What you can do:
The application is basically a virtual trackpad and keyboard. It can be used in portrait or landscape mode. In portrait mode, the screen is divided into the trackpad area at the top and at the bottom of the keyboard. Intel keyboard looks like any Android keyboard, but also has a Windows button a Esc button and four arrow keys.
Things that should have been there:
There could be some improved to optimize the installation controls. First, there is a “continuous movement” which means you have to touch the scroll buttons repeatedly to scroll to a great distance. Secondly there is no “direct volume control”, as it is always advisable to adjust the volume by using a dedicated button to use the mouse. We strongly hope that these features will be added in future updates.
