Tablet Remote


Tablet Remote let you control an Android tablet or phone with another Android device.

You can send common input like "Back", "Home", "Menu" or "Search" to the tablet, control its volume and brightness and also type words.

You can navigate in the other device like a DPad and send special command like "Play", "Next" or "Previous" which is very useful when watching a movie.

You can play games that support key input with the gamepad like most Xperia Play compatible games.

I know most virtual gamepad can't replace a real one, but with this gamepad, I'm able to easily play any platform games : it's "super mario" optimized!

Oh, your phone doesn't need to be rooted and it's free, please enjoy!

Instructions :

For the receiver device (the tablet), go to the "setup" section and make sure the two options are check by selecting them and by enable Tablet Remote as a keyboard;

This is useless to me. I need LAN connection, not BlueTooth. I need some app like this to work as gamepad for a set-top-box which has LAN, but no BlueTooth (and no drivers for it, so a dongle is no option). The documentation falsely states that this app can connect via WiFi, to other units in the LAN, in addition to using BlueTooth, but it can't... It's weird though, how some users say that it only works over LAN, while others (like me) have it working only over BlueTooth. (After some thought:) I've come to realize that this is one more of those apps made by devs who think that LAN==WiFi only, forgetting that Ethernet offers the same connectivity even to WiFi units, as long as the Ethernet LAN contains a WiFi access point. So apps intended to connect by WiFi should always make the attempt over Ethernet instead, when WiFi is not available or is disabled or simply failing.

Keyboard Problems Everything looks like it is working fine except the typing. For some reason I can't type capital letters or use any of the shift characters (like: !@#$%^&) on the tablet. This is very important for me because my tablet screen cracked and it has a dead spot so I cant type using tablet keyboard. Please fix, 5 stars if fixed because for me this is a major issue
