PocketCloud provides secure remote access to a Mac or Windows desktop from your iPhone or iPad. Through PocketCloud, you can access your files, photos, and applications like PowerPoint and Photoshop. Recently added features include an “explore” capability that provides a streamlined view of desktop file systems, so you can actually find what you’re looking for from that small smartphone screen. This feature also helps facilitate file sharing, especially when files are too large to email or download to your phone. A cloud storage component has also been released, but it is still in beta.
