Coolsmartphone Recommended App – Gmote

I have read no end of “top ten android apps” type articles and they are all very similar. Google maps is usually their top app, followed by some sort of task killer! These articles are great for beginners though, they show new users what is possible with their new phone. But where do users who have installed the whole top ten and still want more? Over the next few weeks I aim to come up with some app and game recommendations for things that are a bit more obscure and niche market.

The first of which is Gmote


Gmote is a remote control app. It works over wifi and it lets you control your computer with your phone. It is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, which is refreshing to see all platforms covered. You install one part on your computer and the other part on your phone. Once both parts have had a chat over wifi, you can use your phones screen as a mouse pointer and you can also use the on screen keyboard to type as well. It does not end there though, you can play back music or film from other computers or from network attached storage. This can be streamed to your device or play it back on another computer. This is the easiest ways of playing music or film from network attached storage I have come across. It also has some beta functions that don’t quite work, such as a web element which allows you to search youtube on the devcie and then play it back on the computer. This does not work. I guess future updates will address this. All in all it is a great app that makes media playback on a tv a lot easier. It also is a very easy way of browsing media stored on your network, other apps tend to get way too complicated and usually do not work. I aim to get a couple of apps out each week. If you can think of any we might be interested please let us know.

Sony Ericsson PLAY - Did it first appear 14 years ago?
  • Always have trouble playing the files on my handset but it is perfect for streaming to the TV and using it as a wireless mouse.

    The only draw back of the Gmote is its lack of mobility. Unfortunately, I am unable to leave my home streaming Gmote, and find myself stuck within my WIFI network. I have since started using Remote Access from my employer, DISH Network. I can now remotely stream live TV, on demand content, and DVR recordings to my Android. I haven’t found a better app yet!
