I know this is going to sound a bit counter intuitive but a lot of Android devices support mice/keyboards. The problem is that not many games have built in mapping for using mouse clicks, so whilst you can move the mouse around whilst using OSRS Mobile, you can't then click on objects. I'm not sure how much work this would take to get it to work, but if you could get mouse clicks to work it'd certainly make things like zulrah actually viable on a mobile and wouldn't give any extra benefit to playing mobile over the PC version.

Agreed, I got into the beta and was interested in trying out my bluetooth mouse to play with but while I can move the mouse, clicking does nothing. I tested in other apps and confirmed that it was only the osrs app that didn't work with my mouse.

I hope they can fix it so we can play with mice.

Its in beta they will add it I'm 100% sure give it time. This is a huge selling point to people that want to use tablets. In the world we live in there's more people with smartphones and tablets now and Jagex knows this.

What's the point in that, seems very pointless in my eyes...if you want to use a mouse then go home and use your laptop lol.

What even is this comment. We're talking about the mobile client and your answer is "go play on a computer".

I love the portability the mobile client provides but I dislike misclicking on the touch screen because of things being so small. Being able to use a mouse on my phone would resolve that issue.

Agreed.

A working mouse would be a nice feature to have.

But why mouse?
Reading some reasons, of mis-clicks... what about a stylus pen?

I mean, i only say this because i have a note 8. with the pen, it's bloody amazing for precision. and i think it's better than a mouse, since u don't need to physically have some sort of mat to move your mouse around?

rather spend money on a stylus so i can actually be mobile.

or am i missing the point here?
