Hi I was curious if anyone could help me out with some questions i have about the running applications on my S4. When I looked at application manager and running applications there is always remote control running and when I click on it the path or whatever is simalliance.openmobileapi.service.remot what is this ??

From the SIMalliance website:

The SIMalliance Open Mobile API Specification v2.05 enables mobile applications to access different Secure Elements that may be present in a mobile device, such as a UICC or an embedded SE.

In other words, it's a normal part of the phone.
