Mobile device, VPS, and Alveo

Im really confused on how or if Alveo can be used with mobile devices. My understanding is Alveo can not be downloaded to an Android device, but when reading about the VPS service it seems to suggest that it can be used on mobile devices. So my question is, if I purchase the VPS will I be able to use a mobile device instead of a laptop or desktop? And if so, how is that possible? Thanks for any help that can clarify this for me.

You can run Alveo on a VPS. Apiary offers a pre-configured VPS. If your somewhat computer literate you can set-up your own VPS through Amazon or Google. I have mine set-up on Google.

The VPS is just a virtual computer. No different then the computer you have at home, just stuck up in the cloud somewhere. You are simple running Alveo on the VPS instead of your local computer. You could anything on the VPS, MS Word, Excel, WoW or other games (rememberits just like your computer at home).

You access you VPS from you home computer using Remote Desktop (or other programs). Remote Desktop is free. Once you have Remote desktop on your home computer you simply logon to your VPS.

Remote Desktop has an App that will let you logon to your VPS from your iPhone or iPad.

It's really fairly simple. Once you have your VPS up and running all you need is an internet connection and Remote Desktop installed on your device. From there it's "trade on"

Peace,

Thanks Greg, I'll follow your advice, seems simple enough. If I still can't get it I'll YouTube it, lol.

If you want - you can go through this thread - you'll find info that might be of use to you. - - Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) comes loaded with windows, it's just a matter of setting it up properly, aside from its defaults, changing some settings help speed things up a little....

Here's a picture of Alveo rev1 running on my VPS back in 2014-2015 which i accessed using my Samsung phone.

I just recently started using the app TeamViewer. It's a free app that I found for Android but they may have one for Mac as well. It's takes a little while to get use to but it allows me to access my home computer while on my mobile phone. Once there I can pretty much do anything that I could do while at home. I have two monitors and it allows me to switch between monitors. It's pretty self-explanatory and it's gives me the peace of mind knowing I can open or close a trade if I want to.

Thanks again Jean-Francois! I'm guessing the app I found works the same way. Using my app I can see everything on my desktop and even switch screens.

What program application would I use to have trades copied in real time that are placed on my PC to my account at Oanda?
Any suggestions?
