Usually I use SOTI Pocket Controller when I want to remote control a Windows Mobile device (post about SOTI Pocket Controller). Today I were working on a laptop with no remote control software installed and since SOTI is licenced I started looking for a freeware application. I found MyMobileR and it took me 5 minutes to install active sync, MyMobileR and connect my HTC Touch Pro to the laptop.
MyMobileR works very well and have the most important functionalities for a remote control application:
- View the mobile device screen on your PC and use it with you mouse pointer

If 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.
