I'm often surprised at some of the nifty applications that come up for the iPhone and many of the things you can do with it. Usually it involves a utility or game app that can be played on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Air Mouse Pro is a cool app that transforms your iPhone into a wireless remote for your computer. Using the built in accelerometer in the Apple device, you can move the iPhone like a mouse and use many of the control functions presented on the screen.
Here is a list of some of the features:
- Accelerometer based mouse
- Trackpad (full screen vertical and landscape modes)
- Media keys & Web keys
- Application notifications - Remote keyboard with modifier, function and arrow keys
- Programable hotkeys (can be set to run a program or keyboard combination)
- Scroll pad
- Multitouch gestures (scroll & right click)
- Password protection
- Custom sensitivity settings
- Foreign language keyboards
- Supports Bonjour or static IP
- No screen size limitation. Works with multiple monitors.
This is a great app for just $2.99, especially for people like me who forget to pack their mouse in the computer back. I NEVER forget to take my iPhone though because it... Kicks Butt!
