Laplink is announcing the release of the retail version of Laplink Everywhere 4. The software combines remote control with a web interface for streamlined remote access from any web-enabled device.
Users can connect to a remote PC from a wide range of computers and handheld devices. Laplink Everywhere allows the user to access a remote Windows-based PC from Windows, Mac, or Linux-based computers and from Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone, Palm or Symbian devices. The software uses a special connection that goes through firewalls and routers, with no special configuration needed, safely and securely.
Unlike GoToMyPC and other browser-based remote control applications, Laplink Everywhere 4 offers both remote control and a web interface that provides streamlined access to files, email, calendar, contacts, notes, tasks, and Internet favorites. Plus, the integration with Google Desktop Search provides users with a fast method to locate remote files and emails from any web-enabled device without launching a remote control session.
"Laplink Everywhere 4 is a big hit with consumers, especially the ability to google a remote PC using a mobile device. No other product on the market provides this functionality," explains Thomas Koll, CEO of Laplink. "The increasing adoption rates for broadband and mobile technologies among consumers make Laplink Everywhere indispensable. Once people experience this product, they will wonder how they ever managed without it."
Laplink Everywhere 4 is available from stores such as CompUSA, Fry's, and Micro Center as well as online retailers like Amazon, Buy.com, CDW, Computers4SURE, Newegg, Staples, and Target. Suggested retail price is US$49.95.
