For example, many SNS platforms can’t open the function of saving chat history in cloud and even VIP just store limited chat history, But now you just need save your chat history in synchronizing directories, all your problems can be solved.

PocketCloud APP focus on remote desktop，pay more attention to remote control software in computer，such as，PPT,PPS, Internet Explorer etc. However, the other two function including files transmission and personal cloud share is not so mature and convenient as the remote desktop, the up/download speed is limited, especially free users just enjoy limited speed and storage space.

xCloud’s main highlights is P to P transfer, download and upload your pictures and files from PC to phone. The speed can surpass 10MB/S under 300M and 450M WiFi. There is no the third server to store your data, so the safety is trusted more than Dropbox. xCloud also is favored by users loving to transmit files and pictures, especially Shot and Send, uploading pictures to your computer automatically after finishing taking photos is very hot in Chinese teenage.
PocketCloud has three packages, and you have to install VNC into your computer to work it successfully. That’s mean you need to download three times if you want to use all functions. All functions are assembled one package, when finishing download xcloud from Google play, you can use Shot and Send, Auto upload and other functions. Besides, the install procedure is very sample without any settings.
PocketCloud provides a thirty-day free trial for the public, but the transfer speed is limited within 25 MB ,and the storage space is limited within 2 GB for free version. xCloud is one totally free APP for Android version by now, even VIP fee is just 4.99 $ which is more cheaper than similar cloud products a lot.
