Control Your PC from Windows Mobile
Have you ever been sitting around playing with your Shadow, listening to music when a song came on that you really wanted to change but just didn’t want to get up for? Ever missed a call because you were jamming out at volume 11 or even tried to answer a call and couldn’t silence the machine fast enough? Ever wished you could control a PowerPoint presentation, DVD video, or even your home from your phone? Salling Software Clicker makes that and more possible. Clicker works over WiFi and Bluetooth, but doesn’t need both. Amazingly, it will even control a non-wireless computer connected to a WiFi router. You can enable/disable features from the computer and share features from computer to computer over the network. When connecting from Windows Mobile you can specify if you want to connect over wifi or Bluetooth and choose which computer on your network you want to connect to.
You can directly control your system volume or mimic mouse actions including Left click/hold and Right Click/Hold.
Firing up Media Player and navigating through your albums is quite easy. You can view your playlists, sort by artist, repeat shuffle or even get a movie or video going all from your Shadow.
Powerpoint is just as easy to handle and potentially an even more valuable as it could make your next PowerPoint Presentation go that much smoother, landing you that contract or grade. The controls are straight forward and to the point. You can see on your Shadow’s screen what presentation you are opening and control the whole show from your Shadow.
You can set a countdown timer to keep your presentation on track.
One feature that I’ve greatly enjoyed and use frequently is Speaker’s Notes. When designing a PowerPoint presentation you can input notes near the bottom of the screen that only the Speaker can see. Salling Clicker sends these notes to your phone so you can use them as a reminder or for talking points without having to turn a page or lose your place on paper. It only looks like you took a brief look at the ‘remote.’
Additional options from the Menu key are practical and useful. Salling obviously has some presentation experience under their belts.
In addition to the items above you can get scripts from the Salling website to control MediaMonkey, WinAmp, PowerDVD, MediaPortal, WMP, BSPlayer, TVTool, WinDVD, Switch Sockets and the more advanced TellStick, which with the proper components you can control your whole house! Since it is scriptable, if you have the knowhow you can extend its functionality even deeper. Now that’s a lot of power!
To make it even more convenient, Clicker throws down some handsfree action as well. You can set it to pause the music when a call comes in or while you are away or simply mute the music. You even get a handy call notifier for incoming calls. It’s interesting to note that after setting up a secure partnership you can still connect to a computer when you are logged off or the screen is locked. Not a haX0r tool but real handy for getting the music playing while getting out of bed.
Settings to Satisfy
And if those aren’t enough options for you there’s plenty more under the settings button.
It’s not every day that I run into an application that solves more problems than I hoped for. Salling Clicker is one of those apps that actually opens your eyes to the possibilities. There’s a little something for everyone in here and at the very least you should give it the old college try. This is a useful tool for anyone that likes music, gives presentations or just wants more control in their life. As great as it is, I am not going to give it a perfect score. Reason being is that MOST products out there aren’t done evolving yet. I would like to see some voice control thrown into Salling Clicker, something that would take advantage of the Speech Recognition built into Windows. With that I don Salling Clicker four out of five Shadows! You can check out Salling Software Clicker here and the Mac version here. When selecting device select Windows Mobile 6 Standard instead of searching under T-Mobile.
