Remote Mouse is fantastic!

Remote Mouse is great and does exactly what they claimed it would. It was a quick install and I was using it within seconds of completing the installation. When I go to bed, I set my MacBook Pro at the end of my bed on a small end table, in order to watch a movie of some tv before I fall asleep. I had previously had to get up and down out of bed, in order to change the movie, adjust the volume or skip ahead to a different scene. I found Remote Mouse in the App Store and thought I’d give it a try. I LOVE it and I can literally control my whole computer just from my phone. The mouse response is quick and accurate and the features are plentiful! I would highly recommend this app if you need to control your Mac from your phone. Also, using your phone as a trackpad is a nice change, from using the featureless mousepad. I give this app 5 stars!

“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.

Seriously awesome

This is so great. I truly love this app. It works absolutely perfect for my needs. My needs may be a little different than others, but for me I can't tell you how much of a game changer this was. I watch my computer stuff on my main tv and I usually use a wireless mouse to control things. I was tired of getting up to type or struggling to pause quick enough. So I thought about buying a whole wireless keyboard which would just be more mindless consumerism and waste. Instead, in comes this app! Now I can do everything from my phone and, for example, just easily press the space bar to pause most modern media platforms. I will probably buy Pro not because I need it, but because I so much appreciate the developers.
