Remote Launcher Server

Remote Launcher is an easy-to-use tool that enables you to launch applications remotely on your PC via your Android device. It consists of an Android application (proprietary) and a small server program (GPLv2) for your PC. You can configure Remote Launcher to start any application on your PC with a single click on your Android device. For example, it can start your mediacenter, shutdown or restart the computer, or run a custom script. It has been tested on Ubuntu and Windows 7.
