Remote control of a Raspberry Pi is typically handled via SSH or VNC. But RaspController, a free app created by Ettore Gallina and available from the Google Play Store, aims to solve all of our remote connection problems at once and does it in a friendly and clear manner.

Installation of RaspController is a breeze; we tested it on our Android 10 smartphone and an older Android tablet. Initial setup which requires SSH access to the remote Pi is simple.

You can connect and control multiple Raspberry Pis from one app using their hostname/IP address, and can name each Pi to quickly identify them.
