There are four basic functions:

  • Use it as a wireless mouse and keyboard

  • Or you can interact live with you PC

There are also three advanced functions that include controlling applications, executing actions, and control access to other windows.

  1. Given that LogMeIn are rumoured to be working on an Android client, I can't see why anyone would pay $9.99 when they can use LogMeIn Free and have access to their PC from any browser.

  2. -OK

    First of all, to anyone who has any doubt about how this app works.. i bought it when there was a special of $4.99 and lemme say i wouldnt think twice before spending 10 bucks on this app.. MOST AMAZING APP i have on the droid, or at least one i use pretty damn frequently..

    the thing is just sweet, sitting at work watching my roomate play modern warfare 2 lol.. if ur not on wifi the feed is a little slow for videos or fast motions but what do you expect from 3G..

    Who needs adobe flash on mobile when you can just go on ur computer and look at what you need lol.. if you dont have it, at least buy it to test it you wont be disappointed.

    1 more thing, if you do have it, a little hidden feature took me a couple weeks to find lol, put the search button to get a mouse cursor to display when your in the "interact with pc mode" much easier to navigate when using the cursor.


  3. Meh.

    It's called VNC and it's free technology.

    If you run OS X, then you just have to turn it on. If you run windows, download the UltraVNC server or the like.

    Get AndroidVNC from the market and you're done. Total cost $0.

  4. @Blaine: Sure, VNC can do this, but not as simply as you stated when dealing with corporate firewalls etc that don't allow you to connect to your work PC without being on a VPN tunnel. If this program works like others I've used on my Blackberry, they get around that by actually having the client PC connect to your phone by creating the connection as an outbound connection thus bypassing firewalls. There's more to these programs than just a simple vnc server/client that you can replicate easily for free.
