Gmote 2.0 let's you use your Android as a remote control for your computer

Gmote 2.0 is one of those apps that add a new functionality to your Android. This time it turns into a remote control that will allow you to control music and video players at a distance (over 3G/4G/WiFi). Probably this will be its main purpose, but it isn't the only thing you can perform with it. You can control also PowerPoint or any other image slide shows, navigate and launch websites from phone, or use the touchpad/keyboard of your phone in your computer. That means comprehensive input control from your phone to your computer. It has to be said that it supports PC and Linux. Easy, reliable and 100% worthy.

This is the free version. If you want to donate the developers get the "donate version" ($2.99). But it doesn't contains any extra features.

Gmote 2.0 has been developed by Marc Stogaitis & Mimi Sun, an emerging developer who has launched few apps on the market, but who's reaching quite success thanks to this one, Gmote 2.0.

    I love how I can be uber lazy with this app. I can do lazy things with a single finger... not typing this of course. I have a large monitor so it's good that the app helps me to use my laptop from far so I don't have to ruin my eyes. It would be great if the keyboard and mouse buttons are placed at the bottom. I drag my windows around a lot so it helps to have faster access to those buttons. Also

    Works almost perfectly! Within minutes I had all but replaced my old media centre keyboard. Would be 100% if it had an esc button

    Would be great if a play list feature is included.
