Best app to make your phone into a mouse.


I like to hook my MacBook up to my tv. I use Bluetooth mouses and such, but I also tend to lose the usb thing or break the mouse somehow. I’ve tried other apps to make my phone a mouse, and being cheap I used the free ones. They never work that well and don’t usually last long before I delete them. I came across this one and decided to try it out. It has far exceeded my expectations. There is a pop up keyboard, volume controls, video controls (including ones for Netflix, VLC, and other video watching platforms). It also has controls for the computer like screen brightness/sleep/shutdown. I highly recommend this app.

Pleased with Improvements


For a relatively inexpensive app, this thing has grown a lot since I first downloaded it. The developer has added a nice assortment of controllers (though powerpoint and maybe a generic game controller would be nice), along with plenty of nice little interface adjustments that make using the app pleasant.

While it feels a little lacking in the gestures department, and running the keyboard input through iPhone’s predictive text and spelling correction stuff would be nice given these baby-sized keyboards, everything else about it is so nice to use it earns five stars.

Good app, but...

I think this app and its companion app, Remote Drive, has every bell and whistle I could wish for and then some. The UI is intuitive and easy to navigate. My only issue is that I run through a VPN on my MacBook and iPhone and I often have connection issues that I never had with Mobile Mouse Pro. However, when they're working properly, Remote Pro and Remote Drive are in a league of their own, far beyond the reach of any competition. I just find myself going back to the ease of MMPro, which is also a great app, it just lacks a lot of what these apps offer.
