Today I want to present my new app, I'm currently working on: Remote.

What it does:

Remote allows you to access and control your computer from anywhere.
It comes with a server-application for your PC.
You can scroll through all your files, start them and you are also able to close/maximize and start applications on your computer from your phone.
Depending on which application is in foreground, user-defined key-combinations,commands and folders are displayed.
So for example, when vlc is active, your media-folder and key-combinations to Pause/Play and Fullscreen are displayed.

Later versions will feature a option to transfer files to your phone.

Remote isn't finished yet, I'm currently working on the performance and key-combinations.
The design also isn't finished yet, but the app is intended to feel like an official app.
When finished, Remote will be available for free!

Please give some input and critics or ideas for features

04.04.2011: Added Fileextensions (see "fileex.png") and DirectoryContentCounter (see "files.png")
09.04.2011: Added Favorites and also fixed the performance problem caused by contextmenues (see "favorites.png")

UPDATE: The App has been published! (Long time ago but it seems that newswriters only read the first post )

looks very interesting. will try this out when available. definitely looking forward to implementation of file transfer. would be cool do download word docs, pdfs or excel files while on the road or at work, without going through windows live mesh.

Well I have to disappoint you, because, to my knowledge, it isn't even possible to make screenshot from inside your app. Also it would have to run in the background or else you only could move inside this app, which would be pointless.
So no

Good performance is one of my main-objectives, so you won't be disappointed.

Maybe in later versions.. though I think about the ability to actually see the selected window on your screen and that you actually can make mouse input by just tapping on that image. Well as I said: maybe in later versions
