Cloud Apps of the Week: PocketCloud

Cloud Apps of the Week

On the lookout for the latest cloud applications worth your download? Here’s an impressive trio that will scintillate for couch potatoes on the go, literature obsessives, and the Facebook frustrated.

What if you could TiVo your desktop via your mobile phone? PocketCloud from Wyse empowers its users to accomplish just that: remotely access their Macs or PCs at home, with just a few touches on their Android, iPhone, or iPad. Reaching your files on Photoshop or your engaging in your latest Minecraft adventures is a snap with PocketCloud’s emphasis on ease of use and non-fussy installation.

Those who are put off by the cloud’s infamous security issues will gravitate to this app; PocketCloud prioritizes data protection via “enterprise grade security” measures. PocketCloud and its amenities are fortunately free of charge. At $1 a month, needier users can upgrade to PocketCloud Pro and enjoy connecting to multiple computers.

Indulge your inner bookworm with Library from Fabasoft Folio Cloud. This app especially comes in handy for librarians (duh!) and collectors of rare volumes, who need to demonstrate watchdog-style vigilance regarding the location of their precious titles. Library enables users to masterfully handle how they lend out books by creating multiple “Libraries” that note each and every lending activity. The techs at Folio Cloud have cleverly endowed Library with the multicolored “Tabs” feature to boot.

Tinted red, yellow, and green, a la traffic lights, Tabs provide a brisk at-a-glance perusal of every book in the system, at any time. Test Library gratis for 3 months. Afterwards, you can purchase a subscription of either 3 months or 1 year. And by the way, Library’s bilingual, communicating in English or German.

Modern-day businesspeople revere the power of Facebook. Those who have taken up cloud computing likely respect the social networking juggernaut even more fervently. Yet no matter how ardent their devotion, many professionals find Facebook a tough nut to crack. Enter Postcron, the cloud app geared toward busy small business owners looking to improve their Facebook output.

Via Postcron, a user can draft status updates and posts in advance. The app schedules these creations and publishes them at regular intervals that users can customize. Big companies like Doritos and GMC find Postcron, free for all, useful for distributing content at pinpointed times of high Facebook traffic, such as right before the workday and lazy Sunday afternoons.
