We’ve all done it before… You know, served as tech support for our friends and family. After all, there’s no reason not to. What use is knowing about technology if you can’t help others use it more effectively?
Whatever your intentions, circumstances often make helping others with their tech needs a bit more difficult than they need to be. What if, for instance, your parents purchase a new smartphone or tablet and ask you to help them set it up? If you happen to live a ways away, you would ordinarily be subjected to the torturous pains of over-the-phone tech support. There is, however, a better way.
Zikk Remote Android Setup by XDA Forum Member zikkapp hopes to solve this. By allowing you to remotely setup a friend’s phone, you can do what you need from the comfort of your own phone, wherever you may be. The app allows you to remotely download apps, change WiFi settings, modify sound and display settings, set a wallpaper, and much more.
If you’re constantly hounded for help by your friends and loved ones, this could prove quite useful—unless, of course, you don’t wish to perpetually be their tech support hotline. Head over to the application thread to get started._________
