    blackberry as a mouse?

    Advertisement



    Was browsing mobihand and stumbled onto this app. Thought someone here may be interested. Apparently you can use your blackberry as a mouse for laptop/desktop. Supports bluetooth. I can't test, but thought this may be something interesting.
    Apparently uses trackball or touchscreen.

    Remotely Control a Windows PC

    Wired or Wireless Control

    Move the cursor with the trackball or touch screen

    Control Windows Master Volume

    Escape key to right click

    Works with USB, Bluetooth or WiFi

    Support most Windows Bluetooth Stacks

    Works with Windows 32 & 64 bit systems

    No need to carry extra mouse with laptop

    Use MobiMouse with your Media PC

    Use MobiMouse for PowerPoint Presentations

    Use MobiMouse to type on the keyboard

    Will have to check this out. You can find another version of what I am guessing is the same type of app here.

    I would have to be pretty hard up to actually use something like this other than just for fun. I guess if your mouse died and its all you had it would work pretty well.

    I played with this, its good for using your bb as a remote mouse to control your media player or for presentations. It also works good if you are using your laptop in the dark. Your bb has a light up keyboard so you don't have to squint while typing

    Really? That's one I haven't heard before. You must have very "educated" thumbs (or thumb and forefinger depending on what you type with.)

    Just tried it and it worked for me. I couldn't get it going the first couple of times but it finally installed to PC. Give it another try.

    I'll do that... Is the app full, or just a trial?
