Previously we told you about MobiMouse as a cool app that lets you control your PC from your BlackBerry. It works over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB but sadly not your cell connection. This latest version gives you quite a few more shortcuts along with the ability to simulate the arrows on your keyboard. You can also Hibernate, Suspend, Logoff, or lock your PC from your Berry.
Personally I have a wish list for MobiMouse. I would love if it could directly control WinAmp and VLC player which I use all the time. Better yet it would fall back on a cellular connection so that it is always connected even when I just get home. I usually leave Wi-Fi off on my Bold because if it is not connected it is a real battery drain.
New features in this version:
- Arrow Mode – simulate arrow keys on keyboard
- Mute Key is now assignable to apps & shortcuts
- Adjust backlight timeout & brightness
- Hibernate, Suspend, Logoff or Lock PC
- Added Additional Control Keys
- Added MobiMouse to Shortcuts
There is a 7 day free trial after which it is well worth the $9.99 asking price ($7.99 on sale currently). I just hope this app keeps on getting better. Its like a cheap Logitech DiNovo Mini which would run you about $125!
