VMD Remote Control


Control your computer's VMD session from your Android device!

This app requires you to have VMD 1.9.1, from the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group at the University of Illinois, installed on your computer.

Note: This app does NOT give you the ability to run VMD _ON_ your Android device. It allows you to remotely control a VMD session running on your desktop computer.

Once this app is connected to a running VMD session you can use it rotate, translate, and pinch 'n zoom your system. It can be used to move through the frames of a trajectory that you have loaded into VMD and can also act
as a tracker.

Script writers can configure the four user buttons to perform whatever VMD action they desire.

Visit the website http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/plugins/remote/ for more information on the usage of the app.

Recent changes:
- When doing rotates, a grey circle is now set at the location where you start the rotate
- Permission ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE is used to determine if wifi is turned on. If not, a warning message is printed to the screen.
