SmartMouse is a free multiplatform app that lets you remotely access computers with mobile device (Android or iPhone) via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection. It’s not just only limited to connect multiple computers. It simply turns your mobile device into a flash drive, a file transfer device, PC documents record viewer, and a multi-touch pad. Thus, you can transfer files from PC to mobile (and vice-versa), can view and open recent documents of PC, use your mobile as a remote presentation pen etc. It is quite helpful if you don’t want to keep sitting on your desktop chair to browse Internet or watch movie and control PC. Simply use SmartMouse and play movies while lying on your sofa or bed, browse Internet and much more.
Other than these important functions, it also provides multiple buttons on your Android screen to quickly use simple options. Such as you can shutdown your computer, can activate sleep mode, close active windows, navigate to top or bottom of a web page, mute volume, minimize a window etc. Hence it is a feature rich app and is a bit different from other software to remotely access PC. Moreover, it is really easy to use and users will find no trouble to work with it.
Screenshot above shows an example about how you can access your PC with SmartMouse. There are multiple buttons available as mentioned above which you can use accordingly.
