Configure Android smartphones remotely using Zikk
Today's smartphones are nifty little gadgets that can do all kinds of cool things – play music, take pictures, record video, run apps and what not. But for people who are new to modern tech, getting the hang of these handsets can be a bit difficult. That's why apps like Zikk exist.

Zikk is a simple, easy-to-use application that allows one Android smartphone to configure another Android handset remotely. For the purpose, both devices have to have Zikk installed, of course. Once the connection between the two is established, the user who is providing assistance may remove or download free apps, edit contact details, create reminders and alarms, connect to Wi-Fi networks, modify display and sound settings on the remotely controlled phone, and more. According to the software's developer, the process is secure so none of the personal information of the two parties is at risk.

At this time, Zikk is still in beta so it might not work perfectly, although it should be compatible with most Android smartphones running version 2.2 or higher of the platform. Compatibility with Android tablets is coming in the near future, and we hope to see support for even more settings added soon.

This seems extremely pointless to me. For one, you have two smartphones and secondly, what if the new user doesnt know how to download an app?

Its like when you see leaflets saying : Want to learn how to read?

u just went full retard, never go full retard...

lets say your "dad" owns an Android, but like all dads he's technologically challenged and cannot set an alarm or a calendar reminder for example. you do it for him, like for example set a reminder for the groceries or take medication.

P.S. - you have to teach him to "approve" all authorizations through the app
