Default Use your DInc as a wireless mouse and keyboard!

Sorry if this is a repost but i was looking for a app to use my DInc as a wirless mouse and keyboard for my home theater and found a app Cale RemoteDroid. It works like a charm. Just passing the word along.

If only that would work with the PS3, which is what I really want. Not sure why the HID bluetooth profile hasn't been implemented in Android yet.

check out Gmote as well, lets you play music fast and simple from your pc, and also stream that music on your phone from your pc. Remote droid has a better mouse capability but gmote is good as well for different reasons.

This is sweet. Great find.

I have a media computer that I use to watch movies and shows on my TV. I've been using a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, but this is way better.

I started to use UnifiedRemote a lot and I really like it. On top of being a mouse and keyboard it can also control power point and access and explorer. Also you can switch between task and control the power such as shut down and restart. Check it out.

I just thanked you using the mouse part of it but the keyboard won't work. Any ideas?

Used this on my girlfriends computer when she was talking to her sister on a web cam. Spooked them both out needless to say

i like unifiedremote to gmote, it's explorer option better and it opens files with system defaults where as gmote plays them using it's native app.
