AndroMouse 8.0



Thank you for downloading AndroMouse 8.0. This is the place where you learn how to setup AndroMouse, download AndroMouse Server, ask questions and help others.
Some of the screenshots I used for version 8.0 are from previous version, please note that the functionality is still the same even if says older version in the screenshots.

AndroMouse lets you convert your Android smartphone into a wireless mouse, keyboard, media remote, file browser and much more. Communication with your computer can be made using your WiFi network or using Bluetooth. AndroMouse features most mouse functionalities including click, double-click, drag and drop, scroll and right-click. You can use your phone’s on-screen keyboard as the wireless keyboard. In addition to wireless mouse and keyboard, AndroMouse also provides tons of extra features. Most popular features include speak-to-type and file-browser. Relax on your couch and search Google or Youtube with your voice. Compose an email with your voice instead of using your physical keyboard!! Browse your computer files on your phone.

Here is a sneak peek of what’s new in all new AndroMouse 8.0.

What has changed since earlier versions?
Basically everything! I published the first version of AndroMouse in 2011 – since then I had been updating/fixing few things here and there without changing much of the core functionalities. To make the application and the server much more robust and to boost performance, I rewrote them again from scratch. Although everything underneath the application is brand new, the basic motivation of my hard work remains unchanged – to make the best performing wireless mouse and keyboard app. If you are familiar with earlier versions of AndroMouse, it should be fairly simple to get started.

Getting Started

Connecting to the AndroMouse Server

If you have not downloaded AndroMouse in your phone yet, download it from the Play Store  – AndroMouse Free     AndroMouse – No Ads

To use AndroMouse, you will need to download the AndroMouse Server and run it on the computer that you want to wirelessly control. AndroMouse server runs on Windows, Mac or Linux and requires no further installation. Please download AndroMouse Server from the link below:

Download AndroMouse Server:

Please make sure that your app version and server version matches – current version is AndroMouse 6.3 (both app and the server).

The downloaded zip file contains a readme text file and AndroMouse Server.jar file. The AndroMouse Server.jar file is a light-weight java executable file, to run it please make sure that you have Java runtime installed on your computer. Most computers already come with Java runtime but if yours didn’t – just download it from the java website and install it. Link to instructions on how to check if you have java installed on your computer is provided below:
How to check if you have Java installed

When you have made sure that Java runtime is installed, double click on the AndroMouse Server.jar file that you have just extracted and just like that the AndroMouse Server is running. Now we can use AndroMouse app on your phone to make a connection.

Linux users – When trying to run the server you might get an error message with something like ‘.. the file is not marked as executable’. To fix this, right-click on the file and click on properties and on Permissions tab – make sure to check box ‘Allow executing file as program’ is selected.
Mac Users – When trying to run the server for the first time you might get a message saying ‘the file cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer’. In that case, right-click on the server file and click on open.
Windows Users – You might get a Windows security alert saying something like ‘Windows Firewall has blocked some features..’. You must select ‘Allow Access’ to use AndroMouse. If you are still having issues connecting to the server, your AntiVirus software might be blocking connections – please open Java SE binary for incoming and outgoing connections on your Firewall settings.

You will see the following screen when you successfully start the AndroMouse server. Now all you have to do is let it run and use your AndroMouse app in your phone to setup the connection.

Connecting Using WiFi

Note – Screenshots provided below are from the ad-free version.


AndroMouse home – To start a connection click on the new icon


AndroMouse – new connection screen

Click on the ‘new’ icon located on the title bar of the application. You will see the following screen that will let you choose either WiFi or Bluetooth (Bluetooth is only available on Windows for the time being). Select Wifi.

Note – Please make sure that the computer and the Android device are connected to same the wifi network or hotspot.

AndroMouse will automatically start detecting AndroMouse Server that is running on your computer connected to your wifi network, once found it will provide the server details and give you the option to start the connection. However, for some reason, if the app didn’t detect the server – you also have the option to enter the Server’s IP address manually to make the connection.


AndroMouse automatically detects the Server


When server is found, select Connect to begin

Connecting Using Bluetooth

Note – Please make sure that your phone is paired with the computer and Bluetooth is turned on.

From the ‘New Connection’ screen – select Bluetooth. You will see a list of Bluetooth devices paired with your phone under ‘Paired Devices’. Select your computer to make the connection.









