I currently have an android phone I use to connect to my laptop using phonemypc. I am looking for an app that can connect me from the same android phone to my mac. An important feature (Aside from the ability to remotely control the laptop as if i was sitting in front of it) is the ability to hear the surrounding noises that my laptops built-in microphone detects while I'm connected remotely (outside the LAN). Is there an app for the android phonethat can do this? If no, I would consider getting an iPhone if there is an app for iPhone that can.

  • I'm not a Mac user, so I cannot recommend anything. But while waiting for recommendations, you might wish to take a look at my list of apps to remotely control your Mac (also check the other sections on that page, some apps work for multiple OSes). – Izzy Mar 9 '16 at 20:14
  • Thank you Izzy. It seems the function to be able to hear any sound through the mac microphone is not available for android to Mac or OS Device to mac (unless somebody else knows of it) as it is through phonemypc. Still hopeful though. I'm going to look into spalshtop, an item from your list, in the meantime. – user22098 Mar 9 '16 at 20:21
  • Please do (and if one app works to your convenience, remember to answer your own question :) Good luck! – Izzy Mar 9 '16 at 20:23
