Here at BlackBerry Live 2013 we met up with Hisham Hassan Bakr, an Egyptian developer in charge of a PC control app called AIO Remote. For some time, All In One Remote has been offering the ability to seamlessly control your PC, Linux, or Mac computer over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, complete with native BlackBerry 10 keyboard, presenter slide control, media control, mouse movement, and file system access.
One of my favorite features was the ability to custom program your own virtual buttons which would activate set keystrokes on the computer. Hisham then revealed his intentions to expand functionality to be able to remotely control Android from the app, or to control BlackBerry the other way around. This could be very useful for users that regularly plug their secondary devices into the big screen but still need the ability to access it. As Hisham put it, "this is the first of its kind, to control the world." To be fair, he didn't have anything show on this front just yet, but considering how well the original app works, I'm eager to see Android remote control once it's available.
Personally, I've always stuck to Luko Remote for these kinds of capabilities, but it's great to see someone else having their hand at it, and more importantly, trying to do something different.
