The Apple iPad gets WYSEr

A few weeks ago I blogged about the WYSE Pocket Cloud software for the iPhone.  Overall I really liked the capabilities the WYSE product and how it performed better than every other RDP solution I had seen for the iPhone.  As you are no doubt aware the Apple’s latest toy, the iPad, was recently released.  Not far behind that release, WYSE released its latest iPad ready version of the Pocket Cloud.  You can read more about it here:  http://www.crn.com/mobile/224201173;jsessionid=ZGV0Z0E4MRGQRQE1GHPSKH4ATMY32JVN

The Pocket Cloud for iPad will allow you to run a virtual Windows 7 session from your iPad.  This will solve a few minor issues that have come up in all of the reviews I’ve read about the iPad.  For one – multi-tasking.  Since the iPad OS is essentially the same as the iPhone or iPod Touch you can’t really run multiple apps at one time (not yet anyway).  With a full Windows 7 session running through the WYSE app you can not only multitask but run all of your Windows apps with ease.  Secondly – flash content.  The iPad will not run flash but in theory you could run flash based apps and content through your Windows session.  Now, how well this will work is yet to be seen but we’ll see.

Now, I haven’t actually been able to test the latest version of WYSE Pocket Cloud myself on the iPad since I still have to wait for the 3G iPad to be released at the end of this month, but it’s on order already.  As soon as I get it you can bet that the WYSE software will be the first thing loaded.  Stay tuned for hands on review and possibly a demo video.

      Sounds like you’ve had some issues. It was one of the first apps I installed and I’ve never had an issue with it. I’ve found it to be pretty intuitive and luckily haven’t needed any kind of support or documentation yet.