Connecting with Bluetooth


Green line under title indicates connected state

After successful connection – you will notice that the thin horizontal bar below title bar turns green.

Note – the color of the thin horizontal bar beneath the title bar indicates connection status – red for disconnected and green for connected. You will also feel a short vibration when your active connection gets disconnected.

Using Wireless Mouse

Move your single finger around the touchpad area as you would move a physical mouse over a mousepad. You can tap on the touchpad to send a click signal or use the mouse buttons below the touchpad to send respective click signals to your computer. Here is the list of various ways you can send signals using the touchpad, scroll bar and the mouse buttons.

Click Tap on touchpad with single finger or left click button

  1. So, I’m gunna be honest with you…. I would not only be more than happy to download and use this app but with all the functionality that this app comes with, I’d even pay 3, 4, even 5 times what you’re charging for the pro version….

    But the fact that this is only for controlling laptops/desktops and not other mobile devices makes me more disappointed than every Alan Rickman character combined… Like, this answered the question “What would happen if the Last Season of Lost came out of the closet to his Super religious parents, on a Sunday, while in Church , in the middle of the pastors sermon at the Westboro Baptist Church.”

  2. Hi,

    Not so long ago I made a request to post an article on

    As per the previous inquiry, we would love to send you a submission for you to review. You would have complete editorial control over the final article.

    If this is something that you would be willing to move forward with, we are delighted to say that as a token of thanks we are able to pay an annual payment via PayPal.

    We hope to send a draft over to you soon. Please let me know if you are interested.

    Error: Could not find or load main class AndroMouse Server.jar
    Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: AndroMouse Server.jar

    What’s wrong?

  4. Hej. I was about to use my Android tablet as keyboard to my Android TV box but…wheres the server APK for Android ?

  5. So I just finished using andromouse 8 and I only ran it for a minute because a couple points
    -Unless you have a huge android phone like a Stylo or something, its not very nice to use, still fun though.
    -I had the issue where I could only use the far left 5 inches of my main screen, I have a dual monitor set up in my living room so that’s why I looked into this, it wouldn’t let me go on the second monitor at all. I noticed others with this issue are also running dual screen so I’ll assume this is meant more for the home theater type thing.

  6. Android APP AndroMouse v7.0 – AndroMouse Server v8.0 –
    You guys say, that the app version, and server version has to be the same – OK
    In your site only have AndroMouse Server v2.3 – v3 -v4 -v5 -v6 and v8 – there is no AndroMouse Server v7.0.
    So where is the logic ? no logic! App dont work,

  7. I installed 6.3 yesterday and it seemed to work great, so I paid for the Android version on Google Play. Today AndroMouse cuts out after a few seconds (maybe 10) and I have to keep reconnecting. Has anyone else solved this issue? I’m running on Linux (Elementary OS – which is a Ubuntu base) and Android 7.

  8. Keyboard and voice input work in English, but don’t work in Japanese.
    Maybe same problem, as Mahbub Alam mentioned. I hope it will be fixed.

  9. I was extremely pleased to find this web site. I want to to thank you for
    ones time due to this wonderful read!! I definitely loved every little bit of it and i also have you book-marked
    to see new information on your web site.

    • Not working on Fedora Linux. The server does not have any buttons to configure/create a new connection, just information stating that Bluetooth in unavailable. No way to connect on a WiFi/hotspot connection as well.

  10. Im looking for same kind of application with a small variation, is that I want to run the server on my Android AOSP tv (in standard you are supporting windows/mac/linux, want to have it for Android as well).

    Please let me know is it possible.

  11. hi..
    thanks alot for your goodapp
    just a question that, how can i type persian language in keyboard app. thanks for answering.

  12. I’m a Chinese.I like the mouse very much. But something about the keyboard is not good enough. it doesn’t serve well when we use the Chinese form. Such as the APP. Called xunfei 讯飞输入法。The Chinese characters can’t go to the
    computer screen directly., But when we input the English words,It is much easier.

  13. This looks really cool. I didn’t even know about AndroMouse till now. But I really must try this on my computer to see how efficient it can be. Thanks for sharing this step-by-step guide with us!

  14. Trying version Andromouse 6.3 and I like it but…

    1) I need to use it on 3 servers. I see that I can look for previously connected, but IP’s can change.
    Could you just do a search on connecting each time an show a list of resolved computer names so I can choose? Of course, if only one server is active you may as well go straight to it.

