    I'd like to connect to my girlfriend's phone (she's currently thousands of miles away) to be able to help her with stuff on her phone (customizing it, help with learning how to do stuff). Is there an app that allows you to remotely connect to another person's phone and manipulate the interface using your own phone or a PC?

    We use a program called Crossloop to do it for PC stuff, connecting her computer to me via the internet so I can do tech support type stuff on her computer as if I was there. I'm hoping there's something similar for Android. Yes I know she should learn on her own, but she's stubborn. ;)

    You want something like 'PDAreach' which we former PalmOS folks had.

    But on android the best you can do is remotely install the android development system on her computer (e.g., using VNC) and then have her occasionally connect her phone to that computer while you use the command-line 'adb' remotely. You can also try installing 'Android VNC Server' on her rooted phone. Neither solution seems satisfactory. Good luck.
