This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Touch Mouse by Logitech turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a wireless trackpad and keyboard for your computer.
Do you connect your computer to your TV? Touch Mouse is the perfect solution for when you want to stay in control from the comfort of your couch. Point, click, scroll and type in any application—on a Mac or a PC.
Touch Mouse works over Wi-Fi, so you can use it anywhere in the house. And to make typing easier, text is displayed on the screen of your iPhone or iPod touch as you type, so you can see what you’re doing without having to continually look up and down.
- Multi-touch trackpad with option for two or three buttons
- Two-finger scrolling
- Keyboard with modifier keys
- On-screen text display while typing
- Show or hide the keyboard at any time
- Trackpad and keyboard are available in landscape and portrait modes
To make Touch Mouse work, you will need to download the Touch Mouse Server software from www.logitech.com/touchmouse and install it on your Mac or PC. This software enables the Touch Mouse app on your iPhone or iPod touch to find your computer and communicate with it.
- Mac with OS X 10.5 or higher
- PC with Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
- Computer and iPhone or iPod touch must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network
- Touch Mouse Server software must be installed and running on the computer you want to control
Basic functionality, but works.
I've been trying several of the iOS mice/keyboard apps and settled on this one. This one is free, no in-app purchases, and most importantly, no ads. The functionality is as basic as it gets. There are free/paid apps that do more, but in reality their extra functions are fluff. A power button? I can just click Start and Shutdown. A media player add-on? I can control all media player functions from the keyboard.
The one negative - and this applies to ALL of these iOS nice/keyboards - is that they will not work when a UAC Windows prompt pops up.
I love this app, the best of its kind
I've had this app for quite a while now and I have got to say that I have never been able to find another app that works as well as this one. This app is extremely responsive, allows for use of extra command keys, and has a great keyboard. Also, everyone thinks it really cool when I use it.
Logitech site no longer has Touch mouse server (required to use) :((
I have used this app with great success for years. I now need to re-install the server program on the PC, but the URL is dead and it is no longer on the Logitech site! A search brings up a supposed download page, but the file is actually a Gkey developers kit.
I am VERY sad. Please, Logitech, fix your download page and at least give us access to the correct download again!
This was a 4-5 star app. I wish you would revive it.
