Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, X-remove is a remote control Tizen OS application, enabling the users to control their Windows 8/7/Vista/XP computer via bluetooth, from their Tizen based device.
The app was developed for the Bada operating system, but it has been ported to run on Samsung and Intel’s Tizen.
- Works on the Bluetooth technology (Microsoft Bluetooth Stack).
- Provides numpad with 31 keys.
- Mouse pad controlling is supported.
- Windows Media Center and Media Player v11 and v12 can be controlled.
- Enables controlling of Power DVD 10, Acrobat Reader, PowerPoint, Winamp, Zune, and others.
Unfortunately, you can remote control only your Windows system with X-Remote, since it uses the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack and the .net framework 3.1.
A 16 minutes demonstration video on how to remote control your Windows computer via a Tizen device has been created:
As a reminder, Tizen is an Android compatible, Linux based system, developed by Samsung in collaboration with Intel and sponsored by the Linux Foundation. Despite the fact that Samsung is involved, the first tablet running on Tizen has been created by a japanese manufacturer and aims to provide both documentation and a testing environment for developers and Tizen enthusiasts. While Samsung Redwood Z9005 (the first Tizen based smartphone developed by Samsung) has been announced, a Tizen Running Samsung Galaxy S4 may be released in 2014. Samsung has also created the Samsung NX 300M camera, the first camera running on Tizen.