    2) Could you start the server minimized or have it minimize in “x” seconds? Maybe a setting in the settings menu for this.

  15. Hello,

    BlueStacks is one of the most popular Android Emulator and gained wide acceptance among avid gamers like me. I am on BlueStacks for last 3 years and there isn’t any complaint during my smoother gaming experience. I m lovin’ it.


  16. When setting up a custom keyboard is it possible to setup the ALT key, so that if I am using a Wacom pen, I can hold the ALT button to get the pen to act differently? On my computer keyboard, while hold ALT and touch the Wacom pen, it simulates a middle mouse button. It seems to me that the custom keyboard only registers the value of the key up event rather than tracking the time it is depressed. Thoughts?

  17. I installed 6.3 yesterday and it seemed to work great, so I paid for the Android version on Google Play. Today AndroMouse cuts out after a few seconds (maybe 10) and I have to keep reconnecting. Has anyone else solved this issue? I’m running on Linux (Elementary OS – which is a Ubuntu base) and Android 7.

  18. Hi Perfect app, I just tested it with Raspberry 3B, running on Raspbian 9 stretch, I connected w/o problems through WiFi, but I cannot connect using BT. Do You have any advice?

  19. Is there a Debian or Ubuntu friendly download? I can never get tar jar or whatever to work so I don’t even bother.
    Someone put this in the Ubuntu Software site.

  20. Very nice app..
    Actually I need only keyboard especially single key : a or b or F1 key to be used in different smartphone each. Could you please make it for me, I will pay accordingly. If possible completed with partial screen remote desktop let say for area (0, 100) screen definable.

    Thank you so much…

  21. Hello.
    I can move the pointer in the desktop but its showed as static in screen, I mean, when I move by the smartphone I can see how is resalting all the positions where my pointer is but the pointer icon still where I leave it with the mouse.
    I hope explained enough.
    Please your support. Regards.

  22. Great app.
    Is there a way to run the server app as a service? I’d like to have this is the primary interface and the server app occasionally drops.

    Also, is it possible to have a custom keyboard automatically load as a default keyboard.

    Lastly, would like to have a sensitivity setting for the custom track pad object when used in a custom keyboard.

  23. Hello Suraj, Nice work. I’m trying to run the server on Ubuntu 16.04, but not able to get the device name : . I’ve already paired my phone with laptop. Also from the mobile app, using bluetooth , it’s not able to search for the server. Could you help ? Many thanks !

  24. How can i use other language like bengali ? if prediction is on this system dosen’t work cause, it just send a charecter insted of sending word. Please make it compatible with utf-8 font & word stream. Thankyou in advance.

  25. Don’t know if this is the best place to report bugs, but the mouse wont move from the middle line of a 2 monitor setup?

  26. porque no se puede usar de ANDROID A ANDROID no veo ningun programa que se pueda, yo por ejemplo me gustaria escribir desde mi movil a mi E-reader, y los dos sistemas son android, has pensado alguna vez hacerlo compatible de algun modo, en verdad no veo ningun programa asi.

  29. andromouse server version 6.3 on the pc, but andromouse app version 6.4 on phone, i cant connect them. how to fix this, please

  30. Hi, I cannot get this to work. It looks like like an awesome app and would like to use it. I have the app on my phone and my phone is connected to bluetooth, sent one music file to verify that. I downloaded server and am able to open jar file, i have java 8 run time installed and opening jar file with it. Server is running and shows no bluetooth connection. If i go to new connection on phone app it doesn’t show my phone connected to my computer through bluetooth. I don’t want to use wifi because I use a hotspot off my phone as my only source of internet. Please advise to help me get this working. Will buy app if it works as good as expected. Thanks and please advise!

  31. With andromouse 6.4 the keyboard stopped working. Sometimes i can write some letters but never a whole word. Can i download andromouse 6.3 somewhere?
    Or will there be an updated server for 6.4 which maybe solves the Problem?
    Thx for your help

    • Ok, im sorry. Its not 6.4, i tried 6.3, wich always worked perfektly and i got the same Problem. You can delete my Comment but it would be great if i heared from you if you got any idea what could cause the Problem. Thx

      • Some more Infos: speak to type works. the problem with the keyboard is the same on wifi and bluetooth. hope youll find a solution i really liked your app and used it for years now.

