Thread: Touchpad.app - Use your iphone like a laptop mouse for PC

    Default Touchpad.app - Use your iphone like a laptop mouse for PC
    This is truely amazing, found this application while browsing Digg and thought I'd have to share this with the community.

    http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jsherwan/projects/touchpad/

    Simply download and install VNC Server (google for RealVNC Free Edition) and add your wanted Port and Password (Make sure encryption is turned off)

    On iPhone add your PC's IP, VNC Server Port and VNC Server Password and viola

    I believe that VNC Server can also be run on Linux and Macs but the software has to be bought

    Personally tested this app myself and works wonders

    yah. definitely cool

    also... typing wirelessly from my iphone is strangely satisfying.

    if you're on a mac, this is very easy to get up and going. after installing the iphone app, just go to system preferences (on the mac), then "sharing," then turn on "screen sharing." you can also enable a password by clicking on "computer settings."

    lol, believe it or not this app came very handy a couple of days ago. ive have it for a while now and about 4 days i go i broke my keyboard and was left with out a keyboard with no time to drive to frys to buy a new one. so i open vnc on my iphone and since my mouse still worked i used the mouse and when ever i need to type something i used the iphone. it was very helpful and i was able to use it w/o much trouble for about a day and a half.

    this is serioulsy one od the best apps developed so far. im using it to type this. the only thing that would make thos app perfect would be integrating two finger scrolling (like on the macbook)

    thank you thank ypu for this!!!

    this program is awesome! i think you should add stuff specific to mac track pads such as 2 finger drag to scroll or 2 finger tap to right click.

    How was this plagarized (which you're implying), if he didnt use your code. He used VNC which you said was an overhead.....
    Edit: I took a look at your googlecode page, it seems like you started your project two days ago, is that true?
    It just seems someone beat you to the job, and you're upset...
