPads.

Pocket cloud uses the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to connect to any system that has the RDP protocol enabled. The software needs to be installed on the system that is to be accessed and on the hand-held device that is used to access the system. There are limitations to the operating systems Pocket Cloud supports. Some distinctive features of the Pocket Cloud is that it supports Flash on all the iDevices (Take that Steve Jobs!).

Other features include:

Easy configuration: Compared to other cloud apps, it is very simple to configure and install.
Virtual mouse: The application supports a virtual mouse on your mobile device which makes system accessing very easy. Enabled Flash.

In order to access your system, IP, port, username and password of the system need to be known. Also, the system needs to be in the active state in order to be accessed. There are a few glitches with the utility like: It doesn’t support MAC and there are some security issues since Windows firewall needs to be disabled. Moreover, once you are done accessing the PC desktop and get back to the system, you will see some blurry lines on the desktop which can be a nuisance.

With the success of PocketCloud’s original app, it has now released PocketCloud 1.1 for the Galaxy Tab.
With the Samsung Galaxy Tab being a potent contender of the iPad, Wyse has made a smart move to support
remote desktop on this platform. PocketCloud 1.1 will support the Samsung Galaxy Tablet and the upcoming Cisco
Cius. Basic features are the same as the ones offered in the previous version but several features have been
tweaked. The new version supports Network Level Authentication (NLA) which will beef up the security. The
application remains free but the Pro package costs $14.99 and offers the ultimate mobile cloud computing
experience.

PocketCloud has been optimized to work smoothly with Wi-Fi and 3G connections. The utility now covers a
whole range of hand-held devices, mobile phones and tablets whereas some advanced features offered by the Pro
version include SSL encryption, support for RSA authentication and direct connections with advanced tunneling
which will make the outlook of this version even more promising. For all the people who can’t leave the sight of
their desktops, PocketCloud can prove to be the best available application which supports mobile computer access.
