Tired of having a keyboard and mouse laying around in your living room? Get rid of that lousy setup with TouchPad! Use your iPhone, iPad or your iPod touch to remotely control your computer through WiFi (wireless network). With TouchPad's intuitive use, you'll feel right at home if you have already used a track pad on a MacBook. It's almost like having a micro laptop in your hands!
Moreover, if you have a Mac or use Linux, no additional software is required on your computer. TouchPad connects through Screen Sharing, which is part of OS X and most Linux distributions. Windows users can download a free VNC server such as TightVNC or UltraVNC, which are highly recommend.
You can also select a darker theme for when you use TouchPad in a low light environment.
TouchPad is the ideal companion for your computer (such as a Mac Mini) and an HDTV configuration!
