Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Off Remote lets you turn off, lock, sleep, log off and restart a PC or Mac directly from your iDevice.
Forgot to turn off the office computer? No need to get up. Want to stop the kid's marathon computer sessions? Do it remotely.
The timer function lets you set Off to trigger up to 24 hours in the future so you can set a computer to automatically turn off after a task such as completing a download or upload or to automatically lock at a certain time to limit a child's screen time.
If you want to know whether the computers in your house are turned off - you can check from your iDevice.
If you use a computer to stream videos or audio to your living room, then you can turn it off when you are finished without getting out of the sofa.
If you forget to turn things off at night then you can turn them off from wherever you are in the house.

“Off is a brilliant yet simple app that allows me to easily control the power state of all the PCs in my house. It also lets me check to make sure that when my daughter assures me she turned her computer off, that she really did.”
“Very simple and easy to setup. When I say simple I didn't have to set anything up. Just install the server and the app picked up my laptop straight away. All the buttons worked, it's amazing. No more having to get out if bed to turn the laptop off for the night.”
'..it's the least you can do for the environment.' App Of My Eye.
“such a simple program yet it's so handy at work and home I use It every day! and it's cool to be able to turn ur pc/mac off from your iPhone or iPod :D”
“We often end up PC's being left on overnight and this app has helped us manage this ... We have several wireless music senders dotted around the house also which feed off the desktop PC in the dining room. I've added iTunes to the startup menu on that PC and can restart the PC using this app ... once restarted I can then switch to my iTunes remote and start listening to my music without having to tramp downstairs.”

What's New in Version 3.73
tweaks and fixes
Needs helper app
There are free pieces of software that do the same thing and don't need yet another piece of software installed on your PC. MS Remote Desktop can COMPLETELY control your windows machine, is free, and written by Microsoft. Mac remote control is tricker, but it also always remote power on functions. All in all, this app is ok, but I don't do apps that need "helpers," since you don't know precisely what info they are/aren't sending out to the Internet. Helper apps can EASILY be spyware in disguise, even though the author didn't design it as such.
Kids hate it, we love it,
Great app that gives parents control of kid's computer time. Tell them they have 20 minutes, set the app, and listen for the scream for when the computer locks. The kids can go read a book or something.....
After lying in bed and finishing my show for my good night sleep, I able to turn off my computer without having to walk up to it
