Well I did some research as to what was a decent RDP app for my Droid 2 Global. I finally decided to give this one a try.

I then went into Netremote Designer and re-sized my Nokia 770 skin to the Droids 854X480 resolution and told it to automatically resize all the graphics. I was eager to test this out on my Droid. I have to say I am more then pleased with the result. The Now Playing skin AS-IS runs great. I can now create a more custom Android style skin to use. Still playing with some ideas on paper for a Portrait version. But for now this works.

Here is the light dimmer screen. The light bulb has 10 increments of brightness that reflects the actual status of the light

I decided to change the Browse screen as the small icons are just too hard to deal with on the Droid. So I can up with a dialog screen to choose to 'Play' the track or album(s) or 'Add' the track or albums(s) to the current playlist.

I have been doing a lot of research on the Droid phones, need to make sure it performs for my business needs as well as my personal needs. So far my needs have been met nicely and will be getting one soon.

John what you have done here shows that having a NR screen on the Droid phone is certainly possible. Once I get my phone, I will be following in your footsteps.

Thanks for your efforts in finding a solution to the NR on the Droid.

I have updated my Now Playing skin for my Droid 2 Global to handle the Grace Digital Audio Internet tuner as well as the Shinybow Matrix Switcher.

Well I guess it has been awhile since I had worked on my Droid skin for Now Playing. I forgot the all important big finger rule. Working on the skin on the PC things always seem fine then when you actually put it to a test using it on the Droid lay-outs don't always work as well. So I had to move the thumbs and skip to a dialog screen accessible by tapping the album cover. This is working better for fat fingers. I also need to break up my Matrix/Audio control screen for that very reason. The buttons are just too small and crowded together. That for a later day.
