What is PC Quick Commands?

PC Quick Commands is a good looking, simple and open source app to send important commands to your PC. I know a handful of apps exist that offer similar functionality but I just wanted to write my own and I will be adding more functionality to it soon, while keeping it simple and free of bloat/ads and unwanted features/commands, like other apps.

Screenshots



Features
  • Android Wear support (beta)
  • Open source and free
  • No ads
  • Lightweight in terms of size and resource consumption
  • Good design
  • Supports Android 4.0 and above

Commands supported as of now:
  • Restart
  • Shutdown
  • Log off
  • Suspend/Sleep
  • Hibernate
  • Run command (like, ping www.google.com)
  • Run application command (like, chrome.exe)
  • Custom command

More commands will be supported soon!

Operating system support:

- Windows (XP/Vista/7/8/8.1)
- Mac & Linux (SOON!)

This is a BETA app so things are not guaranteed to function properly every time. I am working hard to add more commands and iron out the bugs.

Download (Play Store)

Download link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...cquickcommands

IMPORTANT NOTE: Requires client app to be installed on your PC/Laptop to function properly: You can download it from here: http://goo.gl/5YnnLm. Please make sure .NET Framework 2 is installed else the client app won't work!

Have you ever heard of Salling Clicker? Was an app back in the day before smart phones that worked via Bluetooth to control your Mac from your phone as well as some other neat little scripts. I would love to see something like that for android and it appears you're already part of the way there!

I see.. but I don't want to make a "Control your PC" alternative. The aim is to enable the user to send important commands remotely, using an available internet connection. That is why I have kept the list simple. I don't want to overwhelm the user with crapload of commands and I want to keep things simple and straightforward. If the user wants to control his entire keyboard or mouse or other stuff then there are apps available for that. There's an option in my app to send a custom command (working on it) using which you can send anything, from mouse location coordinates to media control commands like play and pause. It'll be live in next version

Gotcha, and makes sense. I just miss the text notifications, and mainly music controls, which involved fading out and pausing music when a phone call came in, and restarting and fading in when the call ended.

Might consider adding an option to enable that feature via an IAP after app reaches stable state

Maybe you could use some ideas from Unified Remote? It has "touchpad", keyboard, and basic multimedia functions as well.

Would it be possible to add an option to turn the computer on? I use PcAutoWaker to do this right now but it doesnt allow me to turn it off. It would be cool to have one app do it all.

Nice job. Multimedia commands (vol+ vol- play stop next) would be great.
