All this talk about Apple’s Cloud service may have interested many of its users. But for Android users, it is actually nothing new. What’s new, however, is the new Android app called PocketCloud Explore—an app developed by Wyse Technology in order to help its users gain a remote access with their PCs and Macs.

With the help of the app, you can easily search, view, or even organize your files on up to two remote computers. This can all be done through your own Android device. In a nutshell, it allows you to sync your data without having to go through the expensive cloud storage service fees. Through your Android device, you do not have to wait until the time you get home to view and open your remote files. At the same time, you have a chance to upload your photos to your home desktop computer without the necessity of using cables. Other file management options you can do include create, rename, and delete folders and documents.

So if you have an important presentation and you’re missing a file, you simply have to search the file on your device. This gives you a fast way to manage your files on your computer even if you’re tucked away in your office.

How to Setup PocketCloud Explore on Your Android

  • Install the app on your computer. If you haven’t done so, here’s the link to download it.
  • Sign in using your Gmail account
  • That’s it!

 

On the down side, the app is a paid application which will cost you $0.99. The app supports a number of smartphones providing a support for version 2.1 and higher.  You can find it categorized under productivity. Or you can download it by clicking this link.

Here’s a video that best explains how the app works:
