    Hi, I'm looking for a universal remote control app to use with my new HTC 8x WP8 phone. I've found a few but none that have the following features in the same app:
    1. Winamp Remote control including full playlist control and media library browsing
    2. Remote desktop streaming - I want to see the computer desktop on the phone
    3. Wake On LAN
    4. Custom keyboard macros and command line options

    I had an app that could do all of this on Android (sorry cant remember the name). Just hoping something similar exists on Windows phone 8.

    Hi mate, Vectir remote control will do the job. I had this on Android and its now available on Windows phone 8. Here is the store link:
    Vectir Remote | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    And you also need the server from Vectir - IR, WiFi and Bluetooth Remote Control, Mobile Phone PC Media Player Controller

    I am using it for Winamp remote control but sometimes use it for desktop streaming.

    Thank you so much! Vectir is the app I had on Android but for some reason couldn't find it in the WP8 app store. Just installed it again and so far looks good!

    There is also PC Remote Pro. I think you can try a full featured add supported version if you're unsure about what all it can do.
