What is AndRemote?AndRemote is a highly customizable Remote-Control for the Google Android Platform. AndRemote allows you to remote control any possible programm on your computer, by emulating mouse and keyboard-commands just as if you would manually enter them on your PC.
With the PluginLayoutBuilder one can easily create new remote controls for any application - and then share them with the whole world.
Check out the variety of available layouts here.
AndRemote is not limited to applications directly, one can program it to do anything you could manually do on your PC.
Examples:Let us give you an example: the VLC (Video Lan Client)-Remote Control.
You can easily control all important features of the VLC-Player, which is running on your computer, right from your Android phone - without ever standing up!
How it works:The AndRemote client sends highly efficient binary information to the server over any network (i.e. WiFi, 3G or 2G). Every command ist just a few bytes big and holds information on how the server should pretend, that a key was stroke or the mouse was moved. It doesn't make any difference to the computer whether you would type on its physical keyboard or use AndRemote.
Client-Compatibility:The AndRemote Client so far has been tested with the following devices:
- G1 (HTC Dream)
- G1 (HTC Dream, Developer version)
- HTC Magic
- Samsung Galaxy
- Motorola Droid/Milestone
Server-Compatibility:The AndRemote Server so far has been tested only with 'Windows 7 (64 Bit)' but is expected to be working with any Windows version (95 / 98 / ME / 2000 / NT / XP / Vista / 7 - 32 and 64 Bit) and probably every Linux and Mac operating system.
The only thing needed is an up-to-date Java installation (Get it here - free!).
