soti_screenshotIf you want to remote control your Windows Mobile device from your computer SOTI Pocket Controller is the right tool to use. You simple connect the device to your computer with USB or BT. The first time you try to remote your device with SOTI a small application is installed on your device. When this is installed you can use all the functions available on your device from your computer.

I have used SOTI when I am developing C#.NET Compact Framework applications. It’s then very easy to test and debug your application on the device but you run it from the computer. SOTI have a lot of nice functions like screen capture and print screen. Very handy when you are documenting your application.

I also like to have my phone connected to SOTI remote controller when I’m at my computer, then I can navigate in my phone using the mouse on my computer and I can write SMS using my keyboard.

This tool is very good to use for presentations when you need to show a live demo of your application. There are also functionalities like file synchronization, registry editor, system information, task manager etc.

This is not a freeware and it costs 35.95$
