    Droid control via your PC

    Just wondering if there is an app that can be used to control my Droid from my PC. This would be especially useful while I am working. I know its possible to an extent as there is a SMS manager on the PDA.NET app that allows you to type back your responses to SMS messages.

    I guess even something along those lines would be nice, but full control would be even more awesome!

    Motorola Phone Portal gets close to this, I think it comes included on the Milestone. It has limited functions, but SMS and file explorer work ok via wifi. Try the wifi version, I don't think the usb one works that great, and it seems to work best on Internet Explorer. Read up on it here:

    I know there's a thing out there where you can view your droid screen (as if you were looking at the phone) from your computer and use the mouse as you would with your finger. I forget what it's called tho and I couldn't figure out how to use it but it has a very slow fps rate.

    I've used Motorola Phone Portal, and it doesn't allow you control your droid. It will only allow syncing your pictures, media, etc.

    Is this what you were thinking of?

    Android Screen Monitor - adakoda

    Which I couldn't get working. Would be cool if something could figure it out.

    It's essentially the Android equivalent of MyMobiler (WM). Still in early development but works pretty well.
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    Kinda buggy, but cool none the less.
