I'll stop going on about Android soon, but I just found an app that is awesome. Gmote allows you to control your PC's media collection and various media players through your phone. Also functions as a remote mouse and keyboard. A simple remote control app. Nice enough, but nothing new.

This one, however, allows you to stream the files to your phone over Wi-Fi or 3G. Acess your PC's music library from anywhere (assuming my PC's on). And you can access any file and edit it on your PC. So I can now launch, open projects in, and control Cubase remotely. This means I can be sat far away from the PC, even in another room, whilst tracking, but still have control. Very nice.

As soon as it gives you a desktop view (apparently coming soon), it'll almost completely replace the need to use my PC!

Then change how it looks. Mine looks like this.


I like that is counts how many messages you've sent in a month (as I only have 90 free sms each month) and that it counts how many characters you have left in a message so I don't type 2 characters more than the limit so it sends 2 sms instead of 1. And just how heavily customizable it is :)
