If you have an Android smartphone like me, and work around computers all day, you’ll understand the importance of having a setup where you can access all functions of your phone via your computer. Surely I won’t need to explain the benefits of being able to do things like create and manage text messages on your desktop, use your phone as a webcam, file sync, and ftp management all from the comfort of your PC, any PC. Remote Web Desktop allows you to manage and control several aspects of your Android phone via your web browser. That means that you don’t have to worry about hooking up your USB, or even installing any software on your PC.
The app was created by Smartdog Studio, makers of other popular apps like Quick Torch, Smart Clipboard, Smart Vibrator, and more. Remote Web Desktop has become a staple for me as it has made my productivity skyrocket. It is extremely easy to use, and like previously stated, there is no convoluted setup or bulky software to install and since it is web based you can simultaneously switch from one computer to the other.
Remote Web Desktop comes in two flavors, a free version which is ad-supported, and the full version which of course has no advertisements and includes Pro features like using a secure network. Read on to view the developer’s demo and full list of features.
