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