I'm starting to get bored and I've hear about people using their phones to controls their car and various other things. So I'm looking for ways that my Nexus 5 can interact with my computer and I'm finding it hard to come across apps and coming up with ideas on what to do.

So far I have:

- retune (connects to iTunes)
- gmote (file browsing to play movies on your computer)

I have a dual monitor setup and sometimes I'm laying in bed, I wouldn't mind being able to see what those two screens are showing.

For example I might have gotten a steam/xfire message, but I don't want to get up. I'd love for a way to see them in my phone.

Or maybe I'm watching a video on YouTube on my phone, I have friends over and I'd like to show them all, so I could just swipe it to my one if my dual monitors, as I'd my phone was an extended display, or vice versa

Other than that, could you guys/girls recommend me other things that you might do that I haven't mentioned?

Maybe if this thread kicks off if there isn't already one similar, I could edit the OP with a list of software/apps and what they do so other members could find stuff out, and get a sticky.

Okay, go!!

check out BBQ screen in the paid apps forum for the "i have friends over and id like to show them all, so i could just swipe it to my one if my dual monitors" part. also you can use your phone as a remote keyboard\mouse by pairing it via bluetooth...
