Chameleon Launcher: Chameleon Launcher’s developer raised more than $66k on Kickstarter earlier in 2012 to make its “better Home Screen for your Android tablet”, and now it’s out in the wild. It aims to put a better-looking spin on Android’s default widget system, with several of its own and an API for developers to create others. It’s built for tweaking too: users can create several different home screens, and set “context rules” to switch between them in different times and locations.

Amazon MP3: Not, admittedly, a new app, but it now has a new service for Brits. Amazon launched its Amazon Cloud Player in the UK this week, enabling people to play the songs they’ve stored in their music locker. New purchases from the MP3 Store are also automatically added to the Cloud Player.Talking Ginger: The popularity of Outfit7′s Talking Friends apps can be gauged by the fact that Talking Ginger has more than 500,000 installs on Android a matter of days after its release. As with other apps in the series, its animal hero will speak your words back to you, with a focus on his bedtime routine designed to appeal to children.Although smartphones and tablets are quickly replacing conventional computers, the complete switch has yet to be made. This is because there are still many tasks that can only be performed on a desktop computer. For this purpose, we sometimes require remotely accessing computers to perform certain tasks. For example, one may require collaborating with a friend via remote desktop or might have to log in to a remote server at office to perform maintenance.Let’s take a look at some of the best remote access applications for Android, which can help you remotely work on a desktop computer.

TeamViewer For Android
TeamViewer is one of the most famous remote desktop and collaboration applications. It is available for all major platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. This provides users with the capability to collaborate and share their desktop, regardless of their operating system. With TeamViewer you can remotely access computers and assist friends or family members with system issues via desktop sharing.

TeamViewer has both a free and paid version. The paid version is ideal for the corporate environment to collaborate and to remotely provide support to clients, as well as to administer computers. TeamViewer is free for non-commercial use; however a commercial license is required for corporate usage and to acquire advanced features. The paid version provides additional options like enhanced multi-monitor support, faster drag and drop, the ability to save connection settings per computer, AVI format conversion for recorded sessions, optimized performance and more. With TeamViewer you can even take part in group chats and be a part of meetings on the go. Other than remote access, TeamViewer also offers options for VoIP, conference call, whiteboard, and scheduling meetings.

Android-VNC-Viewer
If for some reason you are looking for an alternative for TeamViewer, then android-vnc-viewer is the perfect application for you. It allows users to remotely access their desktop via an Android device and is capable of connecting to most VNC servers including RealVNC (Windows and Linux), TightVNC, x11vnc and Apple Remote Desktop (Mac). You can also import and export settings to a file from your SD card and URLs for importing settings. The latter can be quite useful for deploying a number of devices with the same configurations.

Other major features of android-vnc-viewer include keyboard zoom, the option to configure multiple connections, multiple input modes and more. android-vnc-viewer is a good application for performing basic tasks such as accessing files on your computer and remotely managing uploading and downloading functions. The only problem with android-vnc-viewer is that it requires a VNC server and many users might not have the knowledge to setup a VNC server on their desktop computers.

GPP Remote Control
If you are looking for an application that does not have a complicated interface and focuses on providing the most basic options to remotely control your computer, the GPP Remote Control is just what you need. GPP Remote Control has been designed for users who wish to remotely access their computer to copy, download, upload and delete files, manage upload/download tasks, monitor your home via your computer’s webcam, monitor your child’s computer usage, keep an eye on employees at office, and much more. GPP Remote Control has a simple interface that displays options to manage files, control system processes, access the webcam and use installed messengers on your computer. The best thing about GPP is that it is extremely easy to install, even for people with little knowledge about remote access. For the kind of features that GPP provides, it is obvious that it is not a free application. Nonetheless, the price of US$2.00 is not much to pay in return for an app that can provide you with remote access and home surveillance features.


Splashtop Remote Desktop

Many remote access applications either provide their own interface instead of displaying the remote desktop or suffer from lags when displaying the shared/remote screen. Furthermore, the quality of the remote desktop display is also not very commendable for a majority of apps. Splashtop Remote Desktop is an application that resolves this problem by streaming the desktop of a PC or Mac to an Android device.What makes Splashstop better than a majority of apps is its ability to provide a high resolution display, which enables you to work with the applications, multimedia files, games and more on your computer. Due to its robust functionality Splashtop was awarded as the best mobile app of CES 2012. It is an ideal app for use over Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G networks for making full use of high quality media content on your computer, via your Android device. You can setup a remote connection via Splashtop by installing Splashtop Streamer on your computer. The mobile app will then automatically find your local computer. Alternatively, you can stream your computer via the internet by signing in to your Gmail account. Splashtop costs US$4.99 and can be used with computers running Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X 10.6+.

Firefox for Android isn’t perfect yet, but if you use it as your main desktop browser, you were probably psyched about being able to sync all of your bookmarks, browsing history and all of that good stuff. No Firefox and no Chrome? As good as Kindle Fire’s native browser is, it’s always nice to have options.
