New plugin enables e-mail viewing
RoboHippo has released an update to its HippoRemote Pro iPhone app. The utility features a virtual keyboard and multi-touch mouse, enabling users to remotely control media or switch through programs on a Mac via Wi-Fi. Version 2.0 offers new tools to create and upload personalized profiles, while providing an integrated browser to view e-mails or update Facebook.
Other new features include support for storing up to five macros at once, a Twitter plug-in for posting updates or browsing timelines, and a new Boxee plug-in which enables gesture-based control from the touchpad. The update also provides a series of interface improvements, with new customization options for profile creation and support for three- and four-finger trackpad gestures. A new landscape trackpad option has also been added.
HippoRemote Pro 2.0 requires iPhone OS 3.0 and can be downloaded as a free update for all current users. New customers can purchase the app from the App Store for $5.
