    I like how fast an easy to use it is. I have tried several other RDP clients and all are pretty tough to use on a 3.5″ screen, but I haven’t had any problems with PocketCloud

    • piratedman

      I’ve tried Logmein Ignition, splashtop Remote and Android VNC Viewer.

      Logmein works, its controls are a bit cumbersome… and so is the price.

      Splashtop remote just came out, and is fairly buggy. Some promised features are not present/working. Lower price, but who knows if it will ever work correctly

      Android VNC, works fine, but requires advanced knowledge of networking to setup. Not nearly as easy and convient as Wyse’s Pocketcloud.

      PocketCloud – Easy to setup, secure, and gives every feature you would expect of being at the computer. Sound, Keyboard, Scrolling, Clicking, ALT, Control, F1 keys, etc! Like your computer is really in your hand

    • jivemaster

      I’ve used Wyse extensively and there isn’t a better remote pc app on android. It’s so clean and the virtual mouse is awesome. I only wish it didn’t have the problems with swype that it has. Double letters in swyped words don’t appear (eg: “door” appears as “dor”), which gets annoying. I usually switch to the stock android keyboard while using the app to get around the problem. Lucky I don’t do a lot of typing when remoting in.

  • http://Website Jason Lassourreille

    I love how rediculously easy it is to set up. They take all the VPN headache out of the application. It is really a polished app!

    My favorite part about pocket cloud is I don’t have to load all my files on my phone and take up space…I can just remotely access them which I feel is safer and as a photographer I have a LOT of files!

  • AvantGuard

    Hands down, the best part of this is being able to have access to some of the pdf files I use for reference. I know Android has pdf viewers, but they don’t render as cleanly as they do on Windows. When I’m trying to do homework on my lunch break…. vital. Also, ejecting the disc drive when my girlfriend is in the room (and I’m 30 miles away), just to freak her out. :)

    The ease and simplicity of the setup.

  • http://Website @NEIDLINGER

    I work in the Automotive parts industry. ASE and AIA Certified.

    The best feature about this product is being able to access my terminal when i am on the road and answer any questions the customers may have from on the road. Need a part looked up? no problem. one of my guys sent the wrong part? lets double check it right here, right now. The “right now” factor is AMAZING….

  • JamTheMan

    I just love using Pocket Cloud when I have my home computer rendering some movie, which can take several hours. Then I can follow the progress all day, see when results should be online on the FTP (Thanks Premiere) and shut the big boy down or make it render something else – all while at Uni or somewhere else!

    Love it ;-)

    I love how I can access my files on my external HDD on my desktop and utilize them without having to put them on my Droid. Sure, the screen may be small, but it works. When I need to download something, such as music (I DJ) I don’t have to do so from the droid, I can just set it at home and leave it.

  • http://Website Jared

    all around smooth app, easy setup, easy use, and super easy access to all the thing on my desktop i could ever need from my phone.

  • http://Website Harold Goldner

    Frankly, been using it since it was in beta, and still use the full version. It is a great RDP application and it is quite amazing how I have been able to get into my office workstation and do things when I can’t get my Netbook online at all. It would be even *more* amazing on a Galaxy Tab, no doubt.

  • http://Website Tim V

    I love the OS dependent keyboards! Mac OR PC This lack of feature drove me nuts on other clients!

  • http://Website ben

    It easy to setup and use great app!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/jstnbsn Justin B

    My favorite feature is the mouse pointer that can pop up, allowing you to click and drag, right click, etc. The most useful tool out of any of the remote desktop apps.

  • Jaymoon

    VNC connection support is nice for my Linux machines on my LAN.

    But I have to say I really like the pointer “wheel”. That’s a pretty handy way to have the controls out of you way as far as screen real estate goes.

  • http://Website Dustin

    I like the simplicity of it, you font have to be a genius ir coder to use it and yet it is extremely functional. Great app!!!

    No longer crippled when I forget to bring a document home from work or vise versa, or if a coworker needs something I may be able to help out with but i’m at a restaurant, I can still help them out.

    -some renders aren’t on the ftp
    -sorry, I’ll upload now, count five minutes
    -but, you are outside arent you? I can hear some pub noises there. Or did you take your laptop with you?
    -nope, im on my android phone, with Wyse PocketCloud Technology!
    -oooooOOooOoh..!

