    Here at DroidForums, we like to toss something your way once in a while, and I thought this would be fun to start with. This application was very popular with users back in the old Windows Phone days, and now with Android support, it has sadly been overlooked. The application allows you to connect to your computer via 3G or WiFi and control the mouse and keyboard without any physical connection to it. The controls are very simple and the application looks very nice. The features (below) are even more impressive.

    • use your PDA as mouse, keyboard, joystick or remote controller to PC
    • control your PC over [FONT=&quot]WiFi, Bluetooth or 3G[/FONT]
    • enjoy with GRemote and create new skins especially for your favorite application
    • define profiles for many applications in one applet
    • use your built-in GSensor as an analogue joystick for PC and mouse control
    • control any application you want!!!
    • browse your PC files using exprorer extension
    • manage Winamp and Aimp2 playlist directly from your phone
    • define many actions to one button [FONT=&quot](e.g. change resolution, display OSD and Run application)[/FONT]
    • works with [FONT=&quot]Windows Mobile[/FONT] and [FONT=&quot]Android[/FONT] devices
    • compatible with Windows XP, Vista and [FONT=&quot]Windows 7[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]Wake on Lan[/FONT] client included -[FONT=&quot] new!!![/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]lifetime updates free!!![/FONT]
    More features (GRemote - the best way to control PC using PDA (About GRemotePro))

    This application is the first of many we will try to send your way. To get your chance at 1 of 5 copies we are giving away, simple reply and let us know why you should get it and how you would use it.
    Enjoy this fun little contest we are doing to make your Friday a little better.

    NOTICE: There is a free version of this app in the Market. This is a permanent version of this app. The one in the market is only temporary.

    you'd be better off with a remote desktop app, as you won't see the screen with this app.

    I'd plug my laptop into my 40" 1080p sammy and use the app to navigate through and play my extensive porn collection while I'm laying in bed.

    I want it because I'm a criminal defense attorney and use computers in the courtroom to show evidence, make arguments, etc. If I could control them with my android I wouldn't have to constantly go to the desk to use a mouse.

    Also, my house has a computer in every room, including one attached to the stereo in my living room, and being able to use my phone to rc them all would be, well, just really cool.

    I have my pc setup to pipe video to my tv in another room and I also often pipe music from my pc to other parts of the house. I've tried several remote-control apps but this one sounds like it has more potential. Android FTW! dancedroid

    Would diffidently like one.....

    I currently use wireless when doing presentations, but having this I could walk around and move the mouse. At home I do the same when I have the laptop connected to the TV. Fingers crossed

    I think it would be awesome to be able to use my phone as my remote while teaching classes on explosive and I.e.d.'s. My current targus remote is covered in duct tape and it would be nice to be able to do more than click forward and back while presenting. Never even thought of something like this. Another reason andy rocks.

    I'm a college student working on a degree in computer science/computer architecture, and I believe that this application would be ideal for me. I have at least one or two visual presentations that I must give each week to my class and teacher, and having this application would greatly increase the speed of my presentations, as well as making my presentations look better because I would be using technology to its fullest. I've tried 10+ remote apps, as well as a few remote desktop apps for this purpose, and none of them work well without having some major glitches. I've spent probably around $60 on apps for this purpose, and none of them have been worth it.
