Android: Use Your Phone As A Wireless Keyboard & Touchpad

RemoteDroid is a FREE application that allows you to use your Android phone as a wireless keyboard and touchpad for your computer.  This is awesome if you have a computer hooked to a tv and you want to surf the web, play music, videos, powerpoints, etc but don’t want to have a keyboard and mouse cluttering up your coffee table.  Available in the Android Marketplace.

“Key features include:

  • Touch-screen mouse control
  • Two onscreen mouse buttons, with right-click/control-click functionality
  • Use in either portrait or landscape mode
  • Works with any WiFi network — no Bluetooth hardware or adapters required
  • Compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems

RemoteDroid consists of two parts: the phone application you can download from Google’s Android Marketplace, and a companion server application for your computer that you can download from this site.
