I want an app that let me control the mouse cursor on my computer using a mouse connected to my Android device without having to touch or drag on the screen to move it, i.e., when I see the mouse cursor move on my Android device, it is also moving on my computer.

If there is nothing like that, can someone recommend me an open source PC remote application so I can try to implement this myself? Because it is very hard to make one from scratch.

  • Like a line-site-remote-control remote control, without the visual feedback that you would get with a full remote desktop application? – MrWhite Oct 3 '16 at 11:38

    I don't think i fully understand what you mean by (line-site-remote-control) but i don't care if the app has the visual feedback or not all i want is that the app reads the movement of the mouse pointer on my mobile and make the same movement to the mouse pointer on the computer. – maged rifaat Oct 3 '16 at 13:05
  • Just to be clear to others - the OP is not seeking something like TeamViewer. In fact, he doesn't even want to see the PC's screen on his Android device – Mawg Oct 29 '17 at 11:06
  • Which makes me wonder how far wireless mouses can transmit and whether the Android is even necessary. – Mawg Oct 29 '17 at 11:06
  • As for an open source application, looks like Synergy fits the bill: github.com/symless There's even an Android version now. – Headcrab May 29 '18 at 6:57

I used to use AndroMouse. You need a client installed on your Windows machine, I don't know if it comes in linux flavour. I thought the code was here, but it doesn't look like to be there.

  • You probably didn't understand me well.I don't need a normal app where you use your mobile as a touch pad ,I need an app that uses the mouse pointer on my mobile (which appears when i connect a mouse to my mobile) to control the mouse pointer on my computer. Thanks for your reply anyway. – maged rifaat Oct 3 '16 at 12:59
  • ohh, no I didn't understand indeed. Sorry about the useless reply – pablosan Oct 4 '16 at 16:49
