  • Hi Michael, I was interested in your blog about using your iphone as a mouse; very cool. I wanted you to know that our little start-up as already created a mouse app for IOS that uses the iphone and it is called “TabiMouse” available for free at the Apple App store. With TabiMouse and the companion Tabitop Desktop App, users can now operate full versions of MS Windows 7 and 8, and MS Office Professional tools on their iPad’s. Our idea was to try to eliminate the need to take many devices with us on the road. So with the iphone mouse app, and Tabitop desktop app, users are free to use any software on their ipad; not just watered down ‘lite’ versions. I am happy to chat with you or your followers on how this works, and I invite you to visit our Website?

    Thanks again for posting your article on using the iPhone as a mouse.
