What is a good phone app to control a PC?

Recommended Posts

I have tried a few in the past but they were never that great

I just need to one to play videos or click on internet links from the couch 

does anyone have a free one they like or a paid one?

 

has anyone tried the google chrome remote or the microsoft one?

Chrome Desktop Remote is mostly a good option for screen sharing where there is a need for the host and the remote user to interact.  It is a fairly simple to implement.

I use Unified Remote most of the time with occasional Chrome Remote Desktop. Unified Remote is very useful because it shows you controls depending on the application that you have running on your computer. It requires either a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection to your computer to work.

Splashtop Touchpad or Gesture Touchpad for Win8 will turn your phone into a touchpad. You do need to have Splashtop streamer installed on your PC, but it works just as fast as a regular touchpad on a laptop.

If you're talking about remote control from out of the room: Teamviewer

 

if you just want it as a wireless mouse/keyboard: ASUS Remote Link
