hopTo releases hopTo Work for Citrix

hopTo Inc., developer and provider of the most comprehensive mobile productivity platform today announced that its hopTo Work mobile workspace now provides a fully integrated Mobile App eXperience for Windows applications delivered via Citrix XenApp. hopTo, a Citrix Ready Premier Partner, has developed this new release, hopTo Work for Citrix, to provide Citrix Systems, Inc. customers with a simpler path to deploy hopTo Work and transform the user experience for Citrix published applications on iOS devices. Users of Apple's new iPad Pro will especially benefit from this new version of hopTo Work which is fully compatible with the new device.

hopTo has significantly enhanced its integration with the Citrix XenApp infrastructure and continues to build extensive mobilization capabilities for Citrix customers.  Joint customers can now easily combine hopTo Work with Citrix XenApp to transport and transform existing Windows Applications into touch friendly mobile apps with no coding required. Existing Windows applications delivered via Citrix XenApp can be touch enabled on mobile devices without altering the appearance of the app so that end users are immediately productive.  The hopTo Work MAX features (Mobile App eXperience) allow the creation of custom touch buttons to control Windows apps, significantly improve the user experience for input and editing of content and enable access to mobile device resources such as the camera to insert bar codes, QR codes, or photos directly into a Windows app from an Apple iPad, iPhone or Android device.  hopTo Work increases employee productivity without burdening the IT department while documents and data remain securely on the server without ever residing on the device.

"A great overall user experience is critical to the success of any Enterprise Mobility project. User experience is a complex goal that extends beyond an application's look-and-feel to describe the overall experience a user has while accessing all the data and applications they need to do their job. hopTo is laser focused on improving this," said Robin Brandl, VP of Products and Business Development at hopTo Inc. 

"Historically, each computing paradigm shift has required tools to help enterprises bridge the transition.  In the same way that Terminal Emulators helped PCs become established in the enterprise through access to the Mainframe; tools like hopTo Work and Citrix will help iOS devices become a broadly deployed enterprise asset through access to Windows Applications," added Robin.

Citrix customers will benefit from the following key features in hopTo Work or Citrix:

  • Supports XenApp 7.6 and 6.5 for virtual delivery of applications
  • Easy install and XenApp configuration
  • Full hopTo MAX including, MAXControl, MAXedit and MAXcam
  • Full, high-fidelity Office document editing

"hopTo Work for Citrix is just the latest example of hopTo's commitment to provide customers with intelligent solutions that leverage the capabilities of hopTo Work and Citrix XenApp," said Eldad Eilam, President and CEO of hopTo Inc.  "This new release delivers an exciting new mobile innovation on the Citrix platform. Citrix customers can now easily deploy hopTo Work with their Citrix infrastructure to provide mobile device users with a secure, great user experience for Windows apps and document editing on iOS. This new release is the foundation of our path to fully integrate hopTo Work with the Citrix environment."
