Jahanseb Sherwani, a final year PhD student belonging to the Computer Science Department of the Carnegie Mellon University, has developed a new iPhone application called TouchPad that enables your iPhone to be used as a wireless touchpad. You can now remotely control your laptop or PC’s mouse using your iPhone or iTouch with the TouchPad app.
Sherwani writes – “You can move the mouse around, click, double-click, and even drag (double click but keep it pressed and then move around). Vertical scrolling is even possible, by click-and-dragging on the right edge of the iPhone screen.
You can use it to control videos, show pictures, advance slides in a presentations — whatever a regular TouchPad can do.”
