Benefits
- Turn wired keyboard/mouse/controller into wireless one.
- If you have a phone with built-in physical keyboard or game controller (e.g. Xperia Play, Nvidia Shield, Droid X360, JXD S5110, Yinlips G18A), you don't need to buy keyboard/controller for other devices.
- Screen is not blocked by onscreen keyboard or your finger when using another device as input, so you get better view.
- When the target device cannot connect to keyboard/mouse/controller directly (e.g. no OTG, Firmware unsupported, unrooted), you can use another compatible device as a "bridge".
- Use touchscreen apps on devices which have no physical touchscreen (e.g. Android TV Box, PC).
- Extended customizability by using together with GameKeyboard (e.g. create key/touchscreen mapping, multiple profiles, macro).


IMPORTANT

2. Mouse/Joystick/Touchscreen features need rooted receiver device, please enable "Settings->Receiver Options->Use Root Features" from receiver devices.

Many flaws Cumbersome to press send key and then home or menu. Can't send recent app keys. No way to open notification window or quick settingers. No way to select text by touble tap and drag. No way to use epic 4g physical keyboard to send commands that are otherwise stock on the epic 4g. For example holding shift+arrow to select text. Holding menu+c/x/v to copy/cut/paste text. When the transmitter device goes landscape with the epic 4g keyboard, the trackpad area stays portrait. Very sloppy, poor design for paid app

Does away with USB keyboard and mouse :-) Very useful app and it's much cheaper than buying a keyboard and having it cluttering up the place. Good work guys, nexus 7 2013 and nexus 5.
