SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--Wyse PocketCloud, the leading Android app on phones and tablets, was today named the best Android tablet remote desktop client by PCWorld. In a head-to-head comparison with other Android tablet apps including LogMeIn Ignition, there proved to be no competition as PocketCloud Pro emerged the winner. In fact PCWorld concluded, “By far, Wyse PocketCloud Pro is the clear leader among these three Android VNC apps.”
“by far the simplest of the three apps to configure.”
As the only remote desktop app designed with business users in mind, PocketCloud Pro outperformed the other apps in every aspect. PCWorld noted that PocketCloud Pro was “easily the most robust” highlighting three features that set it head and shoulders above other available apps.
Ease of Setup and Use
PCWorld noted that PocketCloud Pro’s use of the Google App Engine in the PocketCloud Companion makes it “by far the simplest of the three apps to configure.” Simply use a Google account to log in on both the Android tablet and PC or Mac and all the settings are configured automatically for immediate access to your computer.
Speed and Performance
PocketCloud also eclipsed the competition in terms of speed, being described as the fastest and most responsive. This is a credit to Wyse’s decades of experience providing industry-leading virtualization products, and the extensive development, testing, and performance optimization that went into PocketCloud.
Security and Management
When it comes to providing the best experience on Android tablets, PocketCloud’s exclusive features really set it apart. PCWorld noted that PocketCloud leads the space in supported connection types with VNC, RDP7 and VMware View all supported. The app also provides a level of encryption “beyond the capabilities of competitors” keeping personal data safe while on the go.
PCWorld was also impressed with the Touch Pointer navigation tool and its ability to bring all the tools and functions -- such as scrolling and right click -- directly to the screen area where you need them most.
