When CloudOn launched, it was so popular that the service was up and down for several days.. This apparently was just based on usage from United States users, as CloudOn has now announced that their app is available in the UK.

This means that more users will get to use Microsoft Office applications like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel using CloudOn’s cloud computing technologies. As this is a cloud-based solution, there appears to be mild input lag when operating with the apps. Files still can be saved and loaded from Dropbox, although these require to be saved in Office formats; opening up plaintext or markdown formats in Word isn’t possible at the moment. This is all still available for the low, low cost of free as the service begins to roll out. For users looking for a new way to use their familiar Microsoft Office tools directly on their iPad, this is a very viable option.

Wyse is a company name that might be familiar to many. Around for the past 30 years, Wyse has been responsible for numerous personal computers back in the 1980s and now it’s most well known for its desktop virtualization and cloud computing.

Cloud computing is something we’ve discussed before and for a very good reason – it’s not only hugely useful but also potentially the future of a lot of technology. In the case of Wyse PocketCloud, it enables users to have access to their Windows or Mac based computer through their iPhone or iPad. Users can then access any file they wish, browse the web (including all important Flash sites) and run any applications they wish on their desktop. We already covered much of what PocketCloud is capable of previously but this potential has been extended further.

Having just reached the all important 1 millionth download of the app, PocketCloud has had further enhancements added to it. Version 2.1 now offers optional Premium subscription services which give the user the ability to download, print and email files. There’s also the capability of streaming videos and music from a home desktop to PocketCloud and a file browser to make searching for the ever useful files that bit easier. Priced at a mere $1 per month, that’s some pretty extensive functionality for the price.

For both the personal and business user, PocketCloud offers a great way of always being near to the home PC. Easily set up either via a Gmail account or manually, it takes seconds to set the system up and then professional users could securely access files for a presentation or business transaction. Personal users could use it to access their music collection or videos that they haven’t previously stored on their iOS device.

Wyse PocketCloud is out now in two varieties. There’s a free version and a professional version priced at $14.99 and offering extended functionality. Plus of course in-app purchases to carry on the subscription.
