    Announcing the RouterRemote Beta test (name suggestions are accepted)

    RouterRemote is an app designed to ease router administration and can be used as a minimal Web browser also.

    Simply launch RouterRemote and select Menu -> Settings

    You will find five settings available here which are:

    Router Username, Router Password, Root URL, Homepage and UserAgent.

    The first two will be your routers WebUI username/password, Root URL is the IP Address or hostname of your router including http:// and port number if not port 80 (may add port setting as I just thought about it).

    Homepage is a little misleading, this option allows you to set any URL you like (can be google.com...etc) and reach this favorite by clicking the icon/RouterRemote text on the top left of the main interface.

    The UserAgent option allows you to pretend to be other browsers. Currently three agents are available (Mobile, Chrome, and Googlebot). If you don't know what this is for simply set it to Mobile.

    The menu options are all self explanatory with Root being the exception, the Root menu option is a shortcut to the URL you chose in the "Root URL" settings dialog

    After you finish setup press the back button then select Menu -> Root and you should see your routers WebUI.

    Images are not loaded by default, when you want to see images simply select the Load Images menu option.

    I have only tested this on a Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.2 so please report what device you are using and Android ROM/Revision if you have an issue. If your issue is WebUI related also post your router model and firmware revision.

    Download URL: http://bit.ly/rremote

    *Edits*
    Latest update includes refresh menu option and a new preference UserAgent.

    To anyone with icon skills, I would love a 512x512 icon for this app. Of course the credited creator would be listed here and eventually in the Play Store description.

    The current icon is just a temporary I grabbed from somewhere.

    I really don't have any idea, anything clever will do. I appreciate the effort.

    This is where I'm at now. If you think it'll work, I can add some text & maybe something else on the screen of the phone

    is this akin to the new IR remotes found in the newer devices.

    Does it control your media PC through your wifi? I think i may be missing the point of this app

    It's really just a specialized web browser.

    This could work for the main Play Store image but not as an icon.

    Nice attempt but I am looking for something like this icon I knocked up in gimp:

    If you use gimp here is the xcf for the above image: http://bit.ly/16cyLXP

    Yep, only use gimp. And I see what you're after. I was just trying to break away from the norm of square & circle icons.

    I try to semi-follow the android developers guidelines. My app ClearVM includes the name of the app in the icon (this is a no-no according to Google) but it was my attempt at creating an icon entirely in blender.

    I'm pretty good with blender and gimp, I just don't have much time to develop and create associated icons. There are at least five apps on my device I have written that aren't published because I haven't created the needed icons.

    I really appreciate your efforts CJM, I'm in no rush for the icon so don't worry about time.

    Doesn't seem to be much interest in this app, it was written for my own use but I found it so useful I figured others may as well.

    I understand now. I don't know Google's requirements for that stuff. I make it like I want. I get bored with the norm. That's why I made it like I did.

    I changed the icon to the one I made since it looks better than the key thing it was using before and also added an xxhdpi (tablet) icon while I was at it.

    Any reports of this working or not, I only have three routers and it works on them but I would like to know if it supports more routers.

    A couple of issues have arisen that must be resolved.

    1. HTTPS is broken
    2. Javascript dialogs (such as "Are you sure you want to reboot?") are broken.

    Not certain when I will have time to fix, but I will update the thread after these issues are resolved.