  • http://Website James

    I like how quick it was to set up. Logged in with my google info after downloading a couple apps and it was ready to go.

  • http://www.ashersimonds.com Vazguard

    I love how perfect the interface is. With support for both tap to click and virtual pointer access, as well as multitouch zooming, the speed of usability is as astounding as the connection speed. The setup with the PC/Mac Connection client makes remote desktop something even users new to the concept giddy with the thought of easily controlling their computers from afar. And for advanced users, the setup with VNC or other connection methods is astoundingly simple. If I ever forget to put something in my Dropbox, this is the app I turn to. Kudos to Wyse!

  • http://Website Justin

    I love that i can use the soft keyboard on my phone to type things on my PC. Nice addition. Great for someone who has a phone without a hard keyboard.

      The mouse pointer is the best feature in the Wyse Pocketcloud app. It is easy to use and all the functions are close by (don’t need to dig through tons of menus to get something done.

    As a mobile traveling IT Technician/Administrator, this app on the Android platform really makes my job easier for remote access. It is simplistic to setup, very easy to use, and user friendly. What I like most is the quickness of the app itself, and the point-and-click is very nice unlike the other apps I have tried in the past. Two thumbs up!! Great work you guys!

  • jthatcher79

    It’s actually great if you have a situation where IP Ports are changing all the time (like at an office) you can authenticate once to Google and be set.

    And yes it works GREAT on the NOOK COLOR! I’m able to control multiple PCs with the Pro-Version very well!

  • http://Website 2P

    Quick and easy!

  • http://Website Reginald Cunningham

    The absolutely most awesome thing about this application is the ability to be able to basically expand the storage you have on your phone by being able to remotely access your desktop. This allows the user to not have to purchase a large mini sd card, not necessarily have to carry around a remote hard drive, and access almost anything you would normally be able to access on your computer.

    It’s also very useful if you forget your USB jump drive with your schoolwork at home!

  • http://Website Tanner

    As a developer, plugging in and moving .apk files back and forth is time that could be spent testing or debugging. The simplicity of the set up and the fact that it actually works (most FTP or file sharing programs I download only work for a few days) is really helpful. I can switch out apps on the go and test/show them off anytime and anywhere. Definitely a keeper.

  • http://Website Emily

    As a product manager, i am constantly traveling and have my work laptop, work pc, work mac, and a whole stable of VMs that i have to access regularly. This makes it so much easier when you are on the road. The UI for clicking and controlling the remote terminal is excellent compared to logmein. This app is a winner.

    The ease of the initial setup is probably my most favorite feature. I will definitely recommend this to some of my non-techie friends; anyone can use this software. It’s simple, and it works great.

  • http://Website Scott

    Take your pick:
    Ease of use
    Speed
    Support of RD servers requiring NLA

    Any of those are reason enough to buy the Pro version of PocketCloud.

  • http://Website Ted

    Best feature by far is the ability to connect RDP or VNC to my mission critical servers and get a good idea of what is going on without having to boot up my laptop. It is efficent, effective, was easy to setup and is easy to use.

  • http://Website GeoDude

    Best thing is having all my reference materials and correspondence available while at remote meetings.

  • http://matthew.chaboud.com Matthew Chaboud

    Honestly, the best part of this application is that the permissions aren’t completely ridiculous. That’s not to say that this is a bad app. it’s actually pretty awesome.

    What pushes it over the top into “I love these guys” territory is that they don’t go mine my contacts, check my phone state, or do anything else that makes me wary of installing, say, Pandora.

    On top of that, when they want to collect anonymous usage statistics, they ask you if that’s okay!

    Top marks.

  • http://Website AnUrbanLegend

    My favorite feature of PocketCloud is the auto discovery and being able to connect to my home PC from anywhere!

  • http://Website Abrahan Reyes

    Easy to setup and use. Free and pretty nice performance.

  • http://Website Mark

    Yes, it’s extremely easy to setup and use. Yes, you can access all your files from your home and work pc’s right from your phone. Yes, its gotten me out of several jams at work when I need to access files when I’m on the road. But the single best thing about Wyse Pocket Cloud, for me, is scaring the bajeezus out of my girlfriend when my “haunted” computer just starts playing music when no one is using it. I do it all the time and still haven’t told her. When she tells me about it later I just act like she is crazy. haha!

