hopTo Work 2.0 launches with Mobile App eXperience feature set and Delivers on Android
hopTo, developer and provider of the most comprehensive mobile productivity platform, today announced the launch of hopTo Work 2.0.  This release has two far-reaching attributes.  The first is an advanced feature set called MAX - Mobile App eXperience, a disruptive mobile technology allowing users to transform their existing Windows based applications into touch-friendly, useable mobile apps, without the need for complex and expensive modifications of the original app.  Additionally, this release introduces hopTo Work for Android, which brings the same secure and productive workspace to Android users.

"hopTo Work bridges the gap between modern mobile devices and Windows-based mission-critical applications that businesses rely on daily," said Eldad Eilam, President and CEO, hopTo. "We make the mobile workspace flexible, secure and easy-to-use... a safe, plug and work environment."  Mr. Eilam continued, "In addition, hopTo Work on Android accelerates the reach of the offering to 95% of all tablets in the world." 

hopTo Work, first launched in November 2014, and was built upon hopTo's successful consumer application launched in 2013.  hopTo Work's mobile workspace was the first app to address the challenges of transporting Windows applications to mobile devices, delivering a rich user interface to take full advantage of the device's native technologies. By delivering existing Windows applications to mobile environments, hopTo Work continues to offer the best in instant BYOD functionality by providing a secure and flexible mobile workspace for accessing files, corporate email, SharePoint sites, and the organization's intranet web services and storage locations while providing full editing capabilities for Microsoft Office documents.

hopTo Work's MAX feature set does not require any coding to evolve current Windows applications into touch friendly mobile apps. hopTo's complete multi-tasking mobile productivity workspace, is incredibly user friendly, and offers superior security keeping all documents and content secure on the corporate network.

hopTo has a comprehensive vision for touch-enablement of Windows applications. This initial release of the MAX technology includes the following features:

  • MAXcontrol: For personalization of your application, MAXcontrol gives customers and partners the ability to customize touch-friendly features. These controls are tailored to the specific use-cases of a given application, providing easy access to frequently used functions. Using an intuitive administration tool within the hopTo Work Agent, IT personnel have the ability to create these customized functions for each application they choose to mobilize.
  • MAXedit: One of the biggest usability challenges with Windows apps on mobile devices is data and text entry. MAXedit greatly simplifies that process by providing controls to easily allow users to navigate across a data entry form, use the clipboard to cut and paste text, select text, Select All, Previous and Next.
  • MAXcam: Insert photos, scanned documents, bar codes and QR codes into a Windows application running on the server directly from a device's camera. Run the full Windows version of inventory, asset management, event or visitor tracking software right from your mobile device. MAXcam also allows full access to Windows-based barcode scanning without the need for expensive mobile or USB based-barcode scanners. Nothing ever resides on the device itself.
