In the world of remote access software PhoneMyPc is a relative newcomer – made by SoftwareForMe Inc. was released in the android market on the 3rd March. It already has 50, 000 downloads and 4.5 star rating in the google app store and here is my opinion too why.
Rocking in at £9.74 this is one of the higher priced remote access apps. With apps like Teamviewer and Win-remote being free this is an expensive version of this concept. Or is it?
Win – remote is good at what it does – You can access everything on your laptop/PC via a phone with files being shown on your phone screen. BUT you don’t see what you see on your pc/laptop screen. Everything is controlled via a navigation and a keypad which is fine but you have to be looking at the screen which is completely unhelpful if you want to wire in to a home pc to, for arguments sake monitor what the kids are doing online or to access files which are saved at home. This app is only useful if you are looking at your laptop screen.
The feature I like most about PhoneMyPC other than the fact it is very clear and easy to use, is that you see the screen on your mobile. So as stated before if you have a reason to remote in whilst out you can and can see exactly what is on screen in the palm of your hand!
Like most remote access apps this one is a little bit slow – things don’t happen as quick on the phone as they do on the laptop, but this is the only downside I can find to this application so far.
For me this app is so great because it just works! It does what it says in the description and I feel it does it well! Definitely worth the money especially as we all like things to work exactly as they should. :)
Also great for freaking people out by playing music in your room when your not home :P
