This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This app requires the "Made for iPhone" iWavit Premium hardware in order for it to work! Go to www.iwavit.com to learn more.
This app turns the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad into a wireless input device for controlling your computer via the
1. Patented 3D Motion-Tracking Air-mouse,
2. Wireless microphone, and
3. Wireless USB keyboard.
The iWavit Talk'nPoint app is a virtual metaphor for the original award-winning Wavit 3D PC Remote (www.wavit.com). It was modified here to support the addition of the wireless microphone.
The iWavit Attachment plugs straight into the iPhone, and the iWavit Plug & Play USB dongle and IR Lightbar plug into the PC to be controlled. No PC software installation is required. No WiFi network is needed. It is all Plug & Play.
You can now intuitively control a PC connected to a large screen (TV, or Projector) by simply pointing your iDevice at the screen - Where you point is where the cursor goes! The tracking is ABSOLUTE, with no drift over time and no need for constant re-centering of the cursor. This is unlike what you will experience with gyro-based relative-motion air mice. Moreover since both roll angle and distance of the iPhone from the screen are tracked, it is possible to simply twist the remote in the air to adjust the PC volume or to pull the remote towards you to zoom in on pictures or websites. These gestures are known as Air-Dial and Air-Zoom, respectively, and are activated by pressing the Volume or Zoom buttons on the iPhone screen.
The rest of the button layout is geared towards general control of a PC with special emphasis on web browsing, with up/down/left/right/select buttons as well as a "back" button to Browse Back and "Esc" button to get you out of YouTube or a Flash movie.
Moreover, as you start using a remote control air-mouse with a PC, you will inevitably find yourself reaching for a keyboard to log in to screens or to search for websites, videos and music. The TalknPoint helps you out here too. Simply press the Keyboard button, and you turn the iPhone into a Wireless USB Keyboard! It works on any PC/Mac/Linux computer. It also supports different international keyboard layouts.
The Talkn'Point app, as the name suggests, adds one more important feature to your Natural Interaction with the PC. The iWavit hardware incorporates a wireless microphone. When you plug the iWavit USB dongle into a PC it will register a new Audio Class RF Microphone. You can use this to talk to friends via Voice-over-IP calls such as Skype, or you can use it to issue voice commands to the PC if your PC/Mac supports it.
