And yet another smart use for your tizen operated phone has come to fruit: X-Remote.
X-remote was originally developed for the BADA operating system. It is a remote control application that connects with your PC via Bluetooth. It uses elements of the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack to control several PC-Applications as well as hardware functions via a smartphone, such as:
- Several types of keyboards
- Mouse/trackpad buttons and functions.
- Hibernate, standby / sleep, lock, log off, restart, shutdown, but also control your monitor and loudspeakers.
- Media players like Windows Media Center (WMC) or Windows Media Player (WMP ), Winamp, Cyberlink Power DVD and Zune.
- Business tools like PowerPoint and Acrobat Reader.
The Developer, Tamal Basak is expanding both the support and the exension of the elements that can be controlled
Installing is quite simple and straightforward: In order to use tour tizen smartphone as the X-Remote you have to install an application on your smartphones and one on the PC. Further requirements are like Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 and the dot net framework 3.1 runtime version (Which is available for free from Microsoft). And bluetooth of course!
