Celio introduces free Redfly Viewer, does away with need for hardware

redfly-mobile-viewer Celio Corp, makers of the REDFLY Mobile Companion, today announced a public beta of the new REDFLY Mobile Viewer PC software for Windows XP and Vista.

The REDFLY Mobile Viewer is a software product allowing smartphone users to use their favourite Windows Mobile applications at full size on their PCs.

“Customer feedback is critical to Celio’s strategy as we continue to innovate and deliver products that meet the critical needs of our customers,” said Kirt Bailey, president and CEO of Celio Corp. “By releasing the REDFLY Mobile Viewer as a public beta, we can get feedback from as broad an audience as possible. This program will give thousands of new users a taste of REDFLY’s technology and demonstrate how incredibly productive they could be with their smartphone once they can combine the smartphone’s applications and connectivity with a larger keyboard and screen.”

The REDFLY Mobile Viewer works with all current REDFLY-compatible smartphones. The software gives users access to all of the smartphone’s applications and features via a Windows PC, including the ability to send and receive SMS messages and e-mail in a full-screen window. The REDFLY Mobile Viewer is a great tool for multitasking, allowing users to interact and use both the smartphone platform and the PC platform simultaneously via the PC.

The REDFLY Mobile Viewer is the only smartphone desktop software to increase the phone’s output screen resolution, allowing the smartphone user to view more information at a time. REDFLY Mobile Viewer users may select from four different resolutions (800×480, 800×600, 1024×600 or 1024×768) to view their smartphone screen in a larger PC window.

The REDFLY Mobile Viewer software doesn’t just make the smartphone’s existing screen bigger, it actually gives the user more screen “real estate” to see more of a website, read an email without scrolling, view six to 10 times the cells on a spreadsheet, etc. — without having to zoom and pan around the screen.  While this feature is attractive, and in this way provides a feature that is not available on similar apps like MyMobiler, it remains to be seen whether the Redfly viewer is compelling enough and app to generate a following.
