Bachmann Software has released a Windows Mobile version of FilePoint Exchange.
This lets Pocket PC and Smartphone users wirelessly connect to a PC and browse its folders and mapped network drives, then download their documents, spreadsheets, and other files directly to their device.
FilePoint Exchange also allows users to search the contents of the remote computer using a search engine powered by Google Desktop Search.
Full security is maintained during data transmissions by FilePoint’s system of passwords and strong encryption.
“This remote access tool is a powerful complement to Windows Mobile, enabling business users to stay connected to their most critical information – and allowing functionality to view and edit these documents any time, any where,” said Jeff McKean, product manager, Mobile & Embedded Devices Division at Microsoft Corp.
This application is compatible with all Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs capable of achieving a Wireless Network connection. FilePoint’s server component requires a Windows-based desktop computer with Internet access. Google’s Desktop Search is also optionally required in order to use the remote desktop search capability.

FilePoint Exchange is available now on the Bachmann web site, as well as online software stores.
The regular price is $49.99, but it is currently available at an introductory price of $39.99.
