    Android phone as an input device

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if this is possible or is already posted here, but is there a possibility to use an Android tablet like the N7 as an input device? Like macro keys on a keyboard.

    Since Android got the ability act as USB Host, is there anyway this can be done?

    Thank you.

    Regards.

    Actually, Android devices running ICS (OS version 4.0.x) no longer have the ability to be mounted as USB Mass Storage. You can thank Google for that, as they have removed that feature from the OS.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    That sucks... Couldn't you re-enable that after rooting it though?
    The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life.
