Pad remote-controls Macs

Philip Hansson has announced Pad, an iPhone and iPod touch application for remote controlling a Mac via Wi-Fi. The app lets users can control a Mac's mouse, keyboard and volume controls, and supports functions such as dragging, zooming and scrolling, left-, right- and double-clicks, and hotkeys with the option for application-specific custom keys. A host Mac can use any resolution, and any number of screens.

Pad further includes server software for the Mac, PadD, which allows people to create custom keystrokes and link them to images or gestures. PadD then transfers these settings to a handheld as quick-access shortcuts. The main software is available for $1 at the App Store.

    It's still not TouchPad.

    I'll hold out for a proper port of TouchPad Pro. Or at least VNsea. Pad sounds like a gimmick to me, and it doesn't work over cellular networks.
