    The UI is quite basic which I like and it's pretty easy to set up. Works well. Would like portrait keyboard not just landscape.

    I'm so tired of things not just working in Linux based apps and OS. Left mouse click would not work no matter what I did. Then I installed another app that works the same way this one should through xdotool and it worked flawlessly the very first time, no hassle! Don't waste your time with this app try XMouse instead.
