Logitech Touch Mouse turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a wireless trackpad and keyboard for your computer, so you can point, click, scroll and type from afar, in any application, on a Mac or PC. It works over Wi-Fi and this could be a great way to control your computer when it?s connected to your TV and you?re lounging on the couch. And to make typing easier, text is displayed on the screen of your iPhone or iPod touch as you type, so you can see what you?re doing without having to continually look up and down. It features multi-touch trackpad with the option for two or three mouse buttons, two-finger scrolling, keyboard with Control, Alt, Command/Windows keys and is available in landscape and portrait modes. The app is available from the App Store for free.
