Remote mouse, keyboard, and media controls. Perfect for controlling Mac or PC from your couch or bed.
App offers remote control for Mac or PC, with a mouse, keyboard, and media controls. Great if you connect your computer to the TV or projector, to control from a sofa or bed.
In 2013, I created this app to control my Mac Mini connected to a big-screen TV in my living room. In 2016 I quit my job and became an indie developer, and now my sole focus is on building my apps. The app has been downloaded more than 2,000,000 times over the years and has favorable reviews.

Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I wanted
I was initially a little skeptical with the price but decided to give it a go.
Without a doubt I can now say it’s worth the price and more.
Has a lot of super useful functions and it’s VERY easy to set up. Not fussing about.
My favorite features are the touch-screen to touch-pad, letting me navigate the screen very easily and naturally using my phones screen. And then on top of that having the ability to mirror my laptop screen onto my phone while using the phone as a touch-pad. This is perfect for when I’m far away from my TV (having my laptop HDMI to the TV, and my phone using the app to control the laptop) and an ad comes up with the tiny little X to close it. With the mirror feature it’s very easy to make those precise mouse movements, tap to click, and off you go.
It also has built in control modes with custom buttons.
I haven’t even explored everything this app can do, but I’m thoroughly impressed. Functional. User friendly. To the point.
Developer Response ,
Great app with active developer
Not only does this app make it just as easy to use your Mac from your phone, but actually manages to streamline a lot of functions with simple taps from a functions menu. And the app even comes with a list of menus for different scenarios such as when watching Netflix, that when selected show a specialised input screen with features tailored to that situation. But best of all is the fact that the developer has been putting out a steady stream of updates since I got the app a year ago, completely transforming the app, and thus still giving me more value for my purchase all his time later.
Great app for Home Theatre MAC
Setting up my MacBook connected to the TV and needed something to drive it. Was using a wireless keyboard and trackpad but that just feels like overkill and takes up half my coffee table. This app does the trick and more, keeps it simple but gives great flexibility in what and how you can drive each app and overall control.
Would take off 0.1 star because the custom icon I’ve set for Automator applications I’ve written isn’t carried across into the app here. But that would be petty.
