Wow! This looks like an awesome tool!

There's only Éclair and Froyo versions available though, I'm running custom Gingerbread on my N1.

I tried running the Froyo version on my N1 anyway, but it Force Closes as soon as trying to open the app.

Any ETA on a Gingerbread version? I'm quite eager to try your product!

They included the complete libwebcore.so in there effectively including a complete web browser in their so called mouse driver. What up with that?

Hi xda-developers,

Hope you are enjoying flying the web with PadKite, the first multitouch mobile mouse.

Yes, it is a web browser. It includes extended Webkit libraries that makes it heavier. Hopefully these will be able to be submitted into the WebKit build on the near future. The application does not include Flash for the moment and does not run on top of the OS or other applications. As a new concept we are starting small running as a stand alone browser aiming to grow bigger. We are braking the mold on multi-touch interaction and that has to be gradually. As you might have notized it has a lot of potential.

Currently we are making adjustments in order to run in all versions. This requires a lot of effort however it will allow PadKite to run in almost all devices. If you want to run on a Gingerbread version, let us know via our contact form and it will be delivered shortly.

Some users have experienced problems with Android versions of FRG83D and FRG83. We are currently looking into this and we will come up with a solution shortly. If you have problems, running PadKite on your Froyo, please contact us via our contact form too or join our beta program. We need as much information as possible from our users (especially your Logcat). Also, take part in our beta program and you will be the first to get updated on new versions.

Please follow PadKite on Twitter and get up-to-date info on new builds at padkite account.

Thanks for helping us make PadKite even better!

Cheers,

looks great, I'm looking forward to trying it when its available for Gingerbread.. also it would be great to get the adobe flash integration working.. But looks like a great concept, original and useful.

Bumping this, as it is a clear winner as a productivity tool, but so few people seem to have heard about it. I'm a huge fan, and that's based on only having seen the videos, as well as it partially working on a mate's Xperia X8 (the X8 lacks multi-touch, so is unable to take advantage of some of the more powerful features, such as text-selection via second finger-rotation, although as a pointer it works perfectly)!

Hoping they get back to me soon with an offer into the Beta program, as I'm dying to get this app! Also hoping they take it further, and fast, so that it becomes an integral Android feature, rather than just a browser tool.

This is a game-changer, people, so get on board and bring your family and friends!
