Swift Remote
Connect, Transfer Files, Control your Windows, Create Custom Commands and much more!
10,000+ Downloads!
My name is Sina Nourian. I'm a new developer and this is my first application on Google Play.
Since I don't have access to Google Play Developer Console (Not available in my country), My dear cousin @minooch published it for me.

Swift Remote is an application for controlling your desktop computer.
Send and receive files remotely, control your windows such as power controls, volume controls, set a shutdown timer, capture a screenshot and send it to your phone remotely, control your Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic remotely, control mouse, etc...
This program uses NirCmd tool from NirSoft

This application needs Swift Remote desktop application to work. Please download desktop application from here:
http://nourian.info/swiftremote.html
(You need Java Runtime version 8 update 40 or higher to run this application. please update your Java Runtime to the latest version)

If you want to write your own custom commands, you can check NirCmd's manual:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html

Features:
  • Connect multiple phones to desktop application
  • Auto Server Discovery. No need to manually add you host IP and port!
  • Transfer Files between desktop and phone
  • Control your Windows from your mobile. Power Controls, Shutdown Timer, Volume and Brightness Controls, Take a Screenshot, ...
  • Control Windows Media Player (WMP) and Media Player Classic (MPC) with your phone remotely!
  • Control your mouse cursor with your mobile's touch screen! You can change mouse sensivity from settings
  • Write your own Custom Commands and save them in application! You can do almost anything remotely with the help of NirCmd! Check NirCmd's manual
  • Send message from phone to desktop and vice versa and copy them to clipboard
  • More features coming soon...

v1.0.0 (1/4/2015):
Initial Release

FAQ:
Q: I can't connect!
A: UPDATE: In version 1.2.0 I improved finding local IP address. So even if you use a vpn, you should get the valid and correct local IP address. Also, new version has Auto Server Discovery feature. When you are in Connection Status page, wait a little and you will see your host will be added to the list automatically! If you still have problems and app cannot find your host automatically, you can try adding your host manually. Make sure to use a valid local IP address. You can find your local IP address form Swift Remote desktop application, and also from Network and Sharing Center in Windows

Q: Wake-on-Lan is not working!
A: for Wake-on-Lan, you have 2 options. use a MAC Address or choose from list of your hosts. If you want to choose from hosts you have to connect to that host at least one time. So android app can get your MAC address and store it in database. Remember, if you use Wifi on your computer, android application gets and stores MAC Address of your Wifi interface. So for making wOL to work, connect your computer to LAN (because WOL will not work on Wifi) and then connect android app to desktop. now it stores your LAN interface MAC address.
And for enabling WOL on your PC, if you want to turn on your computer when it is powered off, you should enable WOL in your BIOS.
and if you want to wake up your computer from sleep or hibernate, you should turn on WOL on windows. There are plenty of tutorials and helps for enabling this feature on internet. google it

It's needs a network. both computer and android must be in the same network.
but you can also use it on servers with valid IP and connect and control it.
it needs wifi if you are using in a local network or want to connect to a server with valid IP.
and you can use cellular connection just for connecting to a server in another network which has a valid IP
If you want to use Wake-on-Lan to wake up your computer, it only needs a wifi. because Wake-on-Lan only works in a local network.
So you should use it with Wifi.
also, for Wake-on-Lan, you should turn on magic packet in BIOS (if you want to turn on your computer when it's turned off)
and enable magic packet on windows if you want to turn on your computer from sleep or hibernate
I wrote FAQ in second post and explained it there
