hopTo at Citrix Synergy 2016 Review and Podcast – How to Touch-Enable Remote XenApp Applications

At Citrix Synergy 2016, I had the pleasure to talk to Barry Flanagan, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at hopTo. He explained to me how they can make remote desktop applications touch-friendly on a mobile device.

The technology is pretty exciting. There is an agent on the XenApp server and a client that runs on top of Citrix Receiver. There are three main features that make the hopTo for Work client touch-friendly:

MAX Control

Instead of scrolling through tiny menus, MAX Control brings the most important tasks to the bottom of the screen. So, if you always enter data in an accounting app and then you export them, you could have the “Export” button at the bottom of your screen. Technology-wise, hopTo is working with keyboard shortcuts that they present as buttons.

MAX Zoom

Max Zoom allows you to zoom into an input field and re-position it to make sure that the upcoming keyboard does not cover it. In addition, you will see input fields with all their options like on local Safari and not only one option that you would see on the non-optimized Windows application.
