I'm not sure why this thread was closed, so here's a new one regarding an app I was SOOOO hopeful for.

To those that are struggling with "why would you want such an application?", just think about owning an HTPC system on the big screen using Boxee and/or Hulu, and the need for such an app comes into clear view. I paid $140 for a Logitech Dinovo Mini keyboard/mouse combo that works great. Except the keyboard is off center and very hard to type one without using hunt and peck. And for those of us that type, it's frustrating.

Give me my BB and give it the same functionality and we're golden. However, I can't get bluCTRL to work, because 1. I'm using a Bold and 2. I'm using 64bit O/S. Developers please update.

MobiMouse not working well with BT, haven't put a lot of time into it yet, and here's why. I connect using USB and the mouse function using the trackball is not only less than desirable, it's a freakin travesty. It's almost as frustrating as my avatar ;). If the mouse is that bad on a direct connection, please keep your software to yourselves and release it when it's ready for what it's designed for. Somebody tell me it's a trackball issue, because I have no problem with my trackball using any app on my BB. This could be an awesome app one day.

Thanks for that, I was unaware of that policy on the forum.

bluCRTL was nice when i used it on my 8320 with Win7 32bit. But... windows wanted a different bluetooth stack for my belkin dongle, then bluCTRL wouldn't work on startup any more. so i had to re-pair my blackberry and pc every time.
Haven't tried it with my 9700.

The best solution i have found so far, is an iPod Touch, and either WiFiTouchPad app or Logitech's own TouchMouse app. Both work over the network through VNC, and I have had no problems getting them to work on bootup.
Logitech's is free at the moment, but its new and has a few bugs. The other is like $2 but does everything a laptop can do with the onscreen keyboards and mouse pad.

Thanks for the tip, but I'm looking to use my BB. I own an iNothing, and don't think I could stoop to that level.
