There have been quite a few apps over the years that let you control your BlackBerry from your PC. They tend to be pricey and that is exactly where Desktop Phone Remote differs since it only costs $1.99. They are coming off of their very successful Phone Remote app for the BlackBerry PlayBook and have now ported it to the desktop. You simply install their app on your phone and then fire up the Adobe AIR app on your PC or laptop to control your BlackBerry from your PC.
The simplicity is also nice allowing you to automatically connect on local connections when you are on the same Wi-Fi network as your phone. This is great for data entry and other tasks where you want a full screen and keyboard or simply don’t want to pick up your phone. You can also edit the image quality and take a screenshot remotely.
