That’s it! Now you can provide input to your computer from your mobile device!
There are many similar apps in the market. Why did Intel develop their own?
While there are many remote keyboard/mouse applications in the market, Intel Remote Keyboard provides a seamless experience for users across mobile platforms (Android* and iOS*) and host computer operating systems (Windows* and Linux*) of no cost to the user (free to download, zero ads).
