    My desktop is connected to my LCD TV. Is their any apps that allows the Droid to connect va bluetooth to my Windows desktop and be usable as a mouse?

    Thanks

    Yea man. I have my laptop connected to my projector to watch hulu and I used to have to get up every time to change it. I downloaded and set up PhoneMyPC and it has a setting to "Control Mouse & Keys" and you can literally use it like a mouse, then click and use the keyboard to type.

    Its a bonus because it is also a remote desktop app, meaning you can also view your computer on your droid screen, and work on it! Crazy. Worth the money man.

    Thanks but I don't have use for a remote desktop at this time. I did install gmote but I don't think it allows me to do the mouse functions on my desktop from the Droid, more of a file streamer.

    Again thanks

    Well you don't need a remote desktop but PhoneMyPC does what you need, so you kinda do. Just try it for 23 hours and refund if you don't like it. Trust me, I was in your position and its amazing. I don't use it for remote desktop really, just for mouse and keys....

    All I'm seeing is multimedia controls to run music/media files from my desktop with gmote. How do you use it as a mouse? As an example I want to open firefox on my desktop surf to MSNBC and read the news on my 42" LCD? I'm sitting in front of the LCD.

    Thanks

    Got it!! Thanks
