The currently free app Mobile Mouse by R.P.A. Tech instantly transforms your iPhone or iPod touch into an in air, wireless remote for your computer. Sit back and use this remote to surf the web, browse your photo library or control your music player from the comfort of your couch. Mobile Mouse uses the built in accelerometer to translate your hand motions into mouse movements on your screen. It can also operate as a trackpad remote, allowing you to control your computer with a single finger.
Mobile Mouse is an essential part of any home theater PC and a presenter’s best friend. Mobile Mouse uses an innovative application notification system to let the iPhone know what program you are running at any time and show the appropriate keys for that program. This allows Mobile Mouse to provide a single screen remote for controlling ALL your media and web applications.
Mobile Mouse is the only app to feature a full fledged dock, just like you’d find on your Mac! Mobile Mouse supports all the most popular web and media programs for the Mac and PC. New remote definitions are automatically downloaded daily to your computer, so you will always have the newest remotes as we create them.
