Wyse PocketCloud rises above the competition to take home top honors in the Productivity Category of the Appy Awards

Wyse PocketCloud™, the leading mobile app that allows users to access their PC and virtual desktops easily via their smartphone or tablet, has been honored with an Appy Award for Best Productivity App. The annual Appy Awards, presented by MediaPost, honor the best in mobile, social, and web once a year. An online equivalent of entertainment industry awards, the Appys are among the most coveted awards in the industry – and the competition is fierce. PocketCloud’s win distinguishes it as an elite app for users who want to get more out of their mobile devices by bringing the full computing power of a PC to the palm of their hand.

The Appys are chosen by a jury of the industry’s top mobile and marketing experts. Winners must survive two rounds of scrutiny in order to be awarded top honors. Other Appy winners include Chase, Flipboard, the ASPCA, O Magazine, Photobucket and Ask.com.

PocketCloud owned 2010 – securing its role as an industry leader on Google Android and Apple iOS platforms. PocketCloud has been downloaded more than 600,000 times on mobile devices, a milestone that the vast majority of apps will never reach. PocketCloud outperforms its competition by providing enterprise-class security and performance along with consumer-centric usability and functionality. Its flexible implementation using industry standards and proven Wyse virtualization technology – compared to the competition delivering solutions with proprietary interfaces and less secure connectivity – makes PocketCloud the app-of-choice for all users.

PocketCloud is diving headfirst into 2011 by focusing on the growing intersection of mobile devices and the cloud. Wyse flipped the script when it decided to offer both its iOS and Android apps for free at the end of 2010, and 2011 will bring even more landscape-shifting features and value for the PocketCloud apps.

“Given the intense competition and excellent products in this year’s productivity category, we are proud that PocketCloud’s functionality and security features were able to stand out above the rest,” said Daniel Barreto, general manager at Wyse’s mobile cloud business unit. “This makes all the work we put into providing the best user experience very rewarding in the end.”
