It’s the year of productivity. Everywhere you look on the Internet, in the App store, or when you log into banking or product sites, productivity is the current buzzword. Leaving you with the question, how can I be more productive, but still have work-life balance?
In the office, like everyone you have to juggle multiple projects (personal and work), distractions, email overload, and constant interruptions. As work and personal productivity becomes increasingly intertwined and more mobile, you have the added stress of trying to organize and manage files between your PC and your iPad. The solution is a truly connected productivity tool that’s quick and easy to use while you’re on the go.
Anywhere access is key
For the mobile traveler, sales person, marketer, or simply when you need to use a smaller device, setting up your iPad for true mobile productivity means having immediate access to all your work and personal files that are often located in different cloud storage providers and a home or office computer.
Creating your own personal cloud that includes access to documents and files that are located on Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and your PC is the first step toward mobile productivity. By centralizing everything you need in a single location, you’ll have that essential anywhere access to files and documents.
To be truly productive you will want to create and edit Office files and documents, view PowerPoint presentations and Adobe PDFs, and insert images in your documents when needed. The ability to open multiple files in a tabbed interface would make the iPad an even better productivity tool compared with the typical single task at a time usage.
You could try to patch several iPad apps together to attempt to accomplish all of these tasks, or you can choose one app – hopTo.
Optimized Productivity with application availability
At home, you may want to email and share personal and business files or work on a Word newsletter document for an organization where you perform volunteer work. When you’re on the road, you may need to edit and share Office documents while attending a conference or sales meeting. At work, you might need to edit an Excel budget, or view PowerPoint presentations while away from your desktop PC. In a single mobile workspace, hopTo enables you to multitask with the ability to edit Office documents and access remote files on your iPad, no matter where you are.
Even more productivity for your files
Further increasing your productivity is the intuitive multitasking interface of hopTo. Within the app space, hopTo places each document in its own separate, browser-like tab, letting you easily switch back and forth—something that iPad apps normally don’t let you do. The ability to track changes is a necessity for collaborative work, and hopTo provides this essential feature.
When you want to insert images into a Word document, you can use Google search from within the app or pull images from your camera roll. And for those who like to know where their files reside, hopTo has a built-in file manager and displays a list of recent files so you don’t have to search for them in the cloud.
The combination of centralized cloud storage and an app that connects to your PC from an iPad—with remote application access to Office documents—makes the iPad a true productivity tool.
The ease of sharing files in a centralized mobile workspace
And finally, sharing files has just gotten easier with hopTo’s centralized mobile workspace. Once you create, edit and save files in cloud storage, you can share them quickly with colleagues, family and friends through email or the cloud, giving you the flexibility to be productive from anywhere, anytime.
