    Does anybody know if Android offers an equivalent to the Rowmote app on iOS. Essentially it acts as a keyboard, and mouse for my computers. It can launch apps and act as a remote for any program that uses it. Its awesome for my home theater set up and a huge reason I love my iPhone and iPad.

    Does Android have something that does the equivalent, preferably with OSX as I use it more than Windows.

    Don't know if this is the same, but look up Unified Remote on the Play store or

    I'm the developer of Rowmote. I'm really excited to hear that you're interested in an 'equivalent' to Rowmote on Android, because we're hard at work on an Android version :) The initial version will support remote control, dock/app launcher, and keyboard functions, a bit of a hybrid between Rowmote and Rowmote Pro; the trackpad/gesture pad part of Rowmote Pro will come later.
