    So I'm wondering if anyone has heard of any apps where you can use your phone as a remote control for you pandora-playing pc.

    I'm totally envisioning myself being in a completely different room jammin out to my pandora stations and skipping/liking/disliking songs via WiFi or whatever.

    Ahh, wishful thinking... :)

    I hope this becomes reality!

    Your title is exactly what i typed into google so there are obviously more people thinking the exact same thing.

    We can do it with our Itunes so why not Pandora.....hopefuly more people talk about this because I want it!!

    Remote for PC Pandora via Android

    So here's the workaround!

    Get PRemoteDroid from marketplace and install on your 'droid phone

    follow the instructions for installing server app on your pc (mac?)

    run the server app; (get your pc's ip address)

    start a new connection on your phone;
    password can be left default or you can change

    enter the ip address of your pc in the field:
    192.168.xxx.xxx
    just type right over it; I was confused at first and kept getting
    connection issues (I had been trying to erase the text), but when
    I just went to the box and started entering the IP, I was able to
    connect almost instantly.

    There are other features including a limited screen capture, but really
    this app functions as a great mouse for your screen (including controlling
    pandora, etc.) I have a projector, and it works great for movie control,
    whether dvd, netflix, vlc, etc. because you're just controlling your computer.

    Until someone actually creates a pandora volume widget, this is the next
    best thing!!

    I found a program called PandoraBoy. It works with Mac OS!! It is its own application that lets you use Pandora without using a browser. It has an option to use your Apple Itunes Remote (I haven't tried yet) and also has "global hotkeys" that you can enter.

    I am in no position to mess around with it now but I think this application may be our solution! Download and mess around with it.....I'll update once I test it out.

    Premotedroid: security on PC will not allow install

    Security on PC will not allow install. I have McAfee Verizon Internet Security Suite running on Vista machine. I've turned off real-time scanning and I still can't get windows to allow me to install - "potentially dangerous" file. Windows does not even allow me to override when I go to extract the files from zip.

    Download and install Boxee to your pc. Download Boxee Remote by supware.net from the market on your phone. Start boxee and find the Pandora app. Then use the boxee remote app on your phone to control pandora. The remote app works over wifi and it shows you whats playing and it will let you skip songs. That works for me.

    I know, bump from the dead but better than a new thread. Has any one found an app that will do the same thing but between android devices? Let me explain. We use the Xoom in my store to play pandora constenly and some times we cant get to it on time when a song comes on that we deem not work/customer approrite haveing a remote would be awsome.

    God I need to learn how to devlope.

    You can try this https://market.android.com/details?id=com.MarcelloAlbano.LazyDroidServer&feature=search_result

    if you have a computer that is on the same wifi network i believe it should work. May need root access though.

    Here’s what I’ve done:
    I setup remote desktop on my windows 7 home premium laptop.

    1. I downloaded and installed the remote desktop patcher, which enabled remote desktop connections on my laptop. http://www.beavermjr.info/Concurrent_RDP_Patcher.zip
    2. I opened port 3389 on my laptops firewall.
    3. I setup port forwarding on my router
    4. I downloaded 2x client on my droid. The only free remote desktop client in the droid marketplace.
    5. I connected to my laptop from the droid using the wan IP address my isp gave me. I used the credentials of my windows user account to login to the laptop remotely. Note that the windows account you use must have a password.
    6. I setup windows to automatically login so I don’t have to login every time I turn on my laptop.
      I now control my laptop from anywhere my phone has network access. Across the room or across the state I can do anything I want on my laptop.

      Google is your best friend when it comes to setting up remote desktop. I have not used any of the other remote desktop clients on the droid. If you try one and like it, please let me know.

    I can't get this patch to work? Is there a trick to the above? It does say that the service is listening on port 3389

    I am looking for a similar scenario. I would love to be able to control Netflix on the TV playing through my Acer 100 with my Bionic on the couch. Tag for me, bump for you