  • http://Website Adam

    I’m glad I happened on this article. Installed it and have been playing around with PocketCloud for a good while. I’ve been using LogMeIn for sort of the same thing, but I found PocketCloud very easy to set up, and I really really like having both tap and pointers available. I never found LogMeIn to be very intuitive, but I think I could give this to my mom and she’d just know how to use it.

  • http://Website Aaron M

    Without a doubt the Touch Pointer is the best part of PocketCloud. It makes it incredibly easy to left click, right click or even scroll with flawless precision no matter how thick your fingers are. The shortcuts to the keyboard and function keys makes it even better! With this tool, that only PocketCloud have as far as I know, you can actually use the target computer without going crazy trying to hit a button. I love it!

  • http://Website Connor

    I love being able to ditch the netbook; what a niche piece of junk. With this app, I have specs in my phone that actually rival my laptop…wait, now my phone IS my laptop!

  • wwJOSHdo

    my favorite feature is that I can start uploading a youtube video with my phone, by logging into pocketcloud and start uploading the new video that just got done editing while I was out. This app is amazing and it’s half the price of logmein! I am gonna try to buy the 15 dollar version soon! This app is AMAZING!

    Its smooth, the interface is quick, I use it from my T-Mobile G2 and it works great. I use it to run music files remotely or just make sure the kids are doing their homework on my computer and not playing games. Oh, great job with the easy vnc setup.

  • http://Website Derek

    I love how I can use it as a mouse when I’m editing and working on my photography from my computer. It makes it so much easier when I can touch my photos with my fingers instead of a physical mouse. =] Good luck everyone!

  • http://Website Jason

    I downloaded it a few days ago, after looking over the reviews by other users and comparing the various options available on the market.

    The free version doesn’t support pinch zoom, I would have like to try that on my phone before buying the full version. I likely still will buy it, if only because the reviews are good and it is less expensive than most of the other full featured options. If I had been able to trial the pinch zoom and possibly more than one connection so I could see the multi connection management in action I would have bought it on the spot two days ago. Perhaps limited to one connection via RDP and one via VNC in the free app?

    Oh, and way to knock autodiscovery and VPN/Tunneling out of the park in an app like this.

    I have found the pointer to be something I have to get used to. It does seem to be good, as the other posters mentioned, but it took a little practice to get used to for me.

    Another item that I would like to have in a RDP client on my Android is to have the locally managed connections stored in standard connection files on the file system (e.g. .rdp files for RDP). That way I could use a sync service, such as Dropbox, to sync them to my desktops and use the same stored connections on all of my machines.

    Overall, *very* good and I will likely purchase it today or tomorrow after a bit more testing. If anything else occurs to my I will reply to this post. Just in case Wyse is interested in comments from RDP power users. :)

    If fact Wyse can feel free to email me if they have any questions about my comments above. I am delighted to help with software I like.

    Regards
    Jason

    P.S. Hey Wyse, how about whipping up a desktop client for Windows and Linux with the same features? I buy that. :)

    Everyone is talking about what Pocketcloud does. I want to mention was it doesn’t do…I doesn’t give me IT headaches.

    I have a few employees that use pocketcloud to connect to their work computers. After the basic intital setup IT JUST WORKS. I have not had one person request help with a pocketcloud issue.

    I wish I could say the same for several of the other programs we use. Great job guys!

    Best of luck to all.

    It’s not so much a specific “feature”, but to me the freedom it provides is absolutely priceless. Being the IT director at a growing medical facility, it gives me the freedom to navigate instantly to any of the office computers as I collaborate with the doctors, and gives them the freedom to pull up their charts, medical records, etc – all seamlessly without removing themselves from their patients. It takes seconds to set up and you’re set. It really is an amazing product.

    The best RDP client i have ever tried. Best option is access to files. Thats really good feature.

  • http://Website Ratsel Feinschmeker

    The best feature? Definitely the ease of set-up. I’ll probably have to get used to the mouse pointer but it’s not bad. It’s really like using the computer.

  • http://Website Micheal Burns

    I have never used a remote desktop program before and now I don’t know how I lived without one. I have access to almost anything I want on my home PC all from my cellphone! This is truly one of the greatest features of my cellphone. The simplicity of setting up the software made it double worthwhile!

