Ratings and Reviews
Awesome, Especially with Mountain Lion
This is a great app! I have been using it for the last 4-5 years, originally starting with the version for the iPod Touch. It is a great alternative to a touchpad and wireless keyboard when trying to run your computer when hooked up to the TV. I have both the touchpad and the keyboard, but trying to balance their use is fairly difficult. This gives you all the access you need to fully control your computer and even wakes it up while it is asleep.
The iPad version was a great upgrade, adding more buttons and functionality. I would recommend this great app for anyone seeking to make their life a little easier and more wire free. Thanks to the new upgrades from Mountain Lion I can now stream my desktop wirelessly to any of my apple tvs and use this app to control my computer as if I was in front of it. The lag is hardly noticeable! Would definitely recommend.
I hope that future functionality is added to toggle airplay mirroring from the iPad. This could allow me to actually toggle the airplay stream and turn it on, which would require nothing but me needing to essentially just plug my laptop into power and control it however I need to. Would be even better if this was added!
If you already own this for the iPhone or iPod be ready to buy it again. That said, here's what I have to say about this AMAZING app.
I'm impressed. Basically, from a nerd-standpoint, it hijacks your system wirelessly and gives you control from the iPad. Install it on your buddy's laptop and hide around the corner if you want... open up applications, type in porn site addresses... but let's talk about REAL practical uses.
This program can be used several ways. Home Theater PC (htpc) for one; it's a great way to sit back on your sofa and control your computer from across the room. All you need is to be connected to your wifi router and you're all set, which is great because bluetooth use on the iPad is a battery killer (I'm using a BT keyboard right now) so... what can I say? WiFi-FTW!
Now, what's REALLY COOL about this app is that you can use it to control more than one computer. Let's say I'm using my desktop with multi-monitors but my laptop is running. So... I use the app to make my ipad do what I want my desktop to do... then I can change over to take control of the laptop without getting up. Now if you have several desktops running... you don't have to swap between mice and keyboards... FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!
Some small, annoying changes to a solid product
I used this app on my iPad 2 for over a year now, it really is an excellent product. If I was rating this on my old iPad 2, it would get 5 stars. I just have some minor issues with the new version on my iPad 3. First issue I have is that when trying to activate the music controls/volume panel, it either starts or brings forward iTunes, on top of whatever I was trying to do. Please revert or add a separate system utilities panel to manage system volume, eject, universal player controls, etc. that does not open a application. Other issue is starting orientation when resuming the app. It always resumes in portrait mode, even when stopped in landscape and the iPad is in landscape when I launch the app. I never use this app in portrait mode. Show me a laptop trackpad in portrait orientation. I like that there is an option but please make it work right. It is still a very good product and I will give it a 5 star rating once these small issues are fixed.
