Mobile Mouse for Mac

Mobile Mouse Server solves a problem you may not have known you had. What Mobile Mouse Server does is convert your iPhone, iPod, or iPad into a motion-based mouse, trackpad, and wireless remote for your MacBook or iMac. With this software installed on both the Mac and your mobile device, you can manipulate your Mac using your mobile device.

The Mobile Mouse Server installs easily on both Mac and mobile iDevice. Once installed, you can manipulate your Mac from any reasonable distance. Moving the remote device triggers the accelerometer in the device, which translates to mouse movements on screen. While the most obvious application for us was using the remote device to control the Mac connected to a projection screen for presentations, we did find it handy for sitting on the couch playing games from a distance. The screen on your remote device actually displays the necessary keys for many applications, updating as you switch apps.

We really liked Mobile Mouse Server for what it can do. While not everyone will want or need this app (except to show off to friends) for the business user, this is a wonderful addition to the presentation arsenal. We can see this quickly becoming a must-have app for some people.

Developer's Description

Mobile Mouse is the server software to accompany the Mobile Mouse App for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Sit back and surf the web, browse your photo library or control your music player from the comfort of your couch. Our app uses the built in accelerometer to translate your hand motions into mouse movements on your screen. It can also operate as a trackpad, allowing you to control your computer with a single finger. Suddenly your iPhone, iPod and iPad have become an essential part of any home theater and a presenter's best friend. Using an innovative application notification system, your iOS device will always know what applications are running at any time and show the appropriate keys for that program, providing you with a single screen for controlling ALL your media and web applications.
