Amazing as it sounds, Remote Control for Windows Mobile allows you to control your computer using your phone.
Despite the fact that I'm always losing it, my TV remote controller is one of my favorite objects in the whole house. I do enough walking when I'm outside so when I'm at home I like to use my legs as little as possible.
Unfortunately all the music I listen to at home is piped through my PC using Winamp. This means I often have to get up off the sofa when I want to skip a track or play a different album.
This terrible state of affairs has now been remedied thanks to Remote Control for Windows Mobile.
