Just a quick note: The Touch Mouse application appears to be only available on the US iTunes store, necessitating the creation of a US iTunes account. Note this will not affect your iPT/iPhone in any way if you have apps from 2 accounts on it.

Hello stormkitty,

That's weird because I live in NZ and I can actually download this app from NZ. On what country do you live?

I don't think Logitech has developed the app for Android. There are others - but I prefer this.
