There are many options out there that give you the ability to mirror (or project) what you see on your smartphone to a TV or computer monitor (such as Screenbeam, Amazon Firestick, Google Chromecast and Roku). If interested, I wrote an article about Screenbeam (click here) where I use it to mirror to my TV in my RV. The other devices (which many of you may already have), that I reflected, the mirroring options work quite well.
When mirroring to a TV with your Android Smartphone it gives you a near computer-like experience. To make this experience even more “computer-like” I use an Android app called “Auto Cursor”. This app was primarily developed to make it easier to use large smartphones with one hand by using a pointer accessible from the edges of the screen. What I have found using this app, when mirroring my phone to a TV is that I don’t have to look down to the phone for navigation and can move the pointer around the TV screen as I would with a mouse pointer on a computer. There are several apps like “Auto Cursor” on the Google Play Store; however, I found this one to be the one I personally like and the fact that the developer is always making improvements and listening to his user base.

What can Auto Cursor do for you?
• Use cursor to reach every side of the screen
• Perform click, long click or drag
• Apply different actions for click or long click on each of the 3 triggers
• Edit the triggers, tracker and cursor to your needs by choosing size, color and effects
