Use smartphone as keyboard/mouse

Sat Nov 10, 2018 1:57 pm

I have a raspberry pi 3 connected to a monitor. It it possible to use my android phone as a keyboard and/or mouse using bluetooth? Is there an app that can easily do this?

Have a look at Remote Pi https://remotepi.io as most terminal emulation or remote control programs takes the screen as well as the keyboard and mouse.

Let us know how you get on :D
