A handy and user-friendly software solution that you can turn to whenever you want to use your iOS device as a wireless trackpad
Apple devices are popular throughout the world mostly due to their intuitive interface and attractive looks, since they appeal to tech-savvy users and novices alike.
If you want more from your iPhone or iPod touch than the standard functions, you can also use them as a wireless trackpad for your PC, by installing Logitech Touch Mouse Server on your computer.
Use an iOS device as a virtual mouse for your PC
In order to be able to use your device as a wireless mouse or keyboard, you first need to install Logitech Touch Mouse Server on your PC.
Next, you need to install the dedicated iOS app on your iPhone or iPod touch, while keeping in mind that you need to install the desktop component on each computer you want to remotely control.
Once you run both apps, both the desktop and the mobile one, you need to establish a connection between the PC and the device (as long as the two are located within the same network, this step can be completed without a lot of user input).
Effortlessly get a wireless trackpad or keyboard
After the said connection has been established, you can use your iPhone or your iPod touch as a remote mouse to move the cursor to the needed position. You can also perform right or left clicks so as to launch apps on your computer without needing to actually use the mouse.
Furthermore, Logitech Touch Mouse Server can also help you use your iOS devices as a remote keyboard, which can come in handy if you want to type an URL within your browser’s address bar or search for a file.
Cross-platform solution to turn iOS devices into remote mice and keyboards
To wrap it up, Logitech Touch Mouse Server can be set to run at Windows startup to ensure that you can turn to your iPhone or iPod touch whenever you want to run a new program on your PC, yet you do not want to get up from the couch.
