I just heard about this and it was free so decided to try it out...but I have no idea how to control my phone when it's on my pc screen. I can click the hard buttosn that it displays on the GUI but anything on the phone screen itself (displayed on the PC), it only has the big blue circle that does nothing when I click except pulse a bit telling me I clicked here.

Also, the description was a bit confusing but when they said use the phone as a second monitor..I can't extent my PC Windows as a dual screen, right? Just meaning I can use both devices simultaneously with a single KB/M set??


edit:
seems like it responds to Key Board but not the Mouse. Also with Keyboard, I can't siwtch back the Window to 1 and 5 out of 5, only between 2 3 4? If I keep pushing Left or Right it finally goes. Int he App Drawer Page...I have no idea how to scroll up and down to choose something else that's not in my PoV
