Remote Launcher App

Remote Launcher is an easy to use tool that enables you to launch applications remotely on your PC via your Android device with a single click. It can also be used to start your PC up, even if it is turned off, with the built in support for Wake On LAN. It consists of an Android app and a small server program for your PC. You can configure Remote Launcher to start any application on your PC. For example, it can start your mediacenter, shutdown or restart the computer, or run a custom script.
