Hey Everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. Because I’ve got busy with some other stuffs over here. Anyways am back.
So, I made this for those who’re tired of connecting their Raspberry PI with Keyboard And Mouse Everytime and Trying to remember IP of it, You know it’s An Annoying thing ain’t it?
I have collected 10 of the useful apps together, As they’re free for all android Devices.
One of the most annoying part in raspberry pi is connecting it with an external keyboard and mouse. For that the first thing you have to do is enabling SSH for Secure Remote Connection over a network. So that we can connect our Raspberry PI with our mobile device remotely using JuiceSSH.
The Feature of this app is pretty awesome, I Would say.
- Full colour terminal / ssh client
- Popup keyboard with all those normally hard to find characters
- Use the volume keys to quickly change font size- External keyboard support
- Gestures for irssi, weechat, tmux and screen
- Telnet support
- Local Android terminal support
- Dark, Light, 80’s hacker, Molokai, Solarized Dark and Solarized Light terminal color themes
For an overview of solarized color scheme and why it rocks for terminal usage check out http://ethanschoonover.com/solarized
- Click URLs to open in a browser
- Copy & Paste within sessions
- Save / Share SSH transcripts to Dropbox/Evernote/Email & SD card
- UTF-8 character support
- Easily organise your connections by group
- Keep multiple SSH sessions running in the background
- Seamlessly connect ‘via’ other SSH connections with one click
- Immediate access when you open the app to your frequently used connections
- IPv6 support
- Password & OpenSSH private key support
- RSA key generator (encryption supported)
- SSH key agent forwarding
- Support for two-factor authentication (eg: Google Authenticator)
- Identities (users/password/keys) are abstracted from connections. Instead of updating every connection when you change your password – just update the identity and any connections linked to it will use the new password/key.
- zlib compression to improve SSH sessions on high latency connections
This app is also similar to the above one, But this can Remote control and monitor your Raspberry Pi from your Smartphone or Tablet. WiFi or mobile.
It also controls some of the hard- and software extensions. In this release: PiCam/PiNoIR, PiFace Digital, PiFace CAD, Python3 and Apache2 web-server.
You can execute numerous Linux commands, remote control the the Pi and its hardware extentions, reboot (or halt) the Raspberry Pi.
All this is done via a simple user interface where you don’t have to type in commands. Just Connect, Select and Go!
You can add multiple Raspberry Pi’s. So if you have multiple Pi’s or a user account on a Raspberry Pi of one of your friends, you can connect there to.
As the Raspberry Pi has a educational purpose, the Raspi-R app has the ability to (re)create your own scripts so it helps you explore and understand the possibilities of the Raspberry Pi, Linux and it’s hard- and software extensions.
This is great app to check the performance of your Raspberry Pi computer.
RasPi Shows you the frequency,temperature,volts and more system information such as memory, runtime and disk status as well and this apps comes with a widget if you want to keep an eye on your Pi Performance and all you have to do is connecting your raspberry pi via SSH with your mobile using this application.
This application is just for to calculate the run-time of your Raspberry pi computer which is running on a battery pack and nothing special about this app except the features which I have listed below
- Select Model B+, Model A+, Model B, Model A
- Select different capacities of USB power banks
- Select different AA cell capacities and voltages
- Choose from a set of features that affect energy use such as Ethernet, HDMI and WiFi
- Choose from a set of “wildcard” current values to accommodate other add-ons and accessories
This is especially for the media lovers, The Important feature of this app is we can Create playlist from any location reachable from your raspberry pi it’s not only applicable for the song/video which is saved in your local device storage but also for the online media sites like Youtube,Dropbox.You can also start movie playback,network stream via TV.
Want to play movies from your Raspberry Pi on your tv/monitor with HDMI/DVI? then this is the right app for you as we can control movies with your android phone as a remote and we can playback the movie with PenDrive , Hard Disk as well from your home network But, as like the above apps this one also need SSH also the Omxplayer needs to be installed to communicate with your Raspberry PI it’s not necessary to do in Raspian or XMBC as they’re preloaded
You can Also Stream the moves from a Server.
For More Information have a look at the description of this app.
You don’t have to connect your monitor to use your Pi Camera if you have this application on your android device.
As you can use your Pi Camera and ordinary USB Web Camera as a surveillance camera too. the main plus point of this apps is you have to just install this app in your android device and connecting your Raspberry pi via ssh you don’t have to install hell lot of softwares in you RPi. isn’t cool? But, if you want to have a video streaming mode for camera monitoring you have to install media players which do, supports video streaming like VLC and MX Player
This app is mainly for those who can’t remember the IP Address of your raspberry pi. Well, it suits for me too 😛 . Using this app we can find alll devices connected to a Wi-Fi network. Unlimited devices and unlimited networks, Mac Address, Device Manufacture, Open Ports, Ping And Traceroute.It will works with outside your local network as well and it’s all for free! 😀 These are the android apps for raspberry pi
This is great app app if you don’t have monitor to connect it with your raspberry pi, A Question might arise in your mind that, so without A display how am I suppose to control my raspberry pi?Well, For that we can use our Android Devices as a external wireless display. 😀 Ain’t it cooooooool?
This comes with GUI (Graphical User Interface) So you don’t have to mess with the terminal with commands. But, for that you have to install the TightVNC in your Raspberry Pi, you will get a Real Computer interface with Keyboard and Mouse. Another good android apps for raspberry pi
Kodi (formerly XBMC) is a free and open-source media player software developed by the XBMC Foundation, a non-profit technology consortium.
Kodi is available for multiple operating systems and hardware platforms, with a software 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, such as podcasts from the internet, and all common digital media files from local and network storage media. Kodi is highly customizable: a variety of skins can change its appearance, and various plug-ins allow users to access online content on services such as YouTube, Spotify, Grooveshark and Pandora Radio. Versions from 12.0 (codename “Frodo”) have a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) GUI frontend for live TV with Electronic Program Guide (EPG) and high-definition digital video recorder (DVR or PVR) support. This is really awesome piece of software which let us to control our xmbc server remotely using our android device.
So, That’s all for now. Hope this would be an useful thread for Raspberry Pi users and if you found any app like this.Please, Kindly don’t hesitate just Do, post the link of the app in the comment section and personally I’d love to hear from you all.