      • found the solution.
        You have to deactivate the predictive text option in the keyboard settings of the android device.
        maybe you could put this in the faqs or sth.
        Strange thing is, it used to work with the predictive text option enabled.
        dont know what happened.

  32. Hello
    I can’t connect my lenovo android tab and my pc windows 10.

    Of course the app is open on the pc.
    Too disapointed, I just lost one hour for nothing…

  33. Everything else works, i think it a fantastic app. But how do you get the keyboard to work?
    Everything works on the keyboard except for the letters it self.

  34. Have had for a long time paid version and has worked great until recently. Had it on sprint lg g4. Worked great then i got a g5 and was working great for a while but recently the keyboard wont work while i have mouse function.

  35. Great App

  37. Hi there. I recently found your app and it worked fine for some time. However, after using some time, I’ve been facing an issue – my app frequently disconnects from the server. Sometimes the disconnection happens within a minute or so. I’m using Ubuntu 16.04 and latest update on android. Can I get some help on this? Also, a suggestion. a UI implementation of quick connect from previous connections on single click would be good. The user is anyway want to connect to recent connection if it selects it.

    • Hello,

      Currently, custom remotes are not saved, I am working on an update that will allow you to save custom remotes.

      • I will pay for the ad free version when custom remotes can be transferred from free app to ad free version. This missing function should receive high priority since everything else seems to work on both versions. I do not want to start over remaking all my remotes.

      • I will pay for the ad free version when custom remotes can be transferred from free app to ad free version. This missing function should receive high priority since everything else seems to work on both versions. I do not want to start over remaking all my remotes. I would have been very disappointed if I found this out after the refund period. You need to warn people of the lack of export/inport custom remote function. It obviously saves remotes so why not export/import?

      • Hi. It will work for the opposite side? I want to control the android mouse from my linux pc. I have a Samsung Dex and i want to swap just my HDMI port of my monitor (to the dex one) and use an application to control the Samsung Dex keyboard and mouse from my pc keyboard and mouse.

        It will be possible?

  39. Hello, thanks for app. On Xubuntu 16.04.2 working good. Will be good add support czech diacritic like ěščřžýáíéúů, please. Michal Janoušek

  40. I really like your app and I have tested it on various computers and it works great. But now I have a problem with setup. I have internet via cable which goes into the Wi-Fi router and I have wireless internet in the flat. But I also have one desktop computer WITHOUT the WiFi card which is connected to the Wi-Fi router by an Ethernet cable. It serves as my media server. It runs Windows 10. I can run your Andromouse.jar on it but it is not seen by the smartphone app (because it looks for Wi-Fi, not LAN). How can I use your virtual mouse in such configuration? Any suggestions?

  41. Hello sir
    I have downloaded the server files of andromouse so many times but i can’t run server. The properties of downloaded​ file is not appropriate. It opens itself in winRar. And doesn’t show any window. Please guide me how I can run server.

  42. I cannot find a way to make a custom action for the “Tab” keystroke. Is this possible?
    Other buttons like “Ctl”, “Shift”, and “Command” exist already.

  43. Hello,
    I am using AndroMouse 6.3 and it works great. But recently I tried to create a hotspot in my phone and connected my linux device to that which worked fine but AndroMouse android app reported that it cant find any wifi network. Is there a workaround or would you be fixing this in a future update?

      • Could that hotspot also be a BT hotspot, as this would eliminate the need for WiFi connection completelly if BT is aivable?

  44. This is good app., But there are two problems. Keyboard in russian layout doesn’t work. I want to create my own mouse layout in custom remote and I wanna to use landscape orientation, but I can’t.

  45. Hello
    the AndroMouse client available on Google Play is v6.4, updated on March 10, 2017.
    Can we use it with AndroMouse server v6.3?
    Keep up with the good work!
    Cheers from Milan, Italy

  46. I just instaledl ver 6.3 but found no response when writing Chinese character.
    My PC is running Win7 64-bits and Smartphone is LG G4 on Android 5.1

  47. Most of the functionality works fine. But…

    The mouse pointer on both the mouse tab as a touch pad on a custom remote only moves horizontally. It sticks to the top of my screen. How can I solve this?

  48. “Drag & Drop” functionality does not work. Your website says: “Tap and hold on touchpad for two seconds” & then we are instructed to drag. But when I tap & hold, it does not do anything. I cannot select an item to drag. I am using this on Windows 8.1 with latest updates. Can you please investigate this?

