hopTo: Your Desktop Computer on Your Tablet
In this day and age, more and more people are working remotely. The office can be a coffee shop, beach, or library. Before the explosion of tablets, remote workers lugged their laptops around with them wherever they went. But now we have tablets, which are lighter and smaller and therefore more portable. Still, computers have the capacity to get more done. Fortunately, Campbell, California-based hopTo has developed a solution that combines the strength of the desktop with the freedom of the tablet.
hopTo lets you access your desktop files and applications on your tablet. And don't worry about fumbling around an interface that was built for the mouse; hopTo is designed to take full advantage of the tablet platform in an attractive and easy-to-use package. According to the hopTo team, the app began with the simple idea of using a tablet to access written documents on a computer. Then they saw the potential for it to be more simple, fun, and mobile, and the rest is history.
