This app is probably the best example on how a simple app can just fulfill it's purpose ans stay humble enough to keep away from ads and bloat. It's so rare nowdays it's feels like I've found a gem of some sort. Rly! It just works! You run the server on your PC once and Phone will super easyliy find it and connect just by choosing ip address from a list. and then.. The reaction time is so low it's probably reading info from the furute! And again, it's doing it over wifi! Incredible.
Works better than expected! This is a terrific app. There is hardly any noticeable lag between inputs on the phone and mouse movements on the screen. It boasts an uncluttered main screen and sleek interface that similar apps lack. It's got all the basic features you'd expect, plus some additional functionality if you want it (including optional browser and media toolbar buttons). Sets the standard for touchpad apps - paid & free alike.
Great app. Works perfectly as touchpad, when clicking on something you can type into you just click the keyboard and start typing, has multimedia thumbnail for operating standard multimedia buttons, settings are very satisfactory. Good settings for dragging with two fingers, scroll bar on the side, two finger click as RMB. Awesome. Only missing thing can perhaps be the unability to connect through bluetooth, but since I'll be using this only at home that I have covered with wifi, it's no big deal.
Needs update for lack of menu button I recently upgraded from an S4 to a Note 4, and because the Note 4 has a Recent Apps button in place of the Menu button, I initially couldn't access the options so I can connect to my computer. The ONLY workaround right now is to enable "Sidekey Panel," add the "More Options button" and then click that once inside the Touchpad app to access the connect option. I hope you'll update the app so that other people with newer phones can use the app easier or at all
Brilliant App This app works extremely well for me. Editing the apps options may resolve some of the issues mentioned in other reviews. I'm running lag free on Windows 7 64 bit and CyanogenMod 7 on an HTC Hero. App runs on WiFi, I had the WiFi on my phone off and it took a second to figure out why the app wasn't working at first.
If used with Samsung Galaxy Note you can handwrite notes to your PC... This is an excellent app. No problems installing (make sure your 2 devices are on the same WiFi) - very quick and easy. Works with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. Used as a mouse it's very good - easy to use and intuitive. Used with my Samsung Galaxy Note I can handwrite emails and Word documents rather than type. This is just so brilliant! Thank you - it's made computer life so much easier.
