I joined this forums just to let you know that this app is almost perfect! love it!
I got a mouse app, and a desktop viewer app, but this pretty much outdoes em both, especially since its all in the one app..
wish I could try it out with the keyboard in use too, though..

gonna keep playing with this one for sure

Default Great

The App is great something which i was looking for.
I have a robot with a Laptop running windows 7 fitted to it. The laptop will video the robots surroundings and based on that it will control the robot. I have a small software in windows 7 which does this.
Can you tell me is it possible to see the video in my mobile (android). I also want to control the robot from my mobile . Is it possible?

@subhendusc
Technically it would be possible indeed. But as TouchRemote is not designed for this kind of appliance it will not be handy to control your robot I guess.
Current options are:
1. If you show the camera output on the desktop of the laptop you can watch it on your phone.
2. If you can control your robot via keyboard or mouse input you can use TouchRemote to some extend.

However, tell me more about your robot project! How do you capture the video? How do you control the robot?

Exclamation Update to v1.4.4 BETA

I improved the keyboard considerably:
  • Selectable layout: QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY or JCUKEN (Cyrillic)
  • Special characters and numbers by Tap+Hold
  • Numeric pad with arrow keys, additional symbols and smileys
  • Control keys and function keys
  • Simulation of depressed CTRL, ALT and WIN keys (Tab+Hold)
  • Multi touch support for fast typing

Full changelog

I hope it works fine on your devices!?

Sounds great. I run a dual-boot with Ubuntu Linux & Win 7. Since I'm ALWAYS booted into Linux, I'll try this soon, when I want to "tinker" with Windows.
I run 5 mods on my HTC Inspire 4g (Android 2.3.5 & 4.04s), so it'll be a good way to test your beta.

Exclamation Update to 1.5.24

Graphical issues on devices with triple buffering (HTC One serien, Jelly Bean) should not appear anymore. If you still notice any graphical glitches, let me know.

@raminjpr
TouchRemote is not officially compatible with Tablets because the UI is not adjusted to large displays yet. However, you can download the APK file from the website and install it (enable installation from external sources in settings before).

Exclamation Update to 1.5.26

This version includes scan functionality in local networks and via Bluetooth. Thus in most situations it is not necessary anymore to enter connection data manually. Just push the appropriate scan button (at Settings -> Connection).

As always bug reports and ideas for improvement are most welcome!

Unhappy Samsung Galaxy S II

I can't get it to work on my phone, it never finds any PC running the software, and I've already checked bluethooth is working in both the PCs/Laptops and my smartphone. I hope someone can help me.

I'm pretty sure it has to be the android app because I can connect with a symbian device, which runs perfect, that's how I know it's a great App.

Something to test again.
The new version fits on all screens, regardless of their aspect ratio (e.g. Samsung Galaxy Y Pro, Motorola Defy Pro).
If you find any display issues, let me know.

Default Version 1.6.32

Some users requested an option to use the system keyboard to write on the PC.

Here you go! Enable it in Settings -> Misc.

I already tested with the stock keyboard (Android 2.1 - 4.2) as well as SwiftKey, SlideIT, GO Keyboard and A.I.type.
Swype (still in Beta) unfortunately does not work correctly (spaces missing) which is most probably an issue I cannot fix on my side.

Comments and bug reports are welcome!
