NEW YORK, June 25 /PRNewswire/ — The world's most compatible platform, the Glide OS, just got more compatible. Version 3.1 of Glide's Synchronization Application, "One," is now available for download at http://www.GlideOS.com. Version 3.1 ushers in a new era for remote desktop computing with enhanced local support for your favorite desktop applications including Microsoft Office. In addition, Glide is also doubling its free storage plan from 5GBs to 10GBs. Users can add 20GB increments for $4.95 a month or $49.95 a year.
Glide now makes it possible for you to work, for example, on a Microsoft Word Document in the Microsoft Word application at home or at work with all changes automatically saved to all targeted PCs and accessible from over 75 mobile phones. The files and applications are never remote, so there is no latency. But, the latest changes are always available on all of your targeted computers and from mobile phones thanks to Glide's synchronization and cross-platform compatibility technology. You can choose to work locally using your favorite desktop applications like Microsoft Office or you can use Glide's productivity application suite. The choice is yours. Other users can even securely collaborate with you from their local desktops and all changes are automatically saved to all targeted PCs and accessible from mobile phones. All previous versions of a file are stored and accessible through Glide's Version Control.
In contrast, leading traditional Remote Desktop Solutions provide access to files on other PCs but with more effort and without real cross-platform file format support. Users of traditional Remote Desktop Solutions are accustomed to experiencing latency and are forced to login multiple times with different user names and passwords just to access another computer. The cost can be as much as $180.00 a year for a single account. With traditional VPN Solutions, copying files to and from another computer can be very slow. Remote Desktop capabilities bundled with your local operating system (for example Microsoft's Remote Desktop) do not provide mobile collaborative access and cross-platform support is limited.
"Companies like Microsoft and Adobe have a very different approach to compatibility and anytime, anywhere access than we do," said TransMedia Chairman & CEO, Donald Leka. "What they are effectively saying is everyone use our software and then everyone will be compatible. What we are saying is use whatever software you like and be compatible with everyone regardless of OS, hardware, software, file format and network."
Glide is the complete mobile desktop solution featuring more than 20 advanced productivity and collaboration applications with both offline and online access. Glide runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, Android, Blackberry, iPhone, Palm, Symbian and Windows Mobile — and supports over 75 mobile devices. Glide is available in 18 languages including English, Albanian, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai and Turkish.
