    Is there any apps that I can install on my phone to control my pc? I have the gmote one now that will let me connect to my computer and play a movie, but are there any apps that will give you full function of using your computer from your phone?

    I have begged the author of Salling Clicker, which IMO is the best remote-control app out there, to release an Android version, even if it has to be TCP/IP only (no Bluetooth support). So far, no luck. You can try posting to his website, e.g. on this thread:
    Salling Software Forums :: View topic - Android

    Also see my half-baked ideas for a workaround, if we had a good MIDP emulator on Android:
    Salling Software Forums :: View topic - Salling Clicker Support for the G1

    Jonas Salling's resistance to Android support is largely based upon the poor Bluetooth support in Android. I'm not 100% clear as to whether Bluetooth OBEX is supported in Android 2.1. I'm also not sure if this is the functionality that Salling Clicker requires.

    I personally use LogMeIn for all of my computers + family computers. They are currently in Beta for LogMeIn Ignition for Android.

    Haven't used it yet, but will be doing so soon.

    Just an update...

    I've officially tried using the LogMeIn Beta app and was able to fully control my computers in my list of computers. The screen is a bit small, but in case of an emergency, you have the control you need.

    I wouldn't do it all the time, but if there was something I needed from a home computer and had to have it right that second, I'd use it.
