If you have ever been out and about, and wished that you could launch an application whilst you were not at your PC, then Remote Launcher is for you. One of the best examples (for me personally) that I can think of is when you leave the house for the day, then realise you forgot to turn on your torrent application before leaving.
If this sounds familiar, then you should definitely check out Remote Launcher. In short, after a painless initial set up (which involves installing a lightweight server on your PC), you are easily able to add applications to a "Launchers" list. If you have any trouble with these steps, don't worry - the developer has created some great guidance material on their website to help even the most computer illiterate person get things up and running!
Once you have your Launcher list established, it is then just a case of opening the Android application and selecting the program you want to start. Other great features include the ability to boot your computer remotely (using Wake on Lan), as well as a great widget to put certain applications on the tip of your fingers at all time.
The uses for Remote Launcher are only restricted by your creativity! By using Remote Launcher with other great Android apps such as Tasker or Llama, you will be able to have your computer resting all day (turned off) whilst you are away, but boot up as you walk in the front door!
All in all, Remote Launcher is an excellent app - worthy of your download!
In the words of the developer:
Start programs remotely on your computer with one click on your Android device
There is also a lite version, available here.
