    I have a DROID 2.

    I am looking for an app, if one exists, to do the following:

    I spin on my indoor bike some mornings for like 60-90 minutes. I would like to check up on my emails, ebay, facebook, etc... I was thinking I could set up my laptop right next to my indoor trainer, and connect the laptop to my TV via an HDMI cable. But while I am on the bike, I need a way to get my DROID2 to behave just like a keyboard so I can visit different websites...

    ANY SUGGESTIONS???

    Is there any reason you cant just use the phone to get your emails and browse the web?

    Anyway, Remote Desktop, LogMeIn, and PhoneMYPC all do a great job.

    I do that now, but the droid screen is too small to look at for that period of time. I work out in front of a 42inch tv, so I might as well try to take advantage of it...


    PLUS, I thinj what I am looking for is GMOTE. I want to control my laptop using my droid.

    Several options listed above. I've never really cared for them myself plus I have a tablet that I'd use in such cases.

    I suggest trying the options out first hand. Best is always highly subjective, regardless of topic. If you could clarify exactly what would make one option better than another in your opinion it will help those making suggestions. Any specific features/requirements/etc?
