Paid apps gone free: Remote Mouse turns your iPhone into the world’s most amazing trackpad

Remote Mouse Free Download

Imagine a single device could replace your keyboard, a mouse and a trackpad. Imagine you already own that device, and the missing link between you and all of this great functionality is a $1.99 app. Now, imagine that app was made available for free for a limited time.

We’re not saying using your iPhone in place of your keyboard and mouse/trackpad is terribly efficient, but Remote Mouse by Yang Tian Jiao will get the job done if you want it to.

The other option, of course, is to forget about the app’s keyboard functionality and simply use it as a futuristic trackpad capable not only of replacing devices like Apple’s Magic Trackpad, but also capable of launching apps on your Windows/Mac computer, controlling media playback and more.

From the app’s description:

Remote Mouse turns your iPhone, iPad or iPod into a wireless user-friendly remote control for your Mac / PC. It’ll surprise you with fully simulated touchpad, keyboard and featured remote panels which make your remote experience simple and efficient.

Giving a presentation? Watching an online movie? Or transferring pictures within a second? We make it dead easy to control your PC/Mac! Just sit back and enjoy the day.
