DroidMote Brings Remote Control Functionality To Your Device

If you’ve ever wanted to be able to take control of either your PC or another Android device from your phone or tablet, this app may be something worth looking into. DroidMote by XDA Senior Member zulu99 is an app that will allow you to do just that. In the developers own words:

“DroidMote is not only a remote mouse, a remote keyboard, a remote gamepad and a remote multi touch touchpad, but it is something more. In fact, with the Gamepad2Touch feature allows you to use all the applications and games that were developed to support only devices with touch screen. Imagine you want remote control a game, designed for touch screen devices on your large TV Full HD, with DroidMote you can.”

The application is composed of two parts: a client for the device you will be using as the remote controller and a server for the device(s) to be controlled. The device on which you are installing the server will require root access. Once the app is installed and both devices are connected to the same local network, you are all set. Compatible with all Android devices and PCs running either Windows or Linux, this is an incredibly versatile application.

The application thread contains a wealth of information pertaining to the app itself and how to set up everything to meet your needs, including details of remapping the keys and games that are compatible with its “real gamepad” emulation feature.

If this appeals to you, check it out by visiting the application thread.
