LG Electronics, the Korean company responsible for crafting some of the most innovative phones came out with a new application recently. The application is titled as VPInput and allows users to have remote access to their smartphones. As of this moment, the application provides compatibility with a few selected phones that is LG V10, LG G4, and LG G5, however, support for other devices is also in the pipeline.
In order to utilize this application, the users need to first download the VPInput application on their smartphone. Subsequently, they need to download the VPInput PC Client on their computer. It must be made clear that the application requires the presence of a Bluetooth connection between the smartphone and the computer in order for it to work. In a recent statement, LG further clarified that the application doesn’t offer support for Bluetooth Dongle, hence the functionality of this application is limited to computers that have Bluetooth integrated.
Once the entire connection is established, users will have the ability to seamlessly browse their smartphone devices via their computer without going through the hassle of picking up their phone. Furthermore, users will have the ability to control their phone directly by using both the computer keyboard and mouse.
The tech giant stated that the new application will give users the ease to control their LG smartphones directly from their computers through the VPInput App. Furthermore, the ability to use their PC’s mouse and keyboard will give them a convenient and hassle-free solution to use their device when they are working on their desk or when they need to compose work which cannot be appropriately done through regular touch input.
The application is not just limited to browsing, instead, it also allows functions like text input and using functions like copy and paste with the regular computer keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V, respectively). The program will be most convenient when one is working on their computer because this would provide the user with ease to access all smartphone notifications directly from the VPInput client. The application also grants users the ability to respond normally on IM apps, and other chat services. Further, the application also provides the ability to send computed clicked screenshots to the smartphone contacts through the VPInput app. The best part about the application is that it is completely free and available for download on the Google Play Store.
