How to control your PC with your Android phone

PC World - Admit it: You once owned a crazy multifunction remote. It had a black-and-white touchscreen and was supposed to let you control every entertainment device in your house from the comfort of your couch. That was the promise, at least. All it really did was force everything into the wrong aspect ratio and switch the clock on your microwave to Greenwich mean time. (Android, PC hardware, Phones)

Such software has been around for a long time. I remember doing this on a 2nd gen iPod Touch. It works fine but don't expect to do complex tasks or play video games over your phone as there can be a bit of latency.

What I'm seeing for the first time is the Wake-on-LAN commands. Haven't heard of this from any previous guide on setting up a VNC server. This would be incredibly useful if you want to use your PC when away from home by leaving it in an extremely low power state until you need to use the PC. Need to give this a try!

Even if Sony may or may not come up with idea first. I'll always think of it as remote play.

just my 2 cents
