Suggest new Mouse pointer for iPad and Android

Hi...been playing around with vWorkspace VDI on ipad and android device for a while now and

would like to suggest a design/feature change to the mouse pointer to help navigate Windows on these devices.

Win7 VDI is better than XP VDI on these devices but still is it possible :-

1. Have a "kind of" closed scissor design ( see below ) , where you have a pointer at one end and 2 "finger" place holder at other end

to control / move and navigate Windows menus , scroll etc.

so... if you keep your finger on the left place holders ..it act as it currently design on the Quest ipad/android Connectors

that is you can move the mouse over items and click.

then with the other finger place holder - press and you get the "right click" option on Windows menu's

and finally - put both fingers on the place holder and this give the feature to allow you to auto scroll up and down menu's

           __________

<---------|__________|  (right click place holder )

           |__________|  (left click place holder )

No Problem, I figure this way we don't have to ban people from using our software.   : o)

cheers...

it would make if easy to work with "Windows" on these devices because it behave's

like a true mouse ( if possible... )

ohh also dont forget...

to cater for Left handed people ( like me :-) ..so you could switch the function of the left/right

finger place holder

I vote for a ban of left handed desktop virtualization users!

Oh cheers,  Dan

you've made me redundant ( one day we lefty's will rule the world !!!!  :-)

I'm left handed but like the buttons the "normal" way round... Guess I'm ambidextrous, so I vote for a ban on left handed and right handed virtualization users!

LoL...

that's not going to work on my "suggested design" because if your left handed you end up have to cross fingers !!!

Hi Pritpal,
My Name is Scott, I was the one who created the right hand biased mouse cursor. I see your point (snicker) about the pointer not being left handed friendly. I'll talk it over with the programers/project engeneers and see if we can put an option somewhere to trigger a more left handed friendly pointer. 

Thanks for pointing that out!
