Mobile Mouse Server on Windows
Setting up Mobile Mouse Server is simpler than it looks

These days we spend less and less time computing at our desks. The problem is, mice and keyboards are usually designed for use in a permanent location, and become awkward to use when you find yourself cradling them on the sofa or while sat on the train.

Things get worse when you decide to hook up your computer to your big-screen TV for whatever reason. There you are, scrabbling about on the floor when you’d rather be curled up on the sofa. You could buy one a dedicated remote for your computer, or you could press your trusty smartphone or tablet into service instead.

Mobile Mouse allows you to turn your iPhone, iPad or Android mobile into a fully functioning wireless mouse, touchpad and remote for your computer, enabling you to tuck the computer out of the way while you navigate using your mobile device’s touchscreen. All you need to do is ensure both are on the same wi-fi network.

First, you need to install and set up the free server software on your computer – download and appropriate package from above, fire it up, click Apply and you’re ready to go. Just install the appropriate app for your iPhone/iPod touch, iPad or Android mobile, and you can gain control of your PC from the other side of the room.

It’s all very simple, but there’s plenty of advanced functionality too for inveterate tinkerers, giving you complete control over how the various remote functions work in conjunction with the apps on your computer. All of this is handled by this server tool, freeing up your mobile for what it does best, giving you wireless access to your computer.

There are two mobile apps available: a free Lite version (iPhone and Android only) for is plagued with nags, and gives you basic mouse/touchpad and keyboard functionality; upgrade to the Pro version and you get all sorts of extra features, including full web and media remote control as well as an application launcher.

Verdict:

If you can handle the nag screens, then the Lite version offers a decent alternative to your mouse and keyboard, but if you want the full gamut of features, check out the Pro version instead.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
