Windows Mobile 6 is my mobile OS of choice (sorry Blackberry fans, I really hate the closed-source nature of the Blackberry!). I keep all of my contacts synced to it via ActiveSync and basically keep my life organized with it. Via Twitter I heard someone talking about My Mobiler… so I had to check it out, and I was pleasantly surprised!
So why would one want to control their Windows Mobile phone from their desktop?
- Too lazy pick up your phone to make a call
- Writing long sentences on that tiny keypad is annoying
- The need to take screenshots for posts such as these
- Just want to impress the ladies… ok maybe the last one is a stretch.
The list goes on and on. My Mobiler does all this and more for you. It is an application that installs on your Windows Mobile phone and lets you control it from your desktop. The mouse works like a touch on the touchscreen and the keyboard works as an input device. It works via ActiveSync or by IP address to give you multiple options of connecting, giving you the ability for wireless free (wifi) access to your phone.
In addition to raw control of your device, it also allows you to take screenshots of your phone, as well as create a video recordings of your mobile screen. Copy and Paste works as it does on your desktop. A file browser is also included within the program, which makes it easy to upload files to your phone.
I would recommend this program to anyone who has a Windows Mobile device.
