Perfect for what you want
Amazing application, it does what exactly you want it to do.
Just some simple notes i want to share with you:
-Add volume buttons, or just make the volume adjuster buttons on the device work insted, it's really annoying that i need to drag down the cursor just to increase the volume.
- add extra freedom in customization options, such as editing the design, shapes colors and sizes of the buttons on the track pad.
- it's an extremely battery drainer.
I need to have my charger plugged in, or the battery will be empty after a couple of hours.
- the one hand scrolling method is very clunky, you can do something better than this.
How about, if you hold down your finger on the track pad, just slid up and down while your still holding your finger on the pad, i guaranty the smoothest scrolling method in this amazing app.
One last issue, I'm using the go keyboard on my iPhone 6s, when i type anything followed by a space, the application will duplicate the same word, I've tried disabling all the text options like (suggestion, auto word replacement....).
the only solution that kinda worked is to go back to iphone's default keyboard, but i do love my go keyboard, sooo.. Kindly fix it !?
Again, thanks for this amazing app.
Cannot deny perfection
I have downloaded a couple of app's for the same purpose but both were never easy nor practical as this app! I truly loved it to the extent that places it in the home screen.. GO HippoVNC, you guys rock!
I used all remote mouse apps this was the best
The rest are haggling you to upgrade or are full of ads .. This one works as it should without annoying you .
