Editors' 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.

This program lets you control any computer's keyboard or pointer with your phone or tablet. You have to install a desktop program -- right now the program is only available for Windows, but Mac and Linux versions are said to be on the way -- and then the app connects automatically as long as it's on the same Wi-Fi. Your touches register instantly, meaning you won't have to wait for any lag in what you type or click. You can even access pinch and two-finger tap controls, which help you zoom and navigate on the page. Mouse & Keyboard Remote can also control your media player, desktop shortcuts, and even voice input, but you need to pay extra to access those. Sadly, the app doesn't recognize alternative keyboard inputs like Swype, but it does let you use any custom keyboards you already use on your phone or tablet.

Though there are some strings attached, this app is excellent at what it does. It may even be worth paying for the full version to turn your phone or tablet into an impressive input device. There's just no getting around how cool Mouse & Keyboard Remote is, and how much you'll use it once you download it.
