Wyse rolls out PocketCloud client virtualisation app for iPad

Supports multiple virtualisation infrastructures and standards

By CBR Staff Writer

Wyse Technology, a provider of thin computing and client virtualisation offerings, has released its PocketCloud App for iPad and also enhanced it with more than 20 new features and improvements for existing iPhone users, including VMware View 4 support, enhanced user experience via the new Wyse Touch Pointer and additional audio features.

The company said that the PocketCloud has been completely re-written to run natively on iPad and its user interface has also been updated to make it easier for iPad users to edit and modify their RDP and VMware View connections.

According to Wyse, PocketCloud features include enhanced multi-touch interface for iPad, custom keyboard with function and short-cut keys, international keyboard support, multi-line text entry with iPhone’s copy/paste capability, newly-designed mouse touch pointer, remote app scrolling, switches to turn on/off wallpapers, themes, window dragging, QuickZoom feature, and console login support.

PocketCloud is compatible with iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch and iPad, and connects to Microsoft Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate, Windows XP Pro, Vista Business and remote desktop services and terminal services features in Windows Server products. PocketCloud Windows Companion now supports 64-bit operating systems on the host.

In addition, PocketCloud also includes a Windows client side companion application that enables more advanced capabilities such as Thin-Browser, an enhanced, server-side browser capability, enabling full access to websites with Flash content.

Daniel Barreto, chief software architect at Wyse, said: The goal at Wyse is to allow our customers to access any document or file from any device. The PocketCloud App has been a great addition to our offerings and we’re delighted to be supporting iPad at launch. The fact iPad will provide PocketCloud users with a beautiful, large screen makes the combination of iPad and PocketCloud a natural fit.
