Intel launched a free Android app over the weekend allowing users to use their phone as a keyboard and trackpad for a PC. The chip maker designed the app for mini PCs that do not include many auxiliaries. Of note, the user can use the app on Windows 7 or 8.
Better than most free apps
The Intel Remote Keyboard app can be found in the Android Play Store. If both Intel Remote and PC are on the same Wi-Fi network, the app will detect the PC automatically. App consists of an on-screen keyboard and a trackpad with a scroll bar that can be accessed in both portrait and landscape mode. There is a space within the app that lets a user control the cursor, tap to left-click and tap with two fingers for a right click. The user would need to swipe finger on the scroll bar to scroll.
There are already many similar apps available on the market such as Unified Remote, Goldworm Remote Control, etc., but according to The Next Web, the app from Intel is better than many available free-apps, providing a “hassle-free setup and quick connectivity.”
