Remotr is a free app available on google play store. It let your stream games in you hard disk to your android smartphone. Thankfully, it does not requires internet connection. Though, you need to setup both devices at same network. Using either mobile hotspot or PC hotspot.
Remotr works better than Monect which is for some reason my favorite app. Unlike monect which provides a ready made layout. Remotr Game Streaming app allow you to make it from scratch. This gives you the full control over your PC game controls. You will see how to in later.
I will also make a blog post on how to do the same with Monect, later.
Remotr Tutorial to Stream PC Games to Android

Downloading & Setting Up Remotr App
For this we need Remotr app.
Download Remotr app from Play Store. Next thing to do is to download Remotr server app from the official site. Install both and open it.
Remotr requires you to sign up first. Though verification is not required. You need to sign up using any email ID through the mobile app. Next thing is to login using the same credential on PC.
Adding Games to Remotr
Once both setup, you need to add games into your PC server app. For it click on Add Games, you can find it on lower left side. Browse through the drives and select the EXE file. You can add any game new using the text field. One more thing, you can attributes like -windows etc to the game. Attributes are special runtime keywords which modify game setting.
If you have added any game this will sync in mobile app too. Open mobile app. Login on it and select your desktop. On successful connection it will show games name with their logo (if available). I have all the old games so in game snapshots not available for them.
Setting up Controls to Play PC Game on Android
After launching a game your first priority is to setup in game controls. Its easy first understand what keyboard keys your game requires and then setup it using drag – n – drop. For this click on Remotr logo on screen. For better tutorial I have made a quick video. Click and play below video.
Remotr Game Streaming Performance
Remotr game streaming is smooth but not very well for low end devices. Consider a heavy smartphone like OnePlus 3T can stream games like GTA V. Though I dont have any heavy game in PC. I played Hitman Silent Assassin and as expected it lags. The same lags and delays as in Screen mirroring. Still it is a good option to control your favorite pc game using android. If you like to play NES games in PC using android follow this tutorial. For you guys, I have made a video gameplay of few moments. Please have a look. So guys, in this way you can play gta v in android with minor lags but full controls support.
Hope you will not face any trouble doing so. Remember, you can adjust quality from settings if it lags. Let me know which game you are going to play with it.
