Method and system of controlling other devices

Remote control for mobile device is widely used, however, there are two disadvantages :
-UI is different from both two devices, like the icon arrangement, or the item sequence etc, user is only familiar with their own device, sometime, it may take times to find the right place they would like to operate on a remote phone
-When in remote control mode, the remote device is usually can not active due to the remote connection, our disclosure could make this transparent
Our disclosure provide a pair function to match the operation on different mobile device, thus user could operate on their own mobile device with their familiar UI to control the remote mobile device, no matter what the remote device UI looks like
