There are many remote apps to let Android devices control XBMC installations. Is there anything that would act as a generic keyboard or mouse, to allow an Android phone to control Raspbian, ChameleonPI, or any other distribution?

  • This is something I've been thinking about doing, using uinput on the linux side. I won't have time for a few months tho :/ – goldilocks Apr 6 '13 at 18:23

  • Are you looking for an application (I can refer you to those) or for an API which you can use to code your own solution. If nothing currently exists, I am sure that you could cajole some people to help you in this endeavor. – xxmbabanexx Apr 13 '13 at 6:42
  • @xxmbabanexx Looking for an app at this time. Although, if an API could be used to create a custom keyboard with a button layout similar to, say, a Super Nintendo controller... – dangowans Apr 13 '13 at 17:38
  • @Mapperz Thanks for the suggestion. I'll have to try it out next weekend when I get my Android phone back. – dangowans Apr 13 '13 at 17:38

Raspberry Pi Remote Control uses SSH to controll the RPi. Configuration seems to be limited and you cannot change the audio output. I need to use a USB DAC so this probably won't be useful. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.raspberry.remote&hl=en

NetIO looks good, I'm trying it out now. http://store.raspberrypi.com/projects/netio

Both of them seem to be targetted at media applications.
