Review – MyQuickCloud

Written by 

MyQuickCloud (MQC) is one of those products that does what it says on the tin. Essentially it allows you to use an application or access a desktop, from a range of devices from other desktops to iOS and Android devices.

To get MQC running you have to register with the website, then download and install either a server or a client application system on a Mac or Windows device. It’s a small, 27Mb download so there’s no long waits to download or install. There’s also an iOS or Android app if you’re using a mobile device, and once again it’s a small download – although you also need to add Microsoft’s Remote Device application.

MyQuickCloud comes in three different formats: a Standard User for a single user to remotely access a single application from multiple locations e.g. the office, home or on holiday, Pro for those who need additional functionalities, such as remote access to a desktop, or remote access to multiple applications, or access anywhere from a mobile device, tablet or smartphone; and Enterprise, which can be used by any organisation with multiple users and MQC will host.

The software is fairly straightforward to use and we had the system up and running in around an hour, however it would have been a lot quicker if MQC had been a bit clearer in its online instructions – some of the online instructions were incorrect and others were missing some parts. Our second installation took 10 minutes.

MQC Client Publish App 2

Using MQC we were able to view and interact with Windows desktops on Android and iOS devices and to share Windows apps on a Mac and with other Windows devices. Choosing the app to share is just a matter of selecting the name of the app from the automatically produced list and clicking once. Working remotely was simple to do, however working on a full-size Windows desktop on a small phone screen was tricky. It was at least usable and would be ideal in an emergency, but we wouldn’t want to use it permanently.

MQC does exactly what it says on the tin, and should be considered if you’re looking for a quick way to mobilise a desktop application or share an application amongst multiple users.
