Interact Live

View and control your PC from anywhere. While using the feature, keystrokes made on the Client will be sent to the PC, and you can control the PC’s mouse using the devices touch-screen. Interact Live displays the PC’s screen on the Client device, so you do not need to be within view of the PC to use this feature. To access Interact Live, simple run the program, then tap the PC you wish to interact with. Alternately, select it from the Feature list.

Mouse Operation

Interact Live has three modes of mouse input: Touch, Cursor, and Full Cursor mode.

Touch-mode

This is the default mode, and the only mode that does not show a cursor. When you tap the screen, a click is sent to the PC at the location of the tap. Double-tap to double-click, and long-tap to right-click. The program is in Touch mode any time the cursor is not visible.

Single-finger gestures

Gesture Operation

Double-tap the screen Perform a mouse double-click at the location of the double-tap
Long-tap Right-click the mouse at the location of the tap
Drag your finger Pan the view
Tap + Drag* Drag the mouse on the PC

* Tap + Drag means to tap the screen (finger down then immediately up), then immediately put the finger down and begin to move it.

Cursor-mode

This mode is only available to devices with a track-ball. When in this mode, a cursor shows that is controlled with the track ball. Click the mouse where the cursor is by clicking the track ball, or by tapping the screen. When in cursor mode, the same gestures work as they do in touch mode, only they use the location of the cursor rather than the location of your finger. The program is in Cursor mode if the cursor as made visible by moving the track ball. Note that the program returns to touch mode any time you pan or zoom using your finger(s).

Full Cursor-mode

Press the Cursor button to enter this mode. When in this mode, a cursor shows that is controlled by dragging your finger on the screen. Click the mouse where the cursor is by tapping anyplace on the screen or by pressing the Track-ball or D-Pad. When in cursor mode, the same gestures work as they do in touch mode, only they use the location of the cursor rather than the location of your finger. The cursor remains visible until you deliberately exit Full Cursor Mode. Note: to exit Full Cursor-Mode, press the cursor button again.

Mouse Mode

If you have an attached USB or Bluetooth mouse, you can use it as you would if it were attached to the PC. The only difference is right-click. Android does not support more than one mouse button, so you must perform a right-click the same way you would with the touch screen: long-click the mouse button.

Keyboard Operation

Key strokes typed on your phone are sent to your PC and typed into the active window, just as if the keys has been struck on the PC’s keyboard. Note: PhoneMyPC has recently been updated so that the keyboard behaves exactly as it does in other applications. The Shift and Alt keys are ‘sticky,’ meaning you can press and release them, and they will modify the next keystroke. Soft-Key users: press the Keyboard toolbar button to show the keyboard.

Toolbars

PhoneMyPC has up to four configurable toolbars available in this and other features. For details, see Toolbars.
