Mobile Mouse Lite allows you to control your computer from the couch
First off, you need to download a Mobile Mouse desktop client from www.mobilemouse.com. There are available version for Windows, iOS, Linux and Android. Once you have installed both, the desktop client and the Android app you will be ready to run the app.
You just need to launch the desktop version and the Android app. It will automatically connect each other. If it doesn't happen, you can use the your computer IP address (that you will find in the desktop client) and the port to connect both devices. Once connected you can start to type, move the cursor (scroll it too) and click as if it really was a mouse. The free version allows you to perform that actions. However, if you upgrade to the Pro version ($2.99) you'll get a pack of six different mouses: media remote, web remote, app switcher, function key, in-air mouse, number pad. All of them will make the remote control of your computer by you even easier. It lets you perform almost everything that you can do with your physical keyboard.
Mobile Mouse has been developed by RPA Technology, and that's the only app they've launched on the market so far.
Unlike too many of this kind of apps, this really works. We haven't noticed problems nor using it either installing it (we've installed the desktop client in Ubuntu and Windows). The only catch is that the free version is too sober (at least it could include one or two of the six paid remote controls). The screen touch response could also be improved. Anyway, the app is highly recommendable.

Not sure what the big problem is with this one. Works flawlessly on my iPhone but on my nexus tablet it's terrible. The cursor jumps all over the place and the tracking update seems to be pretty poor. Love it on ios but not on Android.
I think people would prefer a plug n play kind of app which would work through a Bluetooth or USB. I would myself prefer to use my android cell through a usb as a mouse. This way I wont require a mouse and my mobile also gets charged automatically. You guys have created a pen for writing in space which would have been fulfilled by a pencil.
It never connects when set to auto. Entering the server info manually gets it working pretty well with my old Touch, but on my Nexus it's always jerky and laggy. Disappointing.
There is a problem or bug when it comes to the keyboard use! Average performance while using as mouse trackpad!
Its good...pretty good
