- Connecting the Android phone to RPi
After x-server is up, launch "Simple Computer Remote" app on Android phone.
Go to "Settings > Select Server" and you will see RPi on the list.
Click RPi and go back to the home screen of the application.
Now you see the cursor moving when you touch the screen on the phone :)
(Sometimes the application does not show the RPi as an active server. Try "Reconnect" and see if RPi shows up in the server list.)
If you do not want to use PC next time, you can use "ConnectBot" apps to log into the RPi and startx over ssh.
