How To Run Windows Apps From The Cloud ?
Spoon’s running virtualized versions of popular Windows software on any PC using cloud. Spoon now supports only the Windows apps from the cloud, but the company assures to launch it for other platforms too.
Spoon should be used for many possible reasons.
Why do you have to use Spoon?
Let us say you have two different desktops, one at home,one at office and a laptop. You have been using several programs installed such as Chrome,Firefox,Notepad++,Vlc etc. While you have primed these apps on all your devices,there is no admin access on the office Pc to customize it how you want those apps.
There are other scenarios too. For one, all of these are virtualized apps, which means they don’t have to be installed on your PC. Not only does this keep the Windows registry clean and the system running smooth, but you also don’t have to bother with the hassle of reinstalling the apps in the future – Spoon maps apps to your login and remembers your settings.
How to Run Spoon?
Firstly you have to download and install the Spoon Console on your pc.
You then have to sign up for Spoon.net and key in the details into your console.
The spoon Console is seen at the bottom right of your screen, above the clock and system tray.
It has a search bar to quickly type and launch any app, but clicking it or hitting the Alt+Win hotkey will open up a Start Menu-like console.
Here you will be seeing your most recently used Spoon programs, as well as recommendations.
The user can also browse around through all the applications available, which are neatly sorted into five main categories – Productivity, Tools, Social, Media, Games – with sub-categories for each. Of course, searching for an app you already know you want is easier.
Apps come with a small description, along with options for the version number you want to run. The version number feature isn’t available for all the apps, but most popular ones support this.
You can find the app which you want and click on it for spoon to start buffering the program.
