How can I control my Raspberry Pi wirelessly?

Sun Oct 13, 2013 3:09 pm

I want to control my Raspberry Pi from my Android or iPhone, but I have no idea how. That is, I can do SSH and commands and connect to my Raspberry Pi, but I want my Android/iPhone to send commands when it is tilted, or touched in a certain place. I've seen some people do it with a remote control car and an iPhone, and I want to know how. Is there an app or something for this, or do I build the app myself?
Thanks, Nicholas

You'll pretty much need to build an iPhone/Android app yourself to do this.

Unfortunately to run such a program on an iPhone you'll need to become an Apple developer which costs around £60.

Hey, thanks! And it's free too. I'll definitely use that app :)

Oh no!
My Android doesn't support the app :'( Any other (free) apps like that one out there? If not, I'll buy NetIO

No idea whether anyone's tried porting this,

But if it worked, you could probably set up icons in X to run scripts to do things. Zenity is quite good for simple dialogue boxes. But the display would be on the screen, not on the phone.
