Hello Everyone,

i've finish working on my application RemotifyMyDroid, and uploaded it to the market place toy can download:

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.yazan.remotifyMyDroid&feature=more_from_developer

it sends notifications to your PC, when you got event on your mobile,
best case when you are charging your mobile in a room, and setting in another..
however you can use it in different purposes ...

the phone and the PC should be on the same LAN,

in future i may upgrade it to work over the internet ...

it notifies for those events:
1- Incoming Call (shows the caller number to)
2- Outgoing Call (someone using your mobile to call a number)
3- Your mobile is fully charged (in case you were charging it)
4- Someone unplugged the power of the charger.
5- New Incoming SMS.

to download the PC server
http://www.yazandroid.com/
and go to RemotifyMyDroid (1st link) and it contains some screen shots to.

also have a look at my other FREE 2 applications there :)


your feedback is appreciated :)

Yazan.

Sounds great, but I think setting this up might be a tad harsh for general use (firewalls etc). I would suggest building an intermediary platform (web service) to communicate to. That way you can have a very easy setup. For instance, you can use the Google login service to identify yourself from the phone and the notification program and that's it then. No IP's or port numbers as most users don't know what that is anyway.

But for the techies, good start.

Cheers

Really nice idea!
Another suggestion : an honeycomb client

let us be notified about our phone when it's away and we're using our favorite tablet ;)

Timmmmmm I'm sorry to have to say this, but I think you may have wasted your time:

http://code.google.com/p/android-notifier/
its not a waste of time, and for sure i have learned couple of things while developing this app, its not a waste at all.

otherwise you will see a single app for each purpose ... on pc\mobile ...

one more thing .. why do you think there is Windows , Linux and Mac??
could not other parties just SAVE there time and NOT develop another OS!!!!

for now i am not planning to open source any of my work,
sorry :(

this was on the list next :)
with this to
I will use this when it's possible to use it via the web. Maybe a Chrome/FireFox/IE plugin would be cool?
still thinking which one will go first,

thanks all :)

Hey, didn't try it yet but I have some suggestions, in addition to a web service:

reply to sms / transfer calls to PC
low battery event
as an option, deliver every notification from notification bar (alarms, songs played, ebay auctions ending, FB msgs, etc.)

cheers :)

hey lastnikita, thx for suggestions,
i will be working on such updates,
but regarding the call forwarding to PC as far as i know you can't do it as the call is protected by the OS. it has limitations...

Mac version would be awesome .
hey Bomster,
there is a MAC version...
not tested yet, i don't have a MAC, please if you try and send us a feed back, that will be great:)
cheers

thanks,

Using bluetooth maybe ? PC as a handset (would have to be paired before) :)
I understand then distance range would come as a limit for many use cases, but could still be enjoyable instead of standing up to pick up the phone !

    Have you ever heard of...dare I say it...variation of ideas? Just because there is something similar out there, does not mean it is identical. Please do not spam dev's threads with others work.

    Thanks for answer but this sounds like a another language to me, don't understand a thing you just told me. :) Is this something you will look into or is it something i must do by myself? :)

    lol sorry, my bad
    no i meant you may try the following:
    --- first you must download the 1st option: Jar With Batch/Sh files

    then edit the .bat file named: remotifyMyDroid_xp.bat
    replace the line that looks like this:
    com.yazan.remotifyMyDroidServer.ui.RemotifyMyDroidJFrame

    use this line instead:
    com.yazan.remotifyMyDroidServer.ui.RemotifyMyDroidNonWinJFrame

    make sure no spaces in the line between the words, only dots .
    i don't know why it add spaces here in the post!!!

    save , close editor and try to run the _xp.bat file.

    good luck.
