    Pity it only works on Windows. I'll stick with Gmote for now.

    Well, I tried it, and it's a shame that the bluetooh connectivity doesn't work.

    The free PPT application does, and it's awesome, wished this could take it further


    Oh well

    Thanks for your comments.
    In short, the current version does not support Bluetooth.

    Here is why:
    Actually the PC server does have the bluetooth implementation which supports broadcom, microsoft Bluetooth stack.

    The current version of the android app targets for android SDK 1.6 which does not support the necessary Bluetooth
    programming interface. So there is no BT support in the current release.

    Definitely will add BT support in next release for android 2.x.

    Thanks for the post,

    I used to use a app like this on the iPod Touch, I believe it was made by logitech. This will be really useful thanks. :)

    I've loaded the bluewave app on my Droid Eris running Android 2.1. I've updated my Java on two laptops - one running Windows 7 64 bit, the other running Windows 7 32 bit.

    The installation of the server says it succeeds but when I try to run the server application W7 immediately tells me that the Server has failed and then starts looking for a solution.

    If I were home and on one of the laptops I could give you the exact error message, but for now, it won't run on either system. I've gone through the setup notes to no avail. Anything obvious I'm doing wrong?

    I'd like this to work it looks like a really nice app. And yes - I have successfully run other mouse software, but they are very simple and this one looks to have functionality that I get with an Airmouse app on my iPod touch and my MacBook Pro. I'd like to extend the functionality to my Windows machines.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
