Remote Mouse is a free application that allows you to control your PC wirelessly. Using the touchpad of your Android, iOS, and Windows Phone, the application is able to simulate mouse movements and keyboard input so that you can control your PC from a distance. Remote Mouse works via a WiFi or 3G connection.

Remote Mouse lets you use your mobile device as a wireless mouse and keyboard; that way, you can use the trackpad of your phone or tablet to click, right click, scroll, and zoom in/out, and the keyboard to enter text and use function keys like ctrl, alt, etc., with support for landscape and portrait mode. You will be able to open and run any program in your computer, work with presentations, run media applications, access your files and folders, and perform just about any action as if you were in front of your PC.

Remote Mouse consists of two applications, a server that is installed in your PC and a client app for your mobile device. Setting them up is very simple and the only requirement is to have both devices connected to the same wireless network, which can be WiFi or 3G. The server application does not require any particular configuration; the mobile counterpart, in turn, detects the server app automatically, without the need to enter MAC or IP addresses manually. Options like password protection can be found in the server's settings dialog.

Remote Mouse is available in two editions, one of which is free and offers basic mouse and keyboard control, and includes ads in the mobile edition.
