Using iphone as touchpad

Found funny thing, ability to use iphone 2g/3g as touchpad without need to use appstore

just need to have Idroid installed on it, then navigate to Market, find and install RemoteDroid.

Then go to here download RemoteDroidServer
run java application (java -jar ./RemoteDroidServer.jar)

run RemoteDroid on ur idroid, enter ip of pc and enjoy 😀

    heh, you’re the king of brevity.

    I’ve got idroid on my 3g, and unless they’ve got that installer going now, that’s a demanding little project to get that running. Simple enough, but still..

    Great post chief. (*tips top-hat*)

    U can use SuperRemote from the appstore to do the same trick.

    Great hack. And the irony of using the Android software as backend is not lost on me 🙂
