    "Solves problems"

    January 16, 2013  |   By swupdt

    Version: Remote Control for PC 1.0

    Pros

    - Doesn't require installing other stuff on phone (like Python)
    - Emulates keys, not proprietary media player commands, so you can always control SOMETHING no matter what program you're in
    - Quick setup
    - Places very small load on memory (both on Phone and on PC)

    Cons

    - Windows only
    - Unattractive graphics (but you can hack that)

    Summary

    The actual reason I wrote this review is because I want to share a lifesaving trick with the world:

    Buy a pack of UHU Patafix glue pads - they're like putty and are great for temporarily sticking up posters on walls. Very easy to remove, it adheres to itself a lot more that it does to anything else.

    Pull out your Nokia Symbian phone with a touchscreen and start up the Remote Control for PC app

    Place two small clumps of Patafix on the touchscreen, where Next and Previous buttons are.

    You can now press Next and Previous blindly, by feeling up the buttons like a normal remote. Works real smooth too, a light tap and it advances your Keynote. No more looking at the screen every time and hitting the wrong buttons.

    P.S. In the future ... Tactus Technology

    Updated on Jan 16, 2013

    Forgot: To hack the graphics look up a Symbian S60 UI pack (Photoshop or Illustrator file), find SISContents and MBMWizard for Windows.

    Open up the Remote Control for PC .sis file with SISContents, look for graphics.mbm, extract it.

    Open graphics.mbm with MBMWizard and you'll see the buttons in all their states there, as .BMP files. (Watch out there are 2 graphics.mbm, difference is one is higher resolution and the other is low res)

    Extract the .BMP files which make up the UI of this great app, and modify each BMP with your own buttons (preferably something tasteful like the original Symbian look!)

    Import back to MBMWizard, save your replacement graphics.mbm, then import that back into SIScontents and save the .sis file again: Remote Control for PC NEW LOOK.sis

    :)

    "very good application"

    Version: Remote Control for PC 1.0

    Pros

    so far it is the best remote control mobile apps for Nokia devices i found

    Cons

    it works only for Windows PC, not for linux.

    Summary

    its user friendly and very useful tool if you need to make PowerPoint presentations or maybe if you use your PC in combination with projector to watch the movies, youtube videoclips or listen the music from PC.
