I’ve used Airdroid for years to use my desktop or laptop to control my phone. I find the keyboard and mouse much easier than fumbling with my thumbs when I’m at a desk. Airdroid can be a hassle and a possible security concern though. That’s why when I saw a review of the IOGear KeyShair it caught my eye.
The KeyShair looks like a flashdrive, but it acts like a KVM (a device that lets you use one keyboard, mouse, and video to control multiple computers). You plug the small device into a USB port, run the software, pair the bluetooth with your phone and you can then toggle between your keyboard and mouse controlling your smartphone or your computer. In fact it can flip between four devices if need be. So instead of fumbling with your phone to reply to a text, you’d look over at your phone screen, press a hot-key on your computer and start controlling the phone with your mouse and smoothly enter your reply text at your keyboard.
Maybe I’m just showing my age, but if you can fly on the computer and are derailed switching to the mobile device constantly, check out the IOGear KeyShair microsite and see if this might be a solution you appreciate as well.
