Remote Buddy RC2
IOSpirit has released Remote Buddy RC2, an update to its remote control enhancement software that adds a full virtual onscreen keyboard and mousespot presentation tool. Remote Buddy enables users to directly control applications as well as system functions via "Behaviors," which are automatically selected based on the current system status. The latest release emulates a virtual Apple Remote to control applications such as iAlertU which usually require a built-in IR receiver, and supports using multiple Apple Remotes with different configurations as well as otherwise unavailable hardware features of internal receivers. The software supports the IR mousemode of the Nintendo Wii remote, as well as more than 70 applications and system functions. Remote Buddy RC2 is priced at $14 for a single seat, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.6 or later.
