Default Using my Streak as a mousepad for my PC! - 08-25-2010, 10:45 PM

Just downloaded "Desktop Remote Free" and successfully used my Streak as a remote for my laptop over wi-fi.

You can download the windows software here: Android Desktop Remote - Download

And there's a QR code for the android client too.

The app isn't quite polished but its a look of things to come, you could potentially use your Streak as a media centre remote which would be awesome!

Advanced keyboards like swype don't work properly (I guess as autofilling != the typing a PC expects). I was able to tap-to-click which I was kinda impressed with. A full multi-touch version with gestures and all sorts would be amazing

Please do not send me support requests via PM.

I've used a similar app, gmote I think (haven't reinstalled since 2.1update), it worked pretty well, no lag as I had expected. Great for controlling music while away from the computer, or for playing video from across the room.

This sort of thing has great potential for the future.
