Purpose:
The purpose of these applications is to give the user the ability to remotely control the state of their computer at any time. That is to say allowing the user to "shutdown,restart,hibernate" their pc whenever they choose to; once their devices are connected on the same network (wifi).

Setup
-Extract file from zip and run application on computer(Droid Remote Console v2.5.2) and hit remote Access
-open app on smartphone
-go to Settings and place the ip address given on the pc console and save changes and return to prev screen
- choose whatever time you want and hit the desired command


*Console only works for Windows devices. Will expand if there is a desire for it
* consist of two applications one on the pc and the other installed on your phone
* the application on the computer can act independently without the need of the secondary application (second app is required if you are away or not next to it at the time)
* Must abort prev command before a new command is given

This is the first app that works for me, the other shutdown apps always crash...
Simple and effective!
Thx alot!

Is there a way to hide the console on pc? I have it in startup folder and I don't like it popping up every time I start my pc.
Can it be minimised to system tray?

I will work on it and see what I can do on that, but it will take some time as I got a job for 5 months so it is slowing down my development but will work on this feature. There are many more features and updates for this app in the pipeline in the near future so I am glad that you like it

Update:

I am having some problems with my google developer's account meaning that I am unable to add any new apps but I am only able to update my current app. Currently, I am trying my best to solve this issue before updating this application.
