Winmote 7 (or WMote 7) is a remote control application for Windows Phone 7 that allows you to access and control your computer through your Windows Phone 7 device.
In watching the video demonstration, WinMote allows you to control and view multi-media apps that reside on your computer. Granted my French is énormément rusty, but loosely translated the features include:
- Remotely control your browser to access web sites
- Listen to radio channels
- Watch videos stored on your computer from your Windows Phone
- Remotely control television viewers
- View and download photos
- Remotely control and view Powerpoint presentations
Running from what appears to be a Windows Phone 7 developer's unit, WinMote appears to run smoothly and interfaces nicely with the PC. No word on when or where WinMote will be available. It's an interesting application worth looking for when Windows Phone 7 hits the masses.

How many great applications will I buy when I get my WP7 phone? This is PERFECT for controlling my HTPC with Win7. BOUGHT!!
Me too. I've got about 30 apps penned down already, this is from several months of watching youtube/video demos from sites such WMPoweruser.com, mobilitydigest.com, 1800pocketpc.com, pocketnow.com, neowin.net and so on.
As for the video demonstration, WinMote lets you control and view multimedia applications that are on your computer.
I think we are going to see a lot of Windows 7 HTPCs being build just because of this app. I'm in. Now... who knows of a good site for building HTPCs? Especially with Cable Cards for Comcast. I might even make the switch to local Cable if it works properly.
Remmote operation of PowerPoint presentation is very useful.
