Add this app to your lists
The one Remote Control for your Windows/OSX/Linux/Kodi system.

The major part of the app is the Linux remote control. It lets you control your mouse via single and multi touch, control the sound volume, send keyboard keys, list/manage/download/upload files to the system filesystem, write custom commands, use a terminal, execute tasks in the future, control media and do live monitoring of the system. You can export any remote control profile as a json file, share it with friends/colleagues or import it to another app instance. For the Linux remote control no third party software is required except an SSH server which is most likely available via your package manager. Login via user and password or via SSH key.

Live Monitoring
The live monitoring shows information about the current CPU usage, used and max ram, network interface information, Bluetooth Mac address and connection name, left battery life in percentage, used and max swap, disk partitions and general information about the system architecture. You can also customize the monitoring request commands and display any kind of information you want.

Wake on Lan
Wake up a system via network with a so called "Magic Packet". You will find instructions on how to enable the wol feature inside the app.

The app has 3 types of widgets for your home screen: one to send commands, another one to show live monitor information and one to wake up systems.

Additional features
Browse through ~2.500 Linux commands and man pages. It also provides you with a bunch of useful Linux "one-line-scripts".
You can also live monitor your Android device.

Browse your movie library and control the sound volume.

Login via scanning the QR code of the Server App(http://schubert-simon.de/remotecontrolserver/RemoteControlServer.zip).

Example commands
You can do basic actions like shutdown/reboot the system, navigate the system, play text to speech and control media. But also can take a screenshot of screen/webcam and send it to the phone.

    Meh, could be better. Lacks rhythmbox or banshee directly, and volume controls.

    The developer has stuck to the KISS philosophy and has produced a rock solid, user friendly app that does exactly as it claims and nothing else. Some people have mentioned problems under Lollipop but stick with it as I'm sure this us temporary and the developer will soon have those "undocumented features" tidied up soon.

    Other than that the app is actually well worth using.
