I just gotta say something...

A product review, if you will.

I got an "Fly Air Mouse" for the Mk808, and am mostly unhappy with it. The accuracy isn't that good, and it doesn't function all the time. The keys bounce, and the some of the buttons don't always do what it says.

There is a nice bluetooth to USB dongle that just plugs in the Mk808 and it all woks fine. The instructions aren't really clear. You need to push the Android button down half way, to use it like a mouse. The full press means select, similar to the left mouse button, but it doesn't always work.

There is a full keyboard on the device, that can be very nice. searching for netflix videos, or entering something in a web site. You need to be careful, the keys bounce. You might be typing in a simple word, say "columbus" and it comes out "ccollumbbuus". I am never sure, and still pressing the delete or back space, and that key will bounce. Getting back to the first "c" may erase the whole word.

Actually I think the best thing would be a simple wireless mouse. The on screen keyboard on the Mk808 is really solid, and almost everything can be done with the left mouse button.

I don't want to complain about anything, or make the world think that this is completely useless. It can be usable, but I probably won't use it much.

That is all for tonight.
