New: Logitech Touch Mouse Turns Your iPhone or iPod Touch into a Wireless Trackpad and Keyboard

UPDATE: For more info on how to install the Logitech Touch Mouse app, check out our video walkthrough.

iPhone and iPod touch owners: If you haven’t had the chance to check it out, go to the iTunes App Store and download our cool new Touch Mouse app. It 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, so you can use it anywhere in your house and is 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.

And the best part is, the app is free!

Download Touch Mouse in two-steps:
1) Get the Touch Mouse App for your iPhone or iPod touch from the App Store
2) Download Touch Mouse Server software and install it on your computer.

You’ll find instructions when you download the Touch Mouse Server software on Logitech.com.

Once you’re up and running, Touch Mouse will allow you to take advantage of the following features:

  • Multi-touch trackpad with the option for two or three mouse buttons
  • Two-finger scrolling
  • Keyboard with Control, Alt, Command/Windows keys
  • On-screen text display while typing
  • Show or hide the keyboard at any time
  • Trackpad and keyboard are available in landscape and portrait modes

Give it a “scroll” and let us know what you think!

  • What is the holdup with releasing this in Canada? What could possibly take so long? Is there a valid reason for this delay or does Logitech simply hate Canada?

  • this app is so awesome (pointless though) but i am using right now it ls so sick
    + its free GET IT

  • Canadian availability requested. It would be very nice to use this but I can’t get access.

  • Android version please. Or are owners of Apple phones the only ones who deserve apps from logitech?

  • it’s really comfortable. I like connect my computer to tv. I often didn’t do it becouse it was uncomfortable with 2 meters ling cable and now I can sit on my sofa and use my computer ;D

  • You said this would be available in Canada, in March, while it is now April and still not available.
    So do we get a new ETA on this coming to the Candian app store?

  • Please Sir can I have the Canada version? (or at least a release date for Canada iTunes Store.)

  • As said before, please make this for Android too. And please keep the 2-finger scroll. That’s simply pure dev. gold.

  • Would love to see key board short cuts mapped to the interface you have.

    Then i could used this with my logitec wheel for pit stop changes etc.. in the game and not have to fool around with they keyboard.

  • Is the Canadian problem that you have to release a french version? If so I’ll volunteer to help with the translation.

  • I have a big 17″” screen laptop and want to use the Iphone or Ipad – BUT …. I won’t be home or in the office so I won’t have a wireless network to connect to. Is there a way to use Bluetooth or link an Ipad directly to the notebook wirelessly?

  • Andy, you seem to be the only one at Logitech who has worked with an iPad or iPod application for a product interface. I love my 2.4 Presenter and have bought several as gifts for fellow presenters. I have a problem. I just got an iPad and have loaded all my PPTs into Keynote on my iPad. This is a great presentation device except for one thing – it will not use my Presenter. Will you please create an iPad App for your loyal fans. I have purchased the camera unload interface for the iPad so it has a USB 2.0 port. I will pay for it and be glad to beta it for you. Call me if you need more info. I think it will give you a great new market. Many thanks and please let me know. Tommy

  • Neat app, though i get random slowdowns, it works perfectly for about 30 seconds then the cursor lags behind the input from my iPhone heavily for about 15 seconds, rinse, lather, repeat, not sure if its a logitech or iphone problem.

  • While I know that the iPhone is the hot, new thing, why the hell is it that all other mobile platforms have been ignored thus far? Android has a much bigger marketplace and Windows Moible is still in existance, and would have been easier and cheaper to make for either of those platforms. Just saying

  • Sorry logitech, too slow on the Canadian release. I’m using air mouse and it works great.

  • Definitely need to make this for Android…and make a Linux version of the server program. Controlling an Ubuntu HTPC with my Droid running this app would be awesome.

  • It is a crying shame, it is time to replace my keyboard and due to lack of this showing up on the Canadian App store and no details on why not, I will not be purchasing Logitech…

  • I love the touch mouse app, but some blu-Ray discs prohibit mouse interaction. An iPad version and arrow keys would be fantastic.

  • I used this on my iPhone. Would love to have this app on my Desire.

    Many thanks for a great app.

    Cheers
