UnifiedRemote-Thumb

United Remote is a phenomenal app that can turn your Android device into a remote for your PC, giving you control over your mouse, keyboard, and media apps (Hulu, iTunes, VLC, and the like). It's awesome. Seriously, here's Artem's reaction from when he first came across the app. It has the ability to change your life. Now Unified Remote is available for 75% off in celebration of its three-year anniversary, meaning it can be yours for just 99 cents.

There's a demo app available that will let you try out the software for free. But at a dollar, count this as one of those purchases you make in advance because there's a chance you might need it someday, even if you don't need it now, and you know you won't have any regrets. Otherwise you will have to fork over $3.99 (which, by the way, it's still worth) somewhere down the road. The decision is yours, but only because we don't have access to your Google Wallet account.

The offer will end Monday at 11AM GMT. Here's a trailer and the requisite links to the Play Store for your convenience.

    Just purchased it. I've used the free version for awhile now and was surprised how great it worked. I had been toying with the idea of getting the full version, so seeing it for 99 cents made that an easy decision.

  • Sourabh Sekhar

    The app is totally worth it's full price.

    • DoctorRabbitfoot

      I have probably used this multiple times a week for at least 2 years. It works flawlessly all the time and the dev has made a lot of improvements and added new remotes over the time. Definitely worth $4.

    • louched1

      Agreed. I use Unified Remote all the time and love it. It's ugly as sin, but it gets the job done and does it well.

    • Prezes Dyrektor

      best app ever, using for years, changed my life (on a daily basis: hibernate and WOL, volume, media control, mouse, keyb...).

      i now install a UR server anywhere i go :)

  • Daniel Traynor

    Awesome app!
    Couldn't live without it.

    Well done to the developers of this - the app is truly worth the full price!

    This app is how I debug my HTPC from the couch.
    Now my legs are atrophied so thanks a lot Unified Remote.

    • sssgadget

      Great app. Bought it last year for 99c when it was their 2 year anniversary.. Use it daily.

  • Jaime

    Thanks! I just bought it :)

  • Firelight

    Bought it! Thanks for the heads up!

  • dude

    There is one thing that keeps me from using this program. It doesn't control other Android devices, which DroidMote does. However DroidMote have more latency so the mouse movement isn't as smooth. I already bought this app, but I'll stcik with DroidMote for now.

    • strauzo

      droidmote not have latency. in android you can have this impression if your wifi driver are not good. try also the windows version or a good android device. Droidmote simulate also a real touch screen that unified remote not have, and is perfect for multitouch OS. windows 8 and Android.

  • Frank

    Bought it last week, dammit. I could have saved 3$.

  • Paparazzi

    Not that I intend to buy it, but why is it that when I click the link, I get a price of $1.07?

    • Reconnnn

      Are you from the United States? 0.99 should be the price then. If not then it will depend on exchange rates.

  • Josh Coppinger

    So. Stupid question that is going to get my flamed to the ends of the earth.

    Does this work on Tvs? Or am I reading too deeply into the remote aspect?

    • Reconnnn

      Depens on what phone you have. If you have an HTC One it will work over IR.

      • Josh Coppinger

        I have the S4 so it should work as well. My question was that i didn't know if it worked on any old HDTV.

        • Reconnnn

          Samsung works but at the moment the user experience is not that good for Samsung devices. This will hopefully be fixed in the next major version. If you like to use it for IR I would recommend getting the full version now when it is on sale and then wait for version 3.

          • Josh Coppinger

            That was my thought! thank you so much for the help

          • Peter

            Can I do anything with this app with a phone which hasn't IR?

          • Reconnnn

            Ofcourse you can. If you like to control your TV you need an external IR transmitter Unified Remote support two different IR transmitter at the moment http://www.usbuirt.com/ and http://www.keene.co.uk/electronic/keene-electronics/keene-ir-anywhere-ir-over-ip-module-(single)-/KIRAM.html. But the main purpose of Unified Remote is to control your computer (Windows, OSX, Linux) for example mouse and keyboard or a specific program.

          • Peter

            That hears good, but can you make an other example? Or is there some kind of "killer feature"? I'm sorry if I disturb you, I'm interested in this app but I actually don't know what I can do except using it as a remote for the TV (with ext. IR)

          • Reconnnn

            Take a look at the feature page in the website http://www.unifiedremote.com/features

  • SVem26

    10/10 would have bought again, if I hadn't bought it already

  • alessiolarva

    Nothing like this for mac?

  • José Daniel Alfaro

    I paid full for it, if I had just waited 'til this... well, but it is woth $4!

  • http://www.LOVEanon.org/ Michael Oghia (Ogie)

    It's not for Mac though, right?

  • mrjayviper

    How is this different from say vnc or team viewer? Thanks

    • Reconnnn

      It is not an screen sharing remote. You use it when you like to have a simpler interface infront of you TV or at a party. Unified Remote gives you a simpler interface with the controls you need.

  • Wilson Lim

    glad I checked AP today :D bought this app! :D

  • Deonix

    Finally. The best app for controlling your PC over wifi/bluetooth.

  • NBM

    I also paid full price... and it was/is worth it

  • Guest

    well

  • Guest

    well 2

  • Tom

    I found the original price to be too much for what it was. But at 96 eurocents hell yes instabuy now :)
