Tablet Remote Makes Tablet Usage While Hooked Up to a TV Easier

Mar 23, 2012

Like to use tablets hooked up a TV? That micro-HDMI port included in many tablets is very nice to use. Tablet Remote is here to help in situations like that, to use the tablet while not sitting physically close to it. Users download the app on the device they want to control, and on the device they want to use to control the tablet. They then follow the app’s setup instructions to setup its inputs and Bluetooth discovery, then a phone or another tablet can be used to control another Android device. This includes four-way arrows, media control buttons, and the built-in Android buttons. While Android is setup for keyboard control with arrow keys, some apps don’t work as well; including mouse emulation would help out a lot as some apps do need to be directly interacted with via the touch screen.

Still, this app has its uses. Watching videos from a tablet is easier, and for users who just can’t sit close to where there tablet is plugged in to, this helps. I mean, it’s a first-world problem, but it’s still something that may have some uses. The interface is animated in a unique way, that’s almost worth the free download from Google Play on its own.
