The iTunes App Store can be found cluttered with apps which turn iOS devices into remote controls which you could use to give simple instructions to your computer.
There could be nothing greater than operating a computer system, sitting on a couch, without even touching it. We all are well aware of this technology and these kinds of apps are very popular in the app store. Nonetheless, quality apps which are capable of delivering exceptional results are very few.
Today I am going to tell you about one app that works seamlessly and gets the job done. RC TrackPad, from m3me, Inc., converts an iOS’s device’s screen into a track pad that can be used remotely to control over a Mac or PC. Of all the remote control apps I’ve tried this one served my purpose the best.
It works with both Mac and Windows and communicates over your WiFi network. You will be required to install software on your computer, called RC Helper, which you can download from their website very easily. Once you do that you’re ready to go.
When you open the app, it asks for your permission to open a guide on how to do it. In the case of Mac, you can either put your computer’s IP address manually into the device and connect it or let your device identify the Mac and connect it. You will just have to authorize the identity of the device by putting the code into your computer. After finishing all these necessary tasks, you can make use of the app.
It is massively loaded with features and offers so many customization options. There is probably nothing you can’t do with this app, as far as operating a computer from a distance is concerned. You can do possibly everything you would do with a Mac Magic trackpad including all the multi-touch capabilities.
While it’s connected, you will find a tab at the extreme top right corner of the screen which works very impressively as a settings tab and a function switcher at the same time.
It lowers down a tray with 5 options with distinctive icons, the moment you tap on it. Each icon represents a function and these functions are mouse pointer, app launcher, running programs, keyboard and music controllers.
These options help you to launch a new program or see all the running programs on your computer, if you have any. You can go to the settings panel by taping on that tab for twice where you will find all the necessary controllability options.
This app holds the ability to outperform most of the apps of this kind. The Clean UI and the smartly placed tabs enhance the comfort level of the user. This could be a very smart tool for you to get.
I have to say that I hardly saw any issue with this app but unfortunately there is one with a Windows computer. You cannot fast forward or rewind a track from the music controllers. Every attempt changes the orientation of the computer screen.
The bottom line is that you will definitely enjoy this wireless experience very much and get addicted to it. I liked the seamless connectivity and the fact that it comes with a bunch of features. Considering the price, it’s a great deal for an app like this.
Note that there is also a free version of this app; RC Trackpad Lite: Secure Trackpad & Keyboard
