[Dica] Turn your iPhone into a remote mouse for your PC with Wifi Mouse …

With most notebooks having HDMI input, nowadays it is very easy to get a movie stored on the laptop and watch it playing on the screen of your 50 inch TV.

As nothing is perfect, the problems start when you have to get up from the sofa to operate the computer, if you don’t have a wireless mouse or even those mice with 4 meters of wire that someone will end up curling up on.

But look how cool: your iPhone can turn into a remote mouse for the PC – and not just the iPhone, but also iPads and any Android or Windows Phone smartphone or tablet, and even more: it can work as a keyboard too.

There are several apps that do this and today we are going to talk about the WiFi Mouse, which was what I tested and is among the best available in app stores because it offers a usage experience practically in real time, while other apps that I’ve tried here certain delay in commands.

Operation is very simple. First, you must, of course, install the application on your iOS (or Android). Then, it is necessary to put on the computer a client, available free on the site, with versions for both Windows, Mac and Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora and source code for compilation). In addition, the two devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network, since that is where they communicate.

Download the client from the website.

After installing the client, just open the app and touch the “Autoconnect” button to automatically connect to the computer with the server running. If you have multiple PCs on the same network, you will need to enter the IP address that the client on the desktop informs, since the feature to automatically connect will choose a random one on the network.

Once connected, just start using. Sliding your finger on the screen moves the mouse arrow, a touch is the normal click with the left button, and a touch with 2 fingers simulates the right button. Touch and drag with 3 fingers to select text, and sliding with your fingers activates the scroll feature. In addition, at the bottom of the screen, you actually have a mouse, with the scroll wheel and two buttons.

So far nothing very interesting. The cool thing is that you can minimize, maximize and close windows using the shortcuts on the screen. In addition, it has several advanced functions to facilitate use in various situations.

These functions are accessed from the footer icon bar. The media part helps you to control a video or music player, with the play / pause, fast forward and rewind buttons and volume controls.

Want to surf the internet using the big screen? No problem, as the app also has specific buttons for this, such as home page, back and forward, reload, favorites and new tab. the Wifi Mouse also comes with controls for slideshows, ideal for when you are going to display a project or work using PowerPoint.

Another nice feature is the fact that you can use the standard iOS or Android keyboard to type text, so you can even send messages on Facebook, write emails, etc. Changing the orientation to landscape (horizontal), the app displays a full keyboard, making typing even easier.

The application is really quite useful and besides providing comfort it can also help in your productivity, as is the case with the slide show feature.

In addition to iPhone and iPad, the WiFi Mouse is compatible with Android (smartphones and tablets, in HD). It comes in a free version with limitations and a paid version costing $ 2.99, about $ 12. Remembering that it is necessary to download the desktop client on the official website of the app.
