We're a little company that has been working on what we think is a pretty cool idea and we're looking for some feedback from your community.
We've written a bit of software which once installed on your computer, allows you to control applications on your PC / Mac with your phone or tablet. As you interact with the computer the interface on your phone changes automatically to provide you controls for the software you are using or the website you are viewing.
We currently have remotes for XBMC, Windows Media Center, Media Portal, Plex, Photoshop, iTunes, VLC and a boat load of websites including Netflix, Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook and TED.
We call it Apptui and you can download it here:http://beta.apptui.com
We would really appreciate people trying it out and giving us some feedback. The software isn't perfect but we're excited to hear what you guys think.
How it works:
Download and install Apptui
Launch Apptui (find and click on the A that has been added to your task bar / menu bar and select Pair a Device)
Connect your phone or tablet to your computer by browsing to apptui.com, in your phone's browser, and entering in the screen code which appears in the Apptui window that appeared on your computer.
Launch your favourite media centre software and your phone will turn into a remote for that piece of software. As you switch between applications the remote changes right along with you.
