Synergy for Android Phone (LG G4) and Tablet. Wouldn't it be great to be able to reply and use your phone with your computers mouse and keyboard?

This is a very common feature request, be nice to see some progress on it. The project on sourceforge seems abandoned, maybe it can serve as the base ? Alternatively maybe a Synergy developer can make a sticky post about why they don't think it is worth doing ...

Hello, Use case: I am used to use two monitors at office. When I go home I really miss the two monitors when using the tiny laptop screen. I use Synergy with a windows tablet to have experience like having two monitors. It can be useful if the tablet is android or ios as well. Regards, Carlos

Any progress on this, I purchased the software thinking it would let me control my android phone but this has not happened as the software on sourceforge is not working with the Windows/Mac app.

@Murray - you might get a refund offer, it is not on their development plan at this time and no indication when/if it ever will be. Probably need some android experts to get involved, I'd certainly contribute toward a bounty !

I believe demand for an Android version will increase as more devices (not necessarily just phones and tablets, but also single-board computers such as the Raspberry Pi 3 [[url]http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/05/google-to-bring-official-android-support-to-the-raspberry-pi-3/[/url]] and ODROID devices [[url]http://www.hardkernel.com/main/main.php[/url]]) use Android. I don't have any data to back up this claim, but with negligible competition so far it seems Synergy is already in a position to corner this market. I think it may be worth investigating, at least.

I would just like to voice my wish to see this on android. I don't have a second monitor but I do have an Android tablet that I would like to use as a secondary screen. :D
