Intel quietly launched a free Android app over the weekend, that lets you use your phone as a keyboard and trackpad for your PC.
The app includes an on-screen keyboard and a trackpad with a scroll bar, and supports both portrait and landscape modes. You can move your finger along the empty space to control your cursor, tap to left-click and tap with two fingers to right-click. To scroll, swipe your finger on the scroll bar.
There are many other remote input apps for phones, including Unified Remote and my aging favorite, Goldworm Remote Control. Intel’s offering works better than the other free apps I’ve tried, with hassle-free setup and quick connectivity.
Whether you just bought a PC-on-a-stick or want to control your laptop from your couch, this is a neat app to have on hand.
