I constantly have my Android devices docked beside my computer, and I used to think how cool it would be if I could use the computer's mouse and keyboard to control the Android device, just by moving the mouse over the computer screen's border onto the Android device's screen. If I could quickly drag and drop files to the Android device.
I was a user of ShareKM some time ago, but unfortunately, it was abandoned and never worked with Mac computers.
Being a hobby app developer, I investigated ways of doing an app like ShareKM myself. Over the years, I had started several attempts at building such an app, but it wasn't until I had written an app called ReverseTethering that I had enough know-how to make my mouse and keyboard sharing app production-ready and to release it.
And here we are. I just released DeskDock to Google Play yesterday.
- Use your computer's mouse with your Android devices
- Share clipboard between computer and Android devices
- Supports Windows, Linux and macOS
- Works on all Android versions starting from 4.1
- NO rooted device required
- Shortcut for simulating multitouch
- Connect multiple Android devices to one computer
- Flexible arrangement of devices
- Customizable mouse button actions
- Customizable mouse pointer speed
- Ready for Android Nougat
I invest huge parts of my leisure time into app development and support. To get something back in return, I created a PRO version with extra features that costs money.
Pro version comes with these extra features:
- Use your computer's keyboard with your Android devices
- Keyboard sharing supports international keyboards (eg Umlauts)
- Drag and Drop: Urls will be opened automatically, APKs will be installed
- Shortcuts for turning off screen, multitouch, quickly changing volume, screen brightness
Please keep in mind that this is the very first version of the application, so please report bugs you find instead of writing bad Play Store reviews
