Dell adds new features to Wyse PocketCloud app portfolio

Infotech Lead America: Dell is adding new features to its Wyse PocketCloud app portfolio.

The new enhancements are aimed at assisting individuals to connect with their professional and personal content anytime, anywhere from mobile devices or remote computers.

PocketCloud Explore and PocketCloud Web provide a secure and fast way to remotely connect to users’ PCs and Macs from Android, iOS and Windows RT devices, including the Dell XPS 10 tablet, or any Web browser, enabling users to access and share any content.

“With the larger and more user-friendly interface available on tablet devices, users can do it all, from sharing personal memories to editing professional documents. Dell Wyse PocketCloud solutions make cloud computing less ‘pie in the sky,’ and more ‘palm of your hand,’ as users are able to not only access all their assets from their mobile devices, but also change, upload and delete them at will,” said Tarkan Maner, vice president and general manager, Cloud Client Computing at Dell.

Dell Wyse PocketCloud Explore for iPad and Windows RT will provide users with additional choices for remotely accessing their personal and professional content. The new releases complement the existing versions of PocketCloud apps for iOS and Android devices, which since their launches have had more than 3.7 million downloads and consistent 4 to 4.5 star ratings on both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The company is also announcing the release of its PocketCloud Web app and service, which brings all the features and benefits of the PocketCloud Explore apps to any Web browser. Users can now utilize a public computer and remotely access all the content – office files, photos, videos and music – on their personal and professional computers and stored in their own personal cloud.

Dell also said PocketCloud Companion will be installed as standard on all Dell XPS and Dell Inspiron computers shipped in North America starting Nov. 15, enabling users to easily build their own personal cloud to remotely manage their content from their smartphone and tablet device.

Michael Klein, a pediatric physician at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, Conn, said: “Being able to get the applications and information on my iPad when and where I need it helps me complete routine charting in a fraction of the time. The additional mobility is particularly helpful, because it means that I can go to where the children are and update information on the fly rather than having to log information or find a desktop to make amendments.”
