I that layout is fine for me. Maybe you can make one for landscape mode
(and have the buttons on the right side or something like that) too,
but this already feels quite usable. Maybe a single click in the
touchscreen area could also just translate to a left click like
touchpads usually do.

I just tried it out and I must say I like it. :-)
It's real fun controlling the mouse on my laptop from the Neo. Keep up
the good work.
