There are a lot of remote apps in the Windows Phone Store and of course they are very powerfull and they distinguish by their set of features. But when it comes to the most important feature, the mouse, they are all the same. So what if I tell you that there is an app which let you control your PC with the sensors in your phone?
What I am talking about is the all new GyroRemote app. This app turns your phone into a fully functional Air Mouse including the three mouse buttons and a scroll wheel.
Now it could be over, but it isn’t. Beside the gyroscope input you get an optional touchpanel, media remote controls, energy controls and of course a keyboard. And now the best: It’s for free! The above features are all available in ‘GyroRemote – Free’ which is ad supported.
And it is getting even cooler with the paid version: The keyboard has enhanced buttons including the common command-keys, function-keys and arrows. The enhancer has also a stunning enhancement: Pressing the ALT+TAB combination does open the taskswitcher on your Phone and not on your PC. So you can switch your running applications easily from your couch.
The Media Remote controls also has an enhancement in the paid version. Are your also missing some feedback on the volume buttons in the other remote apps? If you buy GyroRemote you get a volumeslider including a Peak/Vu-Meter which displays your sound setting as it is in nearly realtime! And last but definitely not least there is also a System-Info page which shows your CPU, Memory, Battery and Network usage whith nicely drawn gauges and graphes. With this feature you have a small resource monitor right on your phone.
Note: You need the server application running on your PC. For the download link and more information about GyroRemote refer to http://gyroremote.montyfax.com/

Nothing is pefect espacially for indie developers. So I know there are some steps to go:
The language support for German and Spanish are ready and will find their way in the next update. There are also some issues with the auto update process on the server side. If you have problems with it please update manually.
