Mobile Mouse is the server software to accompany the Mobile Mouse App for the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPod Touch, and iPad
Instantly transform your mobile device into motion based mouse, trackpad, and wireless remote for your computer! Sit back and surf the web, browse your photo library or control your music player from the comfort of your couch. Our app uses the built-in accelerometer to translate your hand motions into mouse movements on your screen. It can also operate as a trackpad, allowing you to control your computer with a single finger. Suddenly your iPhone, iPod, and iPad have become an essential part of any home theater and a presenter's best friend. Using an innovative application notification system, your iOS device will always know what applications are running at any time and show the appropriate keys for that program, providing you with a single screen for controlling ALL your media and web applications, such as iTunes, Spotify, VLC, PLEX, Safari, Chrome, PowerPoint, Keynote, and many more!
** IMPORTANT ** To use this software, you must also download one of the paid or free Mobile Mouse apps from the App Store for your iPhone/iPod or iPad.

Ratings and Reviews
I wish this option exist
I downloaded the app lately, and purchased the peer-to-peer connection, which is much stabled and fast option than the normal network connection. The presentation option with powerpoint is a pleasant experience, though the slides display never showed in my phone or apple watch (but not a big deal for me)
I just wish that the hotkeys can open files as well and not only apps… Like if I have a presentation and assign a hotkey to open this presentation once i click it and instantly opens in presentation mode, this would be awesome… Appreciate if the developers can look into that, as this would be a really cool feature, especially if someone has several presentations to show in the same meeting, with each presntation popping once you click the assigned hotkey
BEWARE: The “Pencil Stylus" MobleMouse supports is NOT the Apple Pencil stylus!
Caveat emptor. I was really impressed when I discovered Mobile Mouse suports pressure-sensitive styluses, including "Pencil Stylus." I shouldn’t have been. Upon asking Tech Support for help, I was informed, “… we don’t currently support the Apple Pencil yet…. The Pencil we support is made by another company...so we need to clarify that in an update.”
Yes, MobleMouse, you DO need "to clarify.” If for no other reason, the deception might appear to some as intentional. A Mac app from the Mac App store which supports Pencil Stylus (captial “S”) might leave one with the impression that it supports the Pencil stylus (lower case “S”). And if this, then what else?
Although it is useless to me (at least, until Apple Pencil — the Pencil stylus made by APPLE INC. of Cupertino, California —is supported), I still give two stars based on what little I learned of the App during the setup process. Connectivity was excellent—was able to connect via WiFi, Bluetooth, and USB; the general layout was user-friendly, efficient, and professional; the although an unwelcome message, their Tech Support got back to me within two hours. MobleMouse apparently does a lot of things, and appears to do them well—but using it as a Wacom substitute is only good if your iPad Pro comes with Pencil Stylus rather than a Pencil stylus.
Developer Response ,
We originally only supported another stylus called Pencil, but have since added support for the Apple Pencil as well. We emailed users who expressed interest in the Apple Pencil to let them know about the update, sorry if you were not notified. Please consider updating your review so users are not misled. Thanks
Wonderful! Must have for Apple users.
I am so glad I discovered this app. It is just as great as the reviews describe it to be. I have the free version and it does everything I need it to do. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the fact that you cannot control volume through the app - but, you can use the mouse to click and drag the volume adjuster (when you are watching Netflix, for example, you can mouse-over the speaker icon and drag and drop it to the level your prefer). But, you cannot use the volume control buttons on the side of your phone for easier volume adjustment. Bottom line is, the app is wonderful. You should most definitiely give it a try!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
