Wyse Extends Award-Winning Mobile Cloud App to Amazon’s New Kindle Fire
Wyse PocketCloud Brings Apps and Files of a PC, Mac or Virtual Desktop to the New Android Tablet
LONDON, UK. – 06/12/2011 – Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, is announcing today that its popular mobile virtualization and personal cloud software app, PocketCloud, is now available on the newly released Amazon Kindle Fire. The productivity app, which is available in the Amazon Appstore, transforms the lightweight Kindle Fire tablet into a full computing machine, capable of accessing and working within any file or application on a user’s remote PC, Mac or virtual desktop environment.
As the app that is pioneering personal cloud computing through remote desktop access, Wyse PocketCloud utilizes the existing storage on customers’ Macs, PCs or virtual desktops rather than storing files on third-party servers. This provides users with a less expensive and more secure peer-to-peer experience. The highly efficient Wyse PocketCloud interface goes beyond simply accessing files; it gives users the power to search, move, and edit files securely on their desktop or laptop computer as if it were right in front of them. These functions can be used with media and any application installed on the user’s computer such as Microsoft Office and Apple iWork.
Wyse PocketCloud is an ideal companion to the Kindle Fire, complementing Amazon’s extensive library of multimedia content by providing remote access to all the files, data, and multimedia a user already owns on their home or office computer. Users can download the free version of Wyse PocketCloud from the Amazon Appstore and instantly start working within any file or application from their desktop without the need to pay for third-party cloud services.
“Wyse PocketCloud for the Amazon Kindle Fire is an extension of our vision to bring mobile virtualization and personal cloud computing to a wider audience of tablet users,” said Daniel Barreto, general manager of the Mobile Cloud Business Unit at Wyse. “Wyse PocketCloud has already revolutionized the mobile enterprise market with its productivity software, and we now aim to bring the freedom of true mobile computing to Kindle Fire users without the unnecessary costs or security risks of third-party clouds.”
Wyse PocketCloud is optimized for Android devices and supports a host of features designed to make the mobile computing experience as easy and manageable as possible. Features include a custom keyboard function with shortcut keys designed around the Android keyboard and enhanced automatic sound support. Wyse PocketCloud also maximizes the Android user interface with innovative touch-friendly features like Touch Pointer and Rich Gestures, features that allow users to enjoy a fast and highly efficient remote computing experience.
