Remote Conductor productivity app adds Windows control

Conductor can launch Mac, PC apps, switch windows

Windows support has arrived for m3me's productivity app, Remote Conductor for iPad. The app wirelessly connects, via 256-bit AES encryption, to a Mac as a control center -- capable of application and window switching and remote program launching. It also allows users to work on the iPad as a wireless trackpad or a secure keyboard for the desktop Mac. The app requires the desktop machine to have Conductor Server software installed.

The new update adds a Windows version of Conductor Software, allowing the iPad to do all the above for PCs. The Launcher starts apps on the PC as if they were apps on the iPad. It also displays icons pinned to the PC's taskbar as a scrollable row at the bottom of the screen. The Application and Window Switcher displays all of a PC's open windows as thumbnails in a scrollable grid -- tapping on a thumbnail can focus a window. You can also close, minimize or maximize windows.

The app works with iOS 3.2 on the iPad. It requires either Conductor Server 1.1.7 for Mac, requiring Mac OS X 10.6, or Conductor Server for Windows 1.0.0, requiring Windows XP SP3, Vista SP2 or Windows 7 in 32- or 64-bit versions. The Conductor Server applications are free, while Remote Conductor HD is $7. A $2 iPhone version was also recently launched.
