Mobile Mouse is one of the most useful applications out there for iPhone and iPod Touch. Its primary function is to allow users to control their PC remotely from their iPhone or iPod, and not by showing the PC screen on the device - like other applications do -, but by permitting the user to take control of the mouse and keyboard of the computer. This eliminates the need for a fast Internet connection, as the data transferred between the iPhone and the computer is minimal. In order to use it, one must download a program for the computer and an app for the iPhone/iPod. The computer program is free, but the app is not.

I am going to talk about the iPhone app first, as it is the one the user actually works with when using the program. There are two ways of using the mouse - the first, and the most simple, involves sliding your finger throughout the iPhone screen in the direction where you want the cursor to go, while the mouse buttons are located at the bottom of the screen. The other way to use the mouse is with the help of an accelerometer that comes with the iPhone, tilting the device in the direction you want the cursor to go. In this case, the screen looks like a real mouse and the buttons are located accordingly. In both cases a scroll wheel is provided, and it works pretty well. Both ways work perfectly, although I find that the former more practical than the latter - in order to activate the keyboard, the user must shake the iPhone until the keyboard shows up. Then, one just needs to touch the keys in order to input data into the PC. more
