Control Anything on Your PC with Your Android Phone

Too lazy to get near your own laptop/PC! Well how about a remote control for your laptop or PC too. As your TV, Blu-Ray player, and DVR all come with remote controls, then why not a remote control for your PC. Fortunately, if you have an Android phone, you can control just about everything on your PC.

Getting Started: Download Unified Remote

The cornerstone of this guide is Unified Remote. The full version of the app (which is required for some of the functions we’ll go over) costs around just Rs 100, but for what it can pull off, the price should not be an issue here. At the moment, only Android is supported, though you can sign up for an iOS betahere. The server application only runs on Windows and will need to be installed on any PC you want to control.

To establish a connection, install the app on your phone, the server on your PC, and connect both to the same Wi-Fi network. The Android app can then scan your network for any active servers. Select the PC you want to control. That selection will stay as the default until you change it.

Control Apps with Pre-Made Remotes

Out of the box, both the free and the paid versions of Unified Remote offer a selection of pre-built custom remote controls. The basics are covered here like a virtual keyboard, mouse and system volume controls. However, a few others provide custom controls for certain apps and sites. Here are a few of the most common remotes and the functions they provide:

  • YouTube – Play, pause, next and last playlist track, and volume.
  • VLC – Play, pause, volume, next and last video, video scrubbing.
  • Spotify – Play, pause, next and last track, and volume.
  • Spotify Advanced (Paid) – Playlist control, search, volume, shuffle, and repeat.
  • Hulu Desktop & Web (Paid) – Volume/pause for web, navigation controls for Hulu Desktop.
  • Netflix (Paid) – Play, pause, back and forth scrubbing, fullscreen and volume.
  • Pandora (Paid) – Play, pause, volume, thumbs up and down.
  • XBMC (Paid) – Navigation control, play, pause, volume, media file navigation.

There are plenty others that offer some form of control for a variety of other apps including Boxee, Chrome, Firefox, iTunes, MediaMonkey, PowerPoint, and even Winamp (rest its soul). For most things you’ll need, these can already be a breath of fresh air—muting your HTPC over Wi-Fi feels like magic—but for the tinkerers, we can go deeper.

Create Custom Widgets

Control Anything on Your PC with Your Android Phone

In addition to the stock remotes, you can create custom widgets with compilations of your most commonly used actions. To begin setting it up, open up the widget selection menu on your phone and drag one to the home screen. You can choose from one of the preset configurations, but any of them will allow you to add or remove rows and columns of B.uttons as you see fit.

Each B.utton is highly configurable. You can choose from a variety of colors or symbols and all of that is up to your personal preferences. However, the fun part is in choosing the action each B.utton will take. While creating a widget, tap the B.utton you want to configure, then select “Change Action.” On the next screen, there’s a drop down labeled “Select Target.” There are three categories of targets you can choose from:

  • Remote: This is where you can choose any of the B.uttons associated with any of the premade remotes. You can create a widget that controls your system volume, pauses Netflix, skips tracks on Spotify, and thumbs up or down Pandora songs.
  • Device: These functions run actions on the device you’re using, which will probably only be useful for advanced users.
  • Server: If you have more than one PC connected to the network, you can use this action to assign a specific server to a B.utton.

Most of the action will happen under the Remote section. Every function that’s built into the regular remotes can be accessed here, which means you can use a single widget to create a super remote of all your most frequently used tasks.

So, let’s say we want to create a widget with system volume controls, pause and fullscreen B.uttons for Netflix, and thumbs-up/thumbs-down B.uttons for Pandora. To create this widget, follow these steps:

  1. Create a 3×3 widget on an empty home screen.
  2. In the layout section, long-press one B.utton in each of the two bottom rows. Your widget should now have one row with three B.uttons and two rows with two B.uttons.
  3. Tap the first B.utton in the first row and select “Change Action.
    1. Choose “Remote” under “Select Target.”
    2. Choose “Media” under “Select Remote.”
    3. Choose “Volume Down” under “Select Action.”
    4. Tap “OK.”
  4. Tap “Change icon” and “Change color” to give the B.utton a symbol and color of your choice.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each of the remaining B.uttons (from left-to-right), using the following Remote actions:
    1. Remote > Media > Volume Mute.
    2. Remote > Media > Volume Up
    3. Remote > Netflix > Play Pause
    4. Remote > Netflix > Fullscreen
    5. Remote > Pandora > Thumbs Up
    6. Remote > Pandora > Thumbs Down
  6. Once you’ve finished configuring each B.utton, tap the checkmark in the action bar. (Optionally, you can deselect “Show ‘edit’ B.utton in widget layout if you don’t want to change the widget later and prefer to give yourself some more space.)

When you’re finished, the widget should look like the one above.

Pressing B.uttons isn’t everything. There are a number of features that are a bit beyond the scope of this article, but we can point you in the right direction.In most cases, Unified Remote has dedicated functions that can do most of what you need. However, for the bits in between, you can still use the Basic Input remote to use regular mouse and keyboard controls.
