Use your smartphone as a mouse and keyboardSmartphones have become tools for multiple tasks, not just for making calls and sending text messages, with the advent of apps for smartphones there have been many ways to use it, both for entertainment and for everyday life. They have facilitated so many aspects of daily life that are not only being developed to make things easier, but to deliver greater performance and do things faster, a clear example is the application that uses our camera to capture a mathematical equation and solve it and also show us step by step how it was solved.

Technology has many applications for everyday life, it depends on if we utilize it for good or just for entertainment, this is not to say that entertainment is bad or a waste of time, but we usually concentrate so much on this aspect that we waste the good profits of technology. Many applications have different functions, if you think you can not give good use to the apps that exist today, we will show you how to use it as a great tool and even more if you do not have a mouse or keyboard.

Using your smartphone as a mouse

A smartphone with Android operating system or iOS can be used as an alternative to a computer mouse, this could be very useful if ours is lost or damaged. There are many applications that can perform this function and here in Vofeel we will show you how to go about it.

  • 1. Install application on smartphone
  • 2. Install the Windows, Linux or Mac application client
  • 3. Connect the PC and the smartphone to the same Wi-Fi network
  • 4. In the smartphone application add a device (if you are asked for an IP address you will have to copy it from the PC or scan a QR code)
  • 5. Check the status on the touch panel

If you follow these steps you can safely configure any smartphone as a mouse for your computer, one of the most recognized applications that follows this series of steps is Remote Mouse, when we refer to installing the client on our computer, we mean the client that provides the application for our smartphone with the same name for our computer, it is necessary to receive the movement in the touch panel of the application while we are using it on our smartphone.

Using it as a Keyboard

The steps to follow to use it as a keyboard are almost the same as that of using it as a mouse, the difference is that we use the keyboard of our smartphone in conjunction with the client on our computer to send the keystrokes and keys. A very useful tool if we need to type on our desktop computer without getting up from bed, it all depends on the utility that you give to this application.

  • 1. Install application on smartphone
  • 2. Install the Windows, Linux or Mac application client
  • 3. Connect the PC and the smartphone to the same Wi-Fi network
  • 4. In the smartphone application add a device (if you are asked for an IP address you need to copy it from the PC or scan a QR code)
  • 5. Check if the keys of our smartphone are being used simultaneously with our computer.

Unified Remote, two in one

Just as we can only use it in a way there are developers who have dedicated themselves to having an all in one, with the possibility of applying both functions in a single application. The most popular application is Unified Remote, it is only available for phones with Android and Windows operating systems, the iOS operating system is left out however they have got other alternatives in the application stores, you just have to search, Unified Remote is currently the most popular in the apps market.
