AlwaysOnPC’s Virtual PC App continues to break mobile barriers to unlock powerful features like screen-sharing, web meetings, and editing of Powerpoint presentations, spreadsheets, images, graphics, charts and more from Cloud-based services like Zoho, Office 365, and Google Apps on mobile devices.

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2011

Xform Computing, Inc. announces a giant leap forward in mobile productivity by enabling mobile access to Cloud-based productivity and business websites, and web conferencing: The latest release of Xform’s AlwaysOnPC® App has completed testing that demonstrates excellent mobile compatibility with the top online productivity websites, bringing users rich functionality of these services on iOS and Android devices.

A growing number of Cloud-based services have built their offerings on Flash, Java script or applets, Silverlight, and even many HTML5 features which don’t work correctly on the native iPad or Android Browsers. Thus, only a subset of the functionality of these sites is available on mobile devices. Examples include Zoho®, Microsoft’s Office 365®, Quickbooks Online, Google® Apps, and many more. The AlwaysOnPC Mobile App bridges this gap.

AlwaysOnPC gives users access to a complete virtual computer directly from their iPad or Android device, liberating them to use these powerful services. For example, using Chrome inside AlwaysOnPC users can perform tasks in Zoho, Office 365, or Google Docs that are often difficult or impossible on mobile apps and browsers: Create, upload or import documents and presentations from online storage or other web repositories; Use full editing features, including the ability to create, re-touch, insert and re-size images, graphics, tables and charts into documents or Powerpoint slides; Even copy and paste this rich content between apps, just like on a computer.

AlwaysOnPC also enables mobile collaboration: The Zoho Meeting web conferencing/screen-sharing solution relies on Flash and Java-applets and does not work on native mobile browsers. However with AlwaysOnPC, users can initiate and host Zoho Meetings from iPad, iPhone, or Android with participants on any device or computer. They can share their AlwaysOnPC screen to conduct presentations, demonstrations, webinars and more, and even delegate presenter controls to participants.

Similar mobile compatibility challenges face Office 365, Quickbooks Online, and even Google Apps such as Sites or Docs editing (especially Powerpoint presentations) which rely on desktop browser technology. In addition to unlocking the full productivity promise of these cloud-based services on mobile devices, AlwaysOnPC also includes the OpenOffice suite, Gimp image editor, InkScape illustration program and Dropbox access.

Demonstration Video:

AlwaysOnPC is available for purchase and download in iTunes and the Android Market:
