How to use HTC EVO as keyboard and multitouch trackpad for computer
I'm doing it now. This is so sweet.
My EVO is still backordered, but since I have an HTPC, I'm even more jazzed about finally getting my hands on one!
Thanks for the find. This was near the top my list of many things I missed when I left my ill iPhone. Previously I've been using VNC, which was really not themes solution.
So the only problem I have is with gaming. The EVO's keyboard doesn't respond on touch, but on release so you can't really do racing games where you have to hold a button down. Unless someone knows a workaround for this? As far as I know, the backspace button is the only that responds on press, and not release.
i know.... remote droid is sikkkk!!!!!!!!
does it work with mac
don't know. go to remotedroid.net everything is right there
thanks for the tip!!!
Absolutely. A few keys map incorrectly - : becomes > --- very minor nuisance, and a don't care for HTPC control.
Don't necessarily trust the startup window for your Mac's IP if you're internet sharing - double-check in System Preferences.
Thank you for this. This just saved me the money of buying a cheap keyboard for a desktop i'm turning into a server soon.
would this work with a PS3?
i didnt really get in depth with it or read the instructions a nice answer would be great im tired of being bashed on
I don't think so as there is no way to install the server app onto the ps3( at least as far as i know). I also assume that you mean not for otherOS, cause it would work fine on otherOS.
ok simple enough thanks man lol
See if this works out for you PS3 owners out there - some say it does....

Hmm.. Doesn't work for me it connects, and the server is running but isn't controlling the mouse or keyboard at all. Damnit!
I've got this installed for awhile and played with it. The mouse work well, but it looks like it doesn't work with the swype keyboard. =(
I love this! While I will not try to write a book or play a game with it...it sure makes watchin netflix from bed a lot easier.
Oh this is nice. I travel a lot and often have my laptop hooked up to hotel TVs situated across the room, too far for my VGA or HDMI cable to reach. This'll let me use my EVO as a remote instead of using my wireless mouse and having to point it at things (by rolling it on the bed) that have keyboard short cuts.
running nicely on Ubuntu. Had to find my real ip address though because the pone the app told me was wrong
i cant seem to get it to work... i have followed tutorial several times. any ideas on what i can try?
What OS are you on?
Do you know how to find your computer's IP address?
Are you successfully connected to your wifi router?
Let's start there.
yes i have correct ip
yes both devices are connected to same wifi signal/router
im so lost
I'm finding that MultiRemote is less choppy than RemoteDroid, so I stopped using RemoteDroid. I also like that on your computer, MultiRemote hides in the tray instead of sitting in the taskbar. But despite all these nice things about MultiRemote, they misspelled the name of their own app - it says MutliRemote when you add it to your home screen.
Neither app is as good as AirMouse was on my iPhone 3g. Shake-for-keyboard was genius, and somehow the mouse was as smooth as the real thing. Gotta keep trying more apps..
edit-Wait... Multiremote doesn't have a keyboard.
Helped me. The app on the pc didnt give me the right ip address to check in. run through those steps