    Android, “The Cloud” and remote access to my doc’s from my phone, five stars to Wyse for making me look good and making those still using Blackberry jealous.

    The easiest remote desktop app I’ve ever used. Couldn’t ask for an easier setup.

  • http://Website McParty

    First, I love that you get the option of a free version or a paid version. 2nd would be how easy it was to setup. I was hesitant to install thinking I would be going thru setting after setting.

    Having access to all of my files on multiple devices is absolutely great! Now only if I had a Shiny new Galaxy Tab to use this app with…

    I love the speed and simplicity of pocket cloud, Im definitely getting the paid verison +1 for a great app, this would look so good on a seven in Galaxy Tab

  • http://asurroca.com Alfonso Surroca

    My favorite feature is definitely the radial menu that appears around your finger when you long-press. That kind of menu is straight out of sci-fi movies, and the level of awesomeness of that kind of menu approaches infinity.

  • http://knewhost.com neo4uo

    I love the ease of use. It was easy to set up and it gives me access to all i need. I use three things; my desktop, notebook, and Fascinate. This gives my fascinate more power by connecting it to my desktop, which is the hub of all my files. I have tried other proggies, but really am glad I have this one :)

    -Thanks \oo/

  • http://Website Daniel

    This app is by far the best! I love how easy it was set up ,it’s absolutely awesome looking ui, and it’s easy to use touch pointer interface. Looks absolutely stunning on a phone as well as the tab! You just can’t see any flaws with this program, just heads and tows above the rest! I already upgraded to the pro version for the extra features!

  • http://www.twitter.com/lVloose Moose

    Ive used this today and I have to say im very impressed. I think i will use this and share it with my friends. My wife will also like this as she many times forgets documents or lists on my computer.

    i love the easy setup and the ease of use. I love the mouse pointer. I like being able to access documents on the phone. The only problem was i did this on my sweeties phone. I’d love to have a phone that could do this.

    the speed of getting and out of the desktop, I can view movies and listen to music, and have the comfort of having my desktop at work, even though you asked for one,i gave my favorites

  • http://www.vsys.us Johnny Mota

    I love the interface!!! This app is awesome for me as a System integrator in the Home Automation field, It allows me to be able to view PDF’s and all my files on my computer. For example If I forget some drawings for a project I can view them from my 4.3″ phone in excellent quality as if I was sitting on front of my computer right there! And If It’s not in my Dropbox, guess what, Open this app and Voila everything I need is easily accessible through a beautiful interface, so easy in fact, my mom was able to figure it out in minutes! This is an app I will never Delete!

    My favorite part about pocket cloud is I don’t have to load all my files on my phone and take up precious memory card space. I can just remotely access them and I am good to go!!!

    The thing I like best about WYSE PocketCloud is that I no longer have to recommend LogMeIn which costs $29.99!

  • http://Website matt

    The cross-platform aspect and auto-discovery feature are definite highlights.

  • http://relativemedia.com Mike DeVita

    Ive been using PocketCloud since it came out. My favorite feature is the touch pointer. It makes clicking on icons, and buttons simple and quick. Especially when managing one of my Windows Servers remotely.

  • http://Website Ryan Westling

    My favorite part is the super-simple Auto-Discovery feature that doesn’t require you to set up any port forwarding or fiddle with internal settings of you computer. Just login securely with your Google Mail account, and your computers and your Android device are connected!

  • frannois

    What I like is to work from the bathroom.

  • http://Website Hatem Ali

    I especially like how this app shows how powerful the Android OS truly is. It really makes the argument that Android is not business class moot. Especially when you factor in exchange support. True REP( with the choice to run it free or paid ) and super fast access. Really makes you ask why do I need a laptop when I can do it all from a tablet just as easily… Excellent App and a real win for Android.

Best of all, I can access my PC’s USB devices on my phone, like my external HD or even the webcam.

  • http://www.twitter.com/zomdroidz Jason Durrett

    It is really difficult to choose a feature of Wyse Pocket Cloud for Android as a favorite, but if I had to choose one out of the endless adoration I have for this app, it has got to be the easy-to-use user-interface. IT is simply the best and most well thought of interface in the sea of “remote software” out there! :)

    Favorite feature of Pocketcloud: My most favorite feature is the fact that I can finally remote desktop in to my pc at work! This is only possible because pocketcloud allows you to use your Google login do you don’t have to figure out what the ip address is or have access to port forwarding, etc. This is great because I work at a college and stuff like that is hard to get.

