Scenario: Watching Netflix on my TV through my P.C.
Problem: Conveniently controlling the P.C. from across the room without buying aftermarket media remotes and sensors.
Solution: Get MobiMouse for my BlackBerry Torch!
Kind of cheesy introduction I know but it’s a real life solution. In my master bedroom the tv is directly above my desk so it’s convenient enough to connect it to my P.C. for Netflix use, but when laying in bed watching a television series getting up every time I need to change episodes or adjust the volume is a huge pain. MobiMouse is the perfect solution for this scenario and many other scenarios I’m sure.
MobiMouse is not just a simple remote control app either they have actually done a lot with it(If you had it after it first came out but haven’t tried it in a while I suggest you check it out again). One of my favorite features is the ability to customize a ton of shortcuts to make it even easier to personalize your remote control experience.
