Control your Pocket PC from a Windows desktop
- Attractive design
- Packed with features
- 'Wipe device' function
- Interface initially a little confusing
Packed with advanced features, SOTI Pocket Controller Pro is probably the best tool available for controlling a Windows Mobile device from your Windows desktop. The aim of the program is to allow you to view whatever is on your PDA's screen, in a window on your desktop. From this window, you can interact with and manipulate your Windows Mobile device as if it were in your hand. The advantages of this sort of remote control are varied: we find the program particularly useful for advanced configuration on a mobile device, something which can be pretty fiddly using just a stylus or phone keypad.
This latest version of the app includes a much improved skins management tool (allowing you to literally have your phone on your desktop), a nifty registry editor tool and a quick shortcut for wiping your device. Otherwise, its popular screenshot, command line and system information tools remain unchanged and as good as ever.
