If you are sick and tired of your keypad because it restricts your posture, even when you are using your laptop in bed of if you use a PC, your relaxing days have arrived thanks to an app called Mobile Mouse Lite.
Mobile Mouse Lite instantly transforms your Android device into an in-air, wireless remote for your computer! Sit back and use this remote to surf the web, browse your photo library or control your music player from the comfort of your couch.
It uses the built-in accelerometer to translate your hand motions into mouse movements on your screen. It can also operate as a trackpad remote, allowing you to control your computer with a single finger. Mobile Mouse is an essential part of any home theater PC and a presenter’s best friend.
It uses an innovative application notification system to let the app know what program you are running at any time and show the appropriate keys for that program. This allows Mobile Mouse to provide a single screen remote for controlling all your media and web applications. Mobile Mouse is the only app to feature a full fledged dock, just like you’d find on your Mac! Mobile Mouse Lite supports all the most popular web and media programs for the Mac and PC.
