Wyse Technology, the company behind some some powerful remote access apps, has released a new Android app into the Market today called PocketCloud Explore. The app is simple in nature, but quite practical in use, as it allows you to access the files store on your PC remotely from your Android device, safely and securely.

Need to find a file quick? No problem - Explore allows you to search across multiple computers to find exactly what you're looking for. The files will then open with their respective app on your device (i.e. a document or spreadsheet will open with QuickOffice, etc.), quick and painless.

You can also transfer an unlimited number of files from your device back to your PC - photos, videos, and audio files. Setup is simple, too; just install the companion app on your computer, sign in with Gmail, and you're good to go.

The app, which will normally cost $4.99, is on sale for $0.99 for the first 1000 downloads - hit the widget to grab your copy!

    So why use this over Dropbox? I can get my files faster via Dropbox. And I don't have to leave my computer on.

      Because your computer at home has more then 5 GB of storage? =)

    just downloaded it thinking 99 cents great deal, my computer showed online for the first minute then went offline, when i knew my workstation was 100% on, got a refund right away, ill use dropbox

    If I need a file, I'll just open TeamViewer to connect to my PC and put the file in Dropbox. All for free.

    One review indicates that the files shared are limited to what's under My Documents in Windows. If that's true, then its just too restrictive. Can anyone confirm?
