Control your PC with Remote Control App

Control your PC with Remote Control App

One of the main perks of owning a Windows Mobile device is the relationship between it and your Windows-running computer. By taking advantage of the interconnectivity between the two, you can put the phone to good use even when you have something larger to work with.

BigMani‘s Remote Control App for Windows Mobile is one of numerous good examples of this. The application, which is available in English and German, uses a WLAN or an ActiveSync connection to allow you to control various functions on your PC through your Windows Phone.

Included is the ability to control media players (including VLC), mice, keyboards, presentation software and Windows Media Center.

The application should work on all WVGA-resolution Windows Mobile devices provided that they are running Windows Mobile 6.0+ and .NET Compact Framework version 3.5. You can find the download link in the application thread.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above.
