AndroBuntu is an open source utility for remote control of a GNOME desktop, targeted specifically at Ubuntu Linux.

- Uses the XFree86 "media keys" for playback and volume control
- Scripted "bedtime mode" button, which blanks the computer screen, shuts off lights, and starts an alarm clock app (currently hardcoded to NightClock)
- X10 device control
- A "beam text blurb" function that will append to a pre-specified file on the server

The remote control is implemented by the use of two modules together: Ubuntu server and Android client. This app is the Android client part. The Ubuntu server module can be downloaded from the project's page:
