Veescope Live Remote Control

The Veescope Green Screen app in a prior post has the ability to be remotely controlled, originally by another iOS device, more recently through the use of the Apple Watch (see screenshot above). I have access to three other iOS devices:

  1. Wifes iPhone (unfortunately with here most of the time!)
  2. iPad classic (does not like anything beyond iOS 5.5, and the Veescope app is iOS 6)
  3. iPad mini (from work and locked down tighter than Southend piers footings – but I am working on it)

I did however pinch the wife’s to have a go, first its a clear simple interface:

  • record
  • snapshot (Apple Watch does not seem to have this? – only going by screenshots seen)
  • next background
  • prior background

My first concern was that I needed to be on the same network and thought this may well cause issues at work (I could at least try out at home) – but fear not as it functions on Bluetooth connectivity, having enabled Bluetooth of both devices, and was a breeze. It may not look fancy or offer obscure options but it works an absolute dream.

I don’t think it’s likely but I would love the option of having this controlled from a Pebble Smartwatch!

Chrome Remote Desktop

Now this is a great app, it’s free, allowing access to your PC from others or remotely. ¬†Install the app into chrome and your good to go! Your PC has a passcode set that you will need when accessing remotely.

The key thing for me is that I run my main PC at home as a server for all my files and on a number of occasions I need to either start a service or reboot and I can do this from my iPhone tablet easily. Although you loose connection during the reboot you regain once rebooted – unlike other systems you do not need to be logged onto your profile for the app to work.

I have even accessed my pc, attached a file to an email, and sent it email to myself at work!
