Logging into EasyBid OnLine
The following is what you will do each time to get into EasyBid Online. In Pocket Cloud’s main screen, you should now see your new connection, named “easybid” or whatever you used as your Nickname above. Tap it to connect to the server.
After a few moments, the EasyBid OnLine Login screen should appear. Enter your FICO Code and EasyBid Password.
Tip: If the on-screen keyboard does not appear automatically, a long push of the device’s menu button should make it pop up. Equally, you can hide the keyboard at any time with two short pushes of the menu button. Tap in each of the boxes to fill them in and tap OK.
EasyBid OnLine should now be up and running on your Android device!
Hints and tips A feature which you may find useful to help you navigate around Pocket Cloud is the “Touch Pointer” which can be activated by a short press of the device’s menu key. It acts like a mouse, and is more accurate than finger taps. Once you’ve got it worked out, it speeds things up considerably. There are instructions in Pocket Cloud’s Help section. It is worth playing around with the screen resolution settings to see what works best. You can get back into the settings screen from the Pocket Cloud main menu, by pushing and holding the “easybid” connection and selecting Edit. Also try whether you find portrait or landscape mode better, by rotating the device. On a phone’s small screen I actually find portrait works best for me.
