The integrated remote control, remote mouse and PC remote app are great options to turn your smartphone into a computer mouse. Each was tested with an Android smartphone and a Windows PC.

All three apps were intuitive and the mouse/touchpad functions worked with no noticeable lag. The keyboard features of the integrated remote and remote mouse worked fine, but I wanted to be able to use the keyboard of my smartphone. For anyone needing a remote or wireless mouse, I recommend one of these three apps.

Integrated remote control

Integration Intent Integration Remote works with Windows, Mac, and Linux computers and is available in free and paid versions.

The free version comes with 18 remotes, different themes and 3rd party keyboard support. The paid version adds over 40 premium remotes and the ability to create custom remotes. Remote options include keyboard and mouse. The premium version also supports screen mirroring on PC, Mac and Android devices. It has voice control and integrates with Wear (formerly Android Wear) and Tasker.

There are also versions for TVs, set-top boxes, game consoles and other devices. Unified Remote can also control other connected devices, including Raspberry Pi.
