We’ve talked about apps that let you stream music from PC, Mac OS X to Android and vice-versa. How about an app that can:
- Stream Music from PC, OS X to Android
- Stream Movies from PC, OS X to Android.
- Remote control all media (Music, Movies) on Windows, OS X, Linux from Android phone/tablet.
Well there’s one app that does all that and more, and it is called Gmote.
Gmote is a free / donate app that is a media center hub for all your Entertainment needs. You can control your computer’s media player from your phone. Stream music to your phone, the app turns your phone into a remote control for your computer, allowing you to start and control movies and music at a distance.
You can sit back in your couch and do all that, without having to touch mouse or keyboard, wirelessly.
We’ve been using Gmote for a while now, and are pretty happy with the performance. App is compatible with 99.99% of android phones, tablets out there since it supports all versions since android 1.5. You can go through your desktop’s music library, play it on your Android device, stop/start/previous/skip songs and videos playing on your desktop, control Microsoft PowerPoint, launch websites and, finally, even use your device’s touchscreen as a touchpad or a keyboard!
The app has 4.5 star rating on Google Play, and is truly worthy of it.
