Gmote is an amazing app that allows you to control your computer with your phone. With Gmote, you can use your phone as a remote control to play music or videos from your computer either on the computer or on your phone or set up your phone to act like a mouse.
Setting up GMote was easy. To set up GMote, download the GMote software to your computer. Make sure your phone is on the same WIFI network as the computer is on. Connect to your computer either by name or IP address. Now you’re ready to play files on your computer with your phone.
I could see many uses for GMote. For instance if you’re in another room away from the computer and you wanted to watch a video clip of Megan Fox from your computer, you could watch it on your phone. Or if somebody was on the computer and you wanted to play some music, you could play it with your phone. You could also use it as a controller to play power point slides in a demonstration. I was really surprised how well GMote worked and how useful it could be.
