Luko Remote Turns Your PlayBook into a Keyboard & Mouse for Your PC

 Luko Remote Luko Remote 2

I have been looking for a nice app that lets me control my PC’s keyboard and mouse from my PlayBook over Wi-Fi and Luko Remote seems to fit that description. Luko Remote turns your PlayBook into a mouse, keyboard, and even a file explorer for your XP, Vista, or Windows 7 PC. You run their free server application on your PC and as long as the firewall is open you will be in business.

Main features of Luko Remote include:

Luko Remote 3 Luko Remote 4 

  • file browser: browse your PC filesystem, open files and folders from your tablet, add files/folders to your favorite list (add it to Launcher and Places just by press and hold selected item in the Browser window)
  • keyboard: use virtual keyboard to type on PC, combine keyboard with alt, ctrl, shift to make specific shortcut combination. Use swipe gesture to reveal and hide keyboard.
  • function keys: use buttons that are not available from tablet’s virtual keyboard (media, arrow buttons, alt, ctrl, shift, esc, enter, pageup/down, tab, close application button)
  • virtual touchpad: swipe from the top or press mouse icon button to use your tablet as a mouse with lmb, mmb, rmb and scroll support.

You can pick up Luko Remote in App World for $2.99 here and you will need the desktop server app from here.

Update: Dennis pointed out that there is a free trial available
