Free All In One Remote Controls Your PC from Your BlackBerry PlayBook

All In One Remote2  All In One Remote

I was recently looking for a way to control my home theater PC from my PlayBook using it as a remote. I was using Splashtop but that was not ideal. Today Jason (Update: seems like this is coming via RIMarkable) pointed out All In One Remote to me which was ported to the PlayBook from Android awhile back by the developer Hisham Hassan Bak. It has an awesome feature set and works with Windows, Mac, and even Linux. It even has controls for common applications including the key VLC player.

Here is the feature set:

  • Control any app ever by creating your own custom remotes.
  • Wifi and Bluetooth supported.
  • Linux, Windows and Mac supported.
  • Remote mouse control.
  • Remote keyboard control.
  • Remote File Manager.
  • Powepoint control.
  • Control common applications (Windows media player, Media player classic, Winamp, VLC, Banshee, Totem )
  • Game controller with 8 buttons, 8 directions and multi-touch support.
  • Game Pad designer: Add any number of buttons – delete buttons – resize buttons – change buttons position – change keyboard mapping.
  • Multiplayer support: play with your friends with different mobile phones as game pads.
  • Tablet support: because you can resize and re position buttons anywhere on your screen.
  • Languages supported: (English, Arabic). More languages will be added.

You need to pick up All In One Remote from App World and also install the server component on the PC you wish to control. Let us know how it works for you!

  1. This works very well! love it

  2. Crashes when I try to use media player.
    Also it lacks a Windows Media Center controls which is available with almost all other remote apps. If you just want to use it as mouse/keyboard it works OK, mouse lags at odd instances, and you cannot really guess when it will lag, or what causes the lag, maybe network? I really don’t know.
    If the developer can make an ACTUAL playbook/bb app, not just sideload android app, and if he adds Windows Media Center controls, it would be definitely worth few bucks as paid version.

    I am trying to figure out how to create custom remotes now.
    Please fix the lag, and please make a proper PB app.

  3. He was kind enough to reply in another platform, he intends to update the PB version after BB10 is released.

  4. Thank you very much for writing about my app.

    I am sorry if you faced some issues with playbook version.

    I was focussing on BB10. I will update playbook version after BB10 version

    check bb10 version and you will find it totally different:

    • Thanks for popping in for an update, this is awesome and I am looking forward to getting BB10 and will definitely try your app. Nothing, and I repeat, nothing paid or free on Android platform does all the things that a normal remote can do, so hopefully you can consider adding a IR blaster option to the controls, namely compatibility with USB IR blaster so we can actually control our TV as well as our PC. :)

  5. Thank you Huseyin. Supporting TV is not simple but I hope that future versions of AIO Remote will support TV
