How to use your mobile as remote control for PC

Remotely control your mouse, keyboard, PowerPoint, VLC player, Browser and much more. All you need is atleast a phone with Bluetooth and Java support and a PC/Laptop with bluetooth capabilities. If you don’t have a Bluetooth on your PC, just buy a BT Dongle which will cost you around Rs. 80.

There are lots of mobile apps for converting your phone into a remote, some works on bluetooth technology and some works on internet technology i.e., you can control your PC from anywhere in the world. But in most cases we prefer a local remote to control media players or just to do a PPT.

For Sony Ericsson phones, its very simple, just pair your phone and PC and go to applications and start using your phone as a remote. But you will not be able to get some features like Keyboard

For phones like Nokia, Samsung and other Java capable handsets, all you want to do is to install a Java app on your mobile and install a server side app on your PC.
