Almost Perfect Only thing that could make this app better would be if you included a "double-tap to drag" option. Everything else is just absolutely perfect. Loving it, thank you!

Great app, almost no latency! Would it be possible for you to integrate android wear support? It would be awesome to use my watch as a touchpad!

Great concept and design Works great, barely any lag. Now I can control my xbmc box very easily without the need of external keyboard. Just one suggestion, ability "name" the connections. IPs done can be confusing, especially on dhcp.Thanks!!
