To do this, I will use “Wireless Remote Mouse” app for iPad. This iPad app lets you convert your iPad to PC mouse and keyboard. The app totally works wirelessly on a Wi-Fi network, so you can only work till you are in the Wi-Fi range. Actually the app takes the help of your internet IP and port. The IP address and port number of PC would be entered in iPad app for it to work.

I really liked the app interface in which the keyboard and mouse are same as of the PC. The mouse has right, left, and center button. The keyboard in the app looks same as of original PC keyboard with all the controls of a basic keyboard.

Using this app, you can have a realistic experience of using an actual PC keyboard and mouse. Pretty cool, eh?
