Remotely Control Your Computer With RemoteDroid


A lot of people today use computers as Media Centres. Personally, I have a Raspberry Pi running XMBC in my bedroom and a ‘Nettop PC’ (basically a Netbook without a screen) in my living room running Ubuntu. I don’t really do much in the way of conventional computing on these devices as they are only really there as media centres so I don’t need a keyboard and mouse. However, I do need to be able to control the devices some how.

Enter RemoteDroid…

RemoteDroid is a fantastic app that works on Linux, Mac & Windows operating systems. There is a small app that you put on you’re device which is available from Google Play, you then need to download the small Java server app to your machine. Run them both and hey presto, your Android device is now a remote control with a mouse and keyboard!



More information and full instructions on how to use RemoteDroid can be found on their website. To install the app on Google Play either search for ‘RemoteDroid’ from within your Google Play Store or scan the QR code below from your device.
