QRemoteControl 2.4.1
Control your desktop from an Android device

QRemoteControl is a customisable tool which can control your desktop (PC, Mac or Linux) from a mobile device - Android, BlackBerry, MeeGo, Symbian or Sailfish - via wifi.

Setup can be very straightforward. We launched the server component on our Windows 8.1 PC (it's portable, so no installation required), then installed and ran the Android client. Clicking "Search servers" on our phone ran a quick network scan, listing the PC's IP address, and after clicking this we were connected.

The standard control layout is uninspired, but experiment for a moment and you'll soon figure out how everything works. There are cursor keys, an "Enter", backspace and a "Close" button. You can zoom in and out, simulate Alt+Tab, and control media playback in various ways (Play/ Pause, Back, Next, Volume up/ down, Mute, more).

If this isn't enough, your remote control can also act as a touchpad, and a keyboard.

A "User Commands" section provides custom buttons which can be tweaked to launch whatever program or shortcuts you need.

Perhaps best of all, there are plenty of configuration options. This starts at a simple user level, with the ability to set a custom icon for each User Command button, or apply some basic skin tweaks. You're also able to replace the standard buttons with your preferred keyboard shortcuts. And low-level options covering network communications, cursor acceleration, scroll speeds and more are very helpful in making sure the program works just as you'd like.

Please note, the downloads we're linking to here are for the Windows, Mac and Linux servers, and the Android client. For the other mobile clients, please go here.


QRemoteControl didn't always work as we expected. The touchpad would occasionally stop responding until we took our finger off the screen, while for some reason the Alt+Tab button didn't work at all. The program is also easy to set up, simple to use and very configurable, though: if you need a PC remote control then it's definitely worth a try.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