  49. Great app. I am using it on a OnePlus3 and Ubuntu.

    I would really appreciate a way to make a custom remote the default. I find that I am having to reselect the custom remote every time I come back to the app.

  50. I use Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS 64-bit. I downloaded the app for the numpad, because I have an Ultrabook but the numpad is working like a regular number input. I want to use a numpad for use of Blender 3D to be able to change the view more easily.

    Any advice?

  51. Android server doesn’t list any Bluetooth device and the app says to make sure server is running but it is. Ubuntu 16.04 Android M

    • Just done it…

      First follow the instructions above (as for now : check if java is installed through “java –version”. On raspbian it IS the case.
      Download the file. Unpack the zip archive somewhere. Make the file executable (not sure it’s mandatory but I did it before trying).

      Then open a console, go to the directory where AndroMouse Server.jar is, and type “java -jar AndroMouse\ Server.jar” ot whatever name you gave to the file (please note if your definite begginer : ‘\ ‘ stands fot the space in a file name. I sugest removing the space in the name, I don’t like odd caracters in my command line).

      Now download AndroMouse on your phone, launch it, select a new connection, connect… and use.

      By the way, I’m stunned at the easyness and efficienty of the app, congratulation it’s so simple and convenient…

  52. Hi Suraj, thanks for building an app that send to have a good robust easy to implement Bluetooth connection!! Tried various other possibilities and yours is the first that works for me.

    I do have some feedback – specifically to do with the function key and numpad screen options. I understand that you want to leave the trackpad option open, but my screen (zte Blade q Lux) is small enough that half of each function key is obscured, as are the 0 and . Keys on the numpad. I really need the numpad particularly, so if there’s any way to implement a “full screen” option, where you don’t have the option of a partial screen trackpad but do have full-size number keys, that would be amazing.

    Hope this feedback is useful.

    • Hi Helen, Thank you for liking the app. Next update will allow full-screen remotes so you can use all the keys. I will also be adding new features like the ability to create your own custom remote. Stay tuned.

      • Hi again Suraj

        This is wonderful news!! Can’t wait – this is functionality I’ve been waiting for for ages!!

        Cheers 😀

      • Suraj, if you would kindly create an app similar to what you have done but that allows a Bluetooth mouse to work smoothly on an android phone. I wanted to use my phone as a computer with a TV as a monitor. So I purchased “ScreenBeamMini2” which functions perfectly in allowing you to view and hear whatever is on your phone on your TV without wires. I also purchased a Bluetooth keyboard and a Bluetooth mouse to use the phone as a computer and to allow me to use the USB-C port to maintain a charge on the phone. The keyboard works well with the phone. The mouse works well on a computer but not on the phone. On the phone, the mouse arrow has no lag but continues to move forward about 2 spaces after you stop the mouse on the mouse pad whether you use the mouse directly on your phone or on the TV. I figure it would be easy for you to find or create a driver you could install on your phone to make a handheld mouse work well and have good functionality on the phone. If you can make a mouse work well on the phone it will work equally as well using the TV as a Monitor with ScreenBeamMini2.

  53. Hi, I have your app but when using the mouse control , the cursor on the computer is stuck on the right side of the screen. I have 2 monitors with the primary monitor on the right and the secondary on the left in a 2 desktop configuration. My phone is an LG g4 running lollipop and the computer is running Debian Jessie. Do you have any ideas to fix this? the computer is using Andromouse 6.0

      • Hi, I have the same problem. Two monitor, the primary on the right in a 2 desktop configuration. I have Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS and the cursor on the computer is stuck on the right side of the screen. Works up and down but always stuck on the right side. The buttons work well.

        Nice app anyway.
        Best regards, tomadisk.

  54. Will this work on a Chromebook? Didn’t see it specifically stated but was wondering i about any knowledge on an alternative or current or future development??

  55. Hi, I cannot use this app, the screen of my LG is too small. So the accept button to connect with wlan is “out of reach”. A scrollbox would be nice here or is there any other solution? Thanks a lot

      • hey i am facing serious connectivity issues i realy like v5 but this is disappointing me. please help.
        i loved this app since v2. the Bluetooth gets disconnected and then it doesn’t get connected so i have to close the app and start again.
