hopTo Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of GraphOn Corporation, today announced the limited beta release of their revolutionary new product, hopTo, for the flourishing mobile-to-PC marketplace. In aiming to bring a more natural and intuitive approach to remote desktop accessibility, hopTo offers a new kind of user experience for interacting with and editing documents remotely on tablets and other mobile devices.
hopTo, which is available as a limited beta as of today, boasts a number of significant advantages over various competing products. Rather than simply displaying the remote desktop on the mobile device using traditional "screen-scraping" techniques, hopTo allows users to browse, edit and save documents and files on their PC through an easy, user-centric, multi-touch enhanced user interface that feels natural to the mobile device.
"We are excited for the world to experience hopTo – we believe it is the most personal and intuitive mobile productivity app currently available," said Eldad Eilam, President and CEO of hopTo Inc. "Mobile devices have changed the way we live, providing instant access at our fingertips. hopTo has the potential to transform the way we connect to and interact with our most important documents, regardless of where they are stored. It offers the power and flexibility of the PC, but with a mobile-centric user experience."
Each subsequent update promises additional impressive features. Expect to see full support for the Microsoft Office Suite™, expansion into cloud storage services, and support for multiple PCs. While hopTo is currently compatible with the iPad®, users can expect to access the software on iPhone® and Android® devices in upcoming releases.
"hopTo brings an unprecedented level of freedom and convenience to mobile users. All of your documents are literally just a touch away and can be accessed and edited from anywhere in the world, simply, from a mobile device," said Christoph Berlin, COO of hopTo Inc. "Moreover, with the ability to search, access and edit files on your personal PC and cloud storage services simultaneously, tablet devices will take on an entirely new role in the personal cloud environment."
