Do you want to get remote access to your smartphone (LG G5, G4 or V10) via your Windows PC or Mac? Install VPInput on your phone, an application that works over Bluetooth, which means that you won’t need to be connected to the internet in order to use it. You will also need to install the PC companion software (LG VPInput PC Program), but if the computer or laptop doesn’t support Bluetooth connectivity, you will need to buy an adapter.
It’s easier to type messages or emails using a physical keyboard and to get through the menus using the mouse. LG made this possible and VPInput is the application you’ll need to install if you want to copy files on your PC and to make them available on your smartphone. This application has another feature that allows you to instantly share a screenshot of your smartphone to your computer and using keyboard shortcuts, you will easily switch between applications. So, if you want to open WhatsApp on your PC and to log into your account from your PC, you will press Ctrl-F1. However, you probably know that WhatsApp already has a native application for desktop, which require you to scan the QR code with your phone’s camera.
One thing’s for sure: VPInput will boost your productivity, by helping you to do more work on your smartphone using a PC keyboard and mouse. It’s a “convenient solution when you’re at your desk but want to check your phone without interrupting your workflow,” said LG. VPInput can be download from the Play Store and iTunes, but you should know that it’s incompatible for non-LG phones. However, if you’re intending to control your smartphone via a Windows PC, you should install VPInput PC Program on a computer or laptop running on at least Windows 7 OS.
