Although currently in beta this is one great app! I can 100% remotely control my phone. The phones display is transmitted to my computer screen and I can use my mouse and keyboard to interact with the phone in real time. Best part; it’s free!
We have mentioned other apps that allow you to control your phone but these apps just let you control things like pictures and text messages. With this new app you can completely remote control your rooted Android phone over a VNC connection.
This great app is called droid VNC server BETA and is available as a free download in the Android Market. In addition to the Android app you will need to install some type of VNC client onto your desktop computer. I personally use UltraVNC which is a free download.
Just download the app and launch your VNC client on your computer. Enter in the phone’s IP detauls and you will be on your way to controlling your phone over a VNC connection!
Update: It looks like you can also just go to a url in your browser and control your phone through a java program. No more need for a VNC client to be installed on your computer!
