“Work from home” is one of the most common terms these days, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic started early last year. People are being habituated to accomplish their daily tasks online, mostly by using a computer.
If you do most of your work at home on your desktop computer, and you’re one of them who are keen to make life easier, Unified Remote could be the solution for sure!
Unified Remote is a very handy application that allows you to control your computer remotely from your smartphone as long as they are connected to the same WiFi network.
However, if you have the app installed on your phone and the desktop application installed on your computer, a quick scan from the mobile app will track down the computers connected to the network and allow you to choose.
Moreover, Unified Remote apps basically have a collection of remotes for executing different commands on your computers, for instance, there’s the ‘basic input’ remote that turns your phone screen to a touchpad that works like a mouse attached to your computer. Not last but the least, the file manager remote is handy if you want to play music from one corner of your room but are not willing to get up and walk five paces.
The free version of the application (available on Android/iOS) offers 5 different remotes, the basic input, file manager, keyboard, media, and power.
