App in Focus: Roccat Power Grid
Roccat has a very interesting app that they recently released called the Roccat Power Grid. It’s a nifty tool to monitor and control your desktop via an iPhone or Android app.
My new gaming rig has 16GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, GTX 680 GPU.
The idea is pretty simple yet novel — download and install the software on your Windows PC, download the app on your smartphone from iTunes or Google Play.
Once the PC and your smarpthone is connected on the same WiFi network, you can connect the app to your PC and start monitoring CPU, RAM, storage, network stats, etc.
You can also use the general volume or even volume of specific applications — say, for example, you are playing DotA 2 and the background sound of music player or messenger is louder than you want them, you can use the app and dial them down individually.
Here’s a video to show how that works.
The Power Grid can also be customized to show your own widgets, controls and monitors.
