Mouse Toggle app now works with the Amazon Fire TV Cube

The popular Mouse Toggle app for Fire TV devices has just been updated to work with the new Amazon Fire TV Cube. This app lets you use your Fire TV remote as a mouse by simulating a mouse cursor that you control using the directional buttons of the Fire TV remote. It’s not as good as having an actual physical mouse connected to your Fire TV, but it’s handy for pressing a few touch buttons in sideloaded apps that were designed for a touch interface. The app initially didn’t work correctly with the Fire TV Cube, but the developer has just released version 1.11 that fixes the issues. Amazon does not allow this app in the Fire TV appstore, so you have to purchase it through your phone from the Google Play Store or iOS App Store. The app will then instruct you on how to get it installed on your Fire TV directly from your phone.

    From personal experience of using it, Mouse Toggle 1.11 does work for the Cube now, but only because of a work around that causes us to cut our FTVC resolution down to 1080p 50hz due to a bug that changes where the cursor lays in a higher resolution. You can find out more about this on the developer’s support page. At the bottom under FAQ for the Cube.

    I thought mouse toggle required root? Maybe something changed…
