"Turn your Android into a computer mouse"

Reviewed by / Oct 21, 2011

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.

    Seriously getting worse with each update. Used to work smoothly... What are they doing to this app? Mouse is completely choppy and typing does not work properly. Backspace causes it to type gibberish. Please fix!!

    I loved the iPhone version it worked flawlessly & looked good, but this has the looks but pathetic performance if it connects at all. This needs a from the ground up rebuild plain & simple!
