Dell PocketCloudDell announced enhancements to its Dell Wyse PocketCloud app portfolio to help connect individuals with their professional and personal content anytime, anywhere from any device. 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 BYOD making its way into the IT community at a steady pace, people are increasingly looking for apps to access their content on a variety of devices running on the move. PocketCloud enables them to easily create a “personal cloud” to search, view, organize, and share content among mobile devices and computers. Dell has made this possible with three flavors of Pocket Cloud.

For mobile devices like iPad and Windows RT( special version of the Windows 8 operating system designed to run on mobile devices utilizing the ARM architecture ), Dell Wyse has come up with PocketCloud explore. With the help of this app users can access their content remotely. The company claims that the existing version of PocketCloud apps had more than 3.7 million downloads and consistent 4 to 4.5 star ratings on both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

PocketCloud Web app and service brings all the features and benefits of the PocketCloud Explore apps to any Web browser including remote access of all the content. For multimedia content, users can upload and download files between their devices and remote computers, share content by streaming audio and video files from their remote computers and open remote files through a viewer or download and edit within a compatible local application.

PocketCloud Companion is the client broker for Windows and Mac operating systems that provides access to content and applications stored on remote computers. It enables users to easily build their own personal cloud to remotely manage their content from their smartphone and tablet device.

“Users require access to their digital assets at their fingertips wherever they might be,” said Tarkan Maner, vice president and general manager, Cloud Client Computing at Dell. “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.”

PocketCloud Explore for iPad and Window RT are available immediately as free downloads in the Apple AppStore and Windows Store respectively. Registration for PocketCloud Web is available at
