The mouse cursor and PowerPoint presentations can also be controlled through the facility of a mobile phone. Computer commands can also be run, and text messages can be sent through one’s desktop. Other programs which can be remotely accessed are Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Windows Explorer. The program can be used both at home and in business settings.
A computer with an installed Bluetooth dongle, and a Bluetooth supported mobile phone are imperative to use Mobile Witch Remote Control.
