I'd ideally like to have the phone always listening for connections to allow me to control it. I'm aware of the security concerns with this. Does anyone know of any solution? As always, free is preferable to paid, though I'm willing to pay a little for a good solution.
My friend's Samsung phone has a feature where he can control the phone in his pocket from his computer. I was curious if anything has been developed for Android/the Nexus 5. I know TeamViewer has the capability on rooted phones, but I can't seem to get it to work (and it would require that I pull the phone out to manually start it).