    I’ve only had this for a few days and it’s already saved me a trip home twice! I love how easy it was to set up, yet so valuable. Before this app I never would have thought that grabbing a PDF remotely off my computer from my phone would be so easy.

  • http://Website tkminter

    Love how easy it is to set up! Sometimes remote clients can be tricky, but I had no problems connecting to both my home and work computers. With this app, I can now leave my laptop at work when I go on trips and do everything I need to on my droidinc. (Of course, I would be AWESOME to use it on the Galaxy Tab too!)

  • Captain_Kangaroo

    This app is ground-breaking, in my opinion. Sure there have been other apps that allow computer access through a cell phone, but PocketCloud takes it to a whole new level. I have been using it with my Macbook Pro for a few days now and have a few favorite things I would like to share.

    First, it is SO simple. I literally set up the app and mac companion and had them connected within two minutes. I have never had that kind of ease of use with apps like LogMeIn Ignition and others like it. I am a techie, but I have absolutely no doubt that any person, even with no computer skills, could figure this app out.

    Secondly, the performance. It has a really high performance rating. I had TERRIBLE connection speed and lag with LogMeIn. Of course, there is lag with all apps of this sort, but with PocketCloud, it is noticeably less. I’d say about 2 seconds of lag max for me. I probably wouldn’t even have noticed the lag if I wasn’t sitting at my laptop while I tested it out for the first time.

    Thirdly, the price. At half the price of LogMeIn, this app is a must get. $15 for access to your entire computer’s contents from anywhere? Yes, please. At prices this low, you can’t afford not to buy!

    Oh, and last thing. The touch pointer is awesome. I’m addicted.

    Thanks PocketCloud for the awesome app!

  • http://Website dino

    Insanely easy setup. Using Google credentials makes setup and detection super easy. especially for those who are not network savvy. Great program and alternative to LogMeIn, and well worth the $15. I think the setup and ease of use is the best part of this app.

  • http://Website louis thevenot

    I love how surprisingly easy it is to set up- I didn’t have to deal with all of this confusing VPN encryption lingo and whatnot., like most RDP apps make me. I’ve already used it twice to pull a bunch of files from my desktop after I forgot to send them to my phone. I bought the Pro version this morning so I could also connect with my work computer, and I don’t regret it one bit. This app is quite the lifesaver.

    The PocketCloud touch pointer is sick! What a sweet implementation. THAT being said, I like the RDP performance optimizations available. Nice and fast.

  • http://www.assemblystudio.com Josef

    PocketCloud easy setup & responsiveness during use have changed my opinion of mobile-to-desktop remoting. Compared to RemoteRDP, PocketCloud makes the experience a joy!

    The PocketCloud Android app is awesome. It has given me the ability, as a Network Administrator, to remotely manage both clients and servers using either my Droid X or my Samsung Galaxy Tablet. I can do this “on-the-go” without the need to be tied to my desk or at the specific computer being managed. My favorite feature is the touch pointer. It provides an easy-to-use integrated control mechanism. It’s intuitive and straight-forward in its approach, yet contains all the necessary control functions in one movable unit. I wish it was available in other Android apps. Kudos to your programming team!

    The companion software makes it a breeze to setup more than one computer. Especially when you have multiple devices you connect from.

    I have been using the Pro version for quite some time now. Did not take long to switch up to Pro after seeing all the features and the ease of use from the free version.

  • http://www.overthere.co.uk Gary Hughes

    The killer feature for me has to be the Touch Pointer. It makes using the mouse over my VNC or RDP sessions so much easier. I usually start off just tapping at the screen to get what I need done, but having the ability to just level up the accuracy like that is priceless.

    I only figured out the other day that holding down for a couple of seconds and then moving the pointer works like a trackpad does on a laptop. Great for flinging windows around. Coupled with the pinch-to-zoom feature for bringing up the accuracy even more just really takes the pain out of moving the cursor around.

  • http://Website Scot T

    Downloaded the free version and have played with it. Super easy to set up. The VPN connect worked very well. Works great on my droid 2. Great for when I am on the road checking my laptop and retrieving data. Great job. I love this day and age.
