RPA Technology today announces Mobile Mouse Pro 2.7.0 for iOS 6, a major update that brings iPhone 5 and iOS 6 support as well as a number of great, new features to their best-selling Utility that transforms any iOS device into a computer remote control, complete with trackpad, keyboard and in-air mouse control. Designed to operate via a local Wi-Fi network, there are no line-of-sight limitations, so users may control their Mac or PC connected to a TV from across the room. The latest update features a larger trackpad for iPhone 5 users, a media interrupt feature, which will pause or mute the media on your computer when you get a phone call, the ability to control your computer volume using the physical volume buttons on your iPhone, and numerous other enhancements.
Mobile Mouse Pro has received widespread critical acclaim and was the number one paid Utility in the App Store, and featured in numerous App Store spotlights, such as "Awesome iOS 4 Apps", "Better Together", "What's Hot", and many others. Mobile Mouse Pro has been written up in top publications such as The New York Times, MacWorld, and CNET.
An ideal app for the remote control of any computer being displayed on a flat screen or projection TV, Mobile Mouse Pro allows the user to view the screen from a comfortable distance, while using their iOS device as a wireless mouse and remote. Using an innovative application notification system, the iOS device is always aware of what applications are running at any time and shows the appropriate keys for that program, providing the user with a single screen for controlling all media and web applications. The app uses the device's built-in accelerometer to translate hand motions into mouse movements on the screen, providing in-air mouse control. It can also operate as a trackpad, allowing the user to control their computer with a single finger. Mobile Mouse is the only app to feature a full fledged application dock that looks and works just like the one in OS X.

Long a favorite of presenters in government, business, and education, Mobile Mouse Pro enables the speaker to control a computer-based slide show or video from anywhere in the room. With the newest update users will be able to automatically have their media paused or muted when the get a call. Imagine you are watching a movie on the couch and your phone rings. Typically you would have to fumble around for your remote so you could pause or mute what you are watching before you can answer your phone. With the media interrupt feature, a notification will display on top of what you are watching alerting you that you have a call and will pause or mute the media while you take the call. Once you end your call, the media will automatically resume.
"Whether you want to control a PowerPoint presentation in front of hundreds of people or just watching Netflix from the comfort of your couch, Mobile Mouse Pro is the simple, universal solution," stated Ramzi Audeh, CEO of RPA Technology. "Our latest update provides support for Apple's latest iPhone and iOS, as well as many great new features and user requests."
Mobile Mouse Pro 2.7.0 for the iPhone is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Utilities category. Mobile Mouse (Remote/Trackpad for the iPad) is also available.
