remote control android phone

Fri Dec 09, 2011 12:42 pm

I have rigged my pc up to my TV in the adjacent room and was wondering if there are any great control apps or wireless syncing apps I should be aware of to let my smartphone meld with my pc when home.

I'm primarily looking for a basic controller option but I'm curious if there is anything else I'm missing out on.

I have a HTC sensation 4G with 2.3 and I'm shifting through the app store found "pc controller" by clovis zhuang. Any thoughts?

Team Viewer works well enough for me, but I know there are a lot of other remote desktop applications out there that might work for you.
Lenovo W520
IBM dx340
Nokia Lumia 928
Sony a7 with far too many lenses to list or even count

Remotedroid works ok if you're just looking for keyboard/mouse support but you'll need to install a java based "server" on the computer you want to control with it.
