Virus Free No Ads
Paid user can email email@example.com to obtain a Windows Receiver for free.
- Turn wired keyboard/mouse/controller into wireless one.
- If you have a phone with built-in physical keyboard or game controller (e.g. Xperia Play, Nvidia Shield, Droid X360, JXD S5110, Yinlips G18A), you don't need to buy keyboard/controller for other devices.
- Screen is not blocked by onscreen keyboard or your finger when using another device as input, so you get better view.
- When the target device cannot connect to keyboard/mouse/controller directly (e.g. no OTG, Firmware unsupported, unrooted), you can use another compatible device as a "bridge".
- Use touchscreen apps on devices which have no physical touchscreen (e.g. Android TV Box, PC).
- Extended customizability by using together with GameKeyboard (e.g. create key/touchscreen mapping, multiple profiles, macro).
