There are plenty of these available for your mobile phones, too. One of the better options at your disposal is the Remote Link (PC Remote) app available on Android through the Google Play Store. The way it works is fairly simple. You install the app itself on your phone, and a server on the computer you wish to control remotely. Then, you connect to this server via the app.
