Vectir is an application designed to offer you a complete solution for remote controlling PC applications from your mobile phone or tablet via Wireless, Bluetooth or Infrared connection, by installing a server component on the PC. This means that it doesn't rely on the Internet, so the remote device must be in proximity of the computer.
The software tool provides access with the mouse and keyboard, desktop, file explorer and power options, along with shortcuts to some third-party apps, such as iTunes, Winamp, Windows Media Player and Power Point.
For example, when it comes to the media player, it is possible to play, pause or next track, as well as to increase or decrease the volume from afar. It offers total freedom when it comes to enjoying multimedia content, as long as the Vectir app is also installed on your mobile or tablet.
The installation process is not complicated, and you are guided through the necessary steps for selecting the mobile device and setting up the connection, as well as for specifying tbhe preferred connection method and automatic configuration for the installed apps supported by Vectir's plugins.
Once the connection between the two is created, you are able to choose one of the remote profiles needed in order to view your computer screen or transform the phone into a mouse pad or player controller, in case you are not satisfied with Vectir's original choice (with optimized settings for a simpler UI).
A remote profile designer with advanced features is available to those willing to spend enough time tinkering with the utility. Besides, it's pretty straightforward overall and, with a little practice, you’ll be able to master Vectir quite fast.
With all of the above to consider and much more to discover, it’s safe to say that Vectir is, by all means, a powerful, reliable and practical tool for desktop remote control with the help of a smartphone or table. The biggest downside to it is that the mobile devices must be near the computer.
