3am Labs is introducing some enhanced Pocket PC functionality to its logmein.com service. The company is also gathering usability feedback for future releases from its new Pocket PC Advisory Board.
"Mobile professionals were some of the earliest adopters of our technology and continue to be among our most dedicated users," said Michael Simon, CEO, 3am Labs. "Their direct feedback has resulted in specific features that make using LogMeIn the easiest, most secure and practical way to remotely access a remote computer with a Pocket PC."
The company says the new functionality is being added to make the Pocket PC experience as close a possible to the desktop or laptop. The list of existing features and new features include Remote Control, Formatting to Fit the Pocket PC Screen, File Transfer, Landscape Views, Shortcuts and File Share.
The File Share function allows users to find and share files directly from a PC using a secure link, which eliminates the hassle of files that are too large for email.
The company says there are more than one million LogMeIn users, with over 200,000 using Pocket PCs to acces the service. 3am Labs invited its Pocket PC users to participate in one of two groups: a Pocket PC Advisory Board and a Pocket PC User Group. Feedback from both groups will enable 3am Labs to develop product enhancements that overcome these challenges.
The Advisory Board, comprised of an elite group of LogMeIn power users and industry insiders, will provide feedback and development ideas through private quarterly web conferences, user surveys, and online forums.
The broader User Group comprises more than 2,000 self selected LogMeIn and Pocket PC users who will participate through online user forums, usability testing, Beta-testing, interviews and surveys.
