    Lightbulb CarPC Remote Control feature

    Just curious on the future of PhoneControl and what direction its headed in.

    So far it has focused on controling your phone from the PC side.
    Are there any plans in the future to control the PC from the phone, and use the phone as a bluetooth remote?
    Very similar to how FMA is used as a remote, and other software?

    Since its now intergrated/ plays friendly with frodo player, it would be very cool to use my phone as a bluetooth remote to control frodoplayer and windows in general.

    Now i know you say, why not just use the other apps that are allready out that does this allready, well i am and have been. The problem with all the other apps to be honest is no one has done it completely the right way yet. Some people are close, pc control

    only feature missing is to mute winamp when the phone rings.
    FMA in my honest opinion is just too buggy and dosent seem like its going to get any better any time soon as far as stability goes.
    and the other apps arent even worth the sever space.

    So Zorro... any future plans, suprises??

    AFAIK this feature will only work on couple of SE phones. I'm not quite sure wheter this make sense to be implemented. I'll take a sneak peak into it.

    Concering the future plans of PhoCo... they are confidential and top, top, top secret for now. In other words... I could tell you... but I would have to kill you afterwards

    Ok, here's the deal... I'll integrate this function but you have to document it and to help others using it... ok?

    zorro/liquid_smoke,

    I'll be very interested in this also, I'm communicating with PhoCo in AIMEE at the moment, so going the other way will be very useful as well
