Ratings and Reviews
My laser mouse died after falling off my desk and I needed a mouse in a hurry- came to the App Store and unfortunately tried another app before this one that failed as often as it worked, like every other time. Tried this one and it is perfect- and if you buy the pro version you can even program custom hot keys which is very handy. I really like this app and even though I replaced my mouse I still use this app a lot, having a track pad is pretty handy. Nice app especially after trying the other one which was completely frustrating- this hasn’t gliched yet!
“Connection failed” issue
This app works great most of the time, however while I am using the app, I tend to lock my device in between using the app (as you would put down a TV remote when you’ve found a program to watch) rendering me unable to reconnect unless I delete the app on both devices and reinstall it. This usually is the only way to get it to work again. Manually reconnecting the devices just results in a connection failure message. This is why I haven’t bought the Pro version, to avoid complications of restoring purchases every time I have to reinstall the app just to connect again. When it is connected however, it works well. The connection problems are the only issue I’ve faced so far. Thanks for the app, it’s saved a lot of getting up and walking to the laptop to change anything on it. Oh and the iPad app not having the keypad accessible is also quite a restriction, but even on the iPad app I face this “connection failed” issue, so it’s not just my devices.
Need version prior last update
Since the upgrade and move of the switch panel and mouse to the bottom of the screen I am having more problems to move the mouse from my phone as the bottom half of the screen now has the panel and the buttons and that requires to slide my finger on the upper screen half which is quickly tiring my whole hand and arm. Also now the option to switch off is way to the right of the switch panel which makes is hard to hold the phone, slide the panel and to push the button using my left hand only.
For that reason I would like to switch to the older version with the switch panel and mouse at the top of the screen which eases up the use for me and makes the app more accessible.
