Mouse & Keyboard Remote review

Mouse & Keyboard Remote is one of the finest ways to control your computer with a smartphone or tablet. Though it hides many of its best features behind a paywall, that's fairly standard and easy to forgive once you see everything this app does. It's worth downloading just for the cool factor.

WiFi Mouse review

WiFi Mouse lives up to its promise in that it does turn your device into a usable wireless mouse, keyboard, or trackpad, allowing you to remotely access your Windows or Mac computer. However, it suffers from malware and other non-technical issues.

Horizontal scrolling: This can be a pretty big headache, and especially if you have a lot of windows open on a smaller screen, you'll want to be able to pan sideways, as well as up and down. This app makes that possible, and in a very convenient way.

Customizable: Of course, … Read more

MOUSE-Space GOLauncherEX Theme review

MOUSE-Space GOLauncherEX Theme makes your home screen cuter by adding an astronautical mouse with a precious face. While the theme moves smoothly, the lack of contrast between the dock bar and the moonscape behind it makes the gray launcher buttons rather awkward. Also, because it uses plenty of gray, this theme can feel drab at times.

To use MOUSE-Space GOLauncherEX Theme, you need to have GOLauncher, the most popular Android launcher. After you select the new theme as the default in GOLauncher, you'll make the acquaintance of a spectacled space mouse with an oversized head, dressed in an astronaut'… Read more

Despite the inclusion of dozens upon dozens of other items, the tube came to be known as the "Steve Jobs … Read more
