Remote Mouse 2.561

A light and unobtrusive menulet specially designed to help you use your iOS device a wireless trackpad and keyboard for your Mac
Remote Mouse is a low-key and practical Mac OS X application that enables you to turn your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a wireless remote control for your Mac.

Helps you control your Mac using only an iOS device of your choice

Remote Mouse quietly runs in the background and takes over your Mac when you control it from your iOS device.

From your iOS device you can use a fully simulated trackpad and keyboard, and use powerful remote panels that will make your remote control experience smooth and responsive. As expected, you can use multi-touch gestures on your device and work with it like it was a Magic Trackpad.

Reveal your Mac’s IP address and manually or automatically pair your devices

From Remote Mouse’s status bar menu you have the option to quickly show your Mac’s IP address or generate a QR code that you can scan with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

In addition, Remote Mouse can be configured to automatically start at login and it is capable to automatically detect nearby iOS devices that have Remote Mouse running.

Restrict the access to your Mac with a strong password

By accessing the Options window, you can view your IP Address, generate the QR code and check the “Visitor” connected to your Mac. On top of that, Remote Mouse allows you to password protect your connection in order to prevent unauthorized access.

Remote Mouse offers you the option to change the default path for the Image Viewer folder and you can even disable the auto detection feature and go for the manual connection instead.

Once your Mac and iOS application are configured, you can instantly use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as a wireless remote controller and effortlessly take control over your Mac from the comfort of your couch or bed
