Abstract: Several existing Web-based tools allow users to access astronomical images and data from different surveys, almost all integrated with or accessible via Virtual Observatory (VO) portals. These tools are often too complex for most untrained users, including students and amateur astronomers. In this paper we present PocketVO, a simple interface to existing services such as the Sesame name resolver and many image cutout services. PocketVO provides a simple interface for untrained users for the display of astronomical images. We provide examples and also discuss possible extensions.
