Iospirit has released Remote Buddy 1.1.4, an update to its application for remotely controlling a Mac via a mobile device. The software allows users to perform a variety of functions, from accessing the iTunes library and browsing media, to controlling system and display settings, directly from their mobile device. In the latest version, support has been added for Spotify and Hulu Desktop, along with Remote Buddy's AJAX Remote web application which allows users to control the desktop system through gestures on the iPhone and iPod touch.
With the addition of gesture control, users can also remotely access applications such as iPhoto, PowerPoint and Keynote. The application enables an iPhone or iPod touch to control a Mac over a local Wi-Fi network. Remote Buddy is designed as Universal Binary software and is capable of working on both a PowerPC and Intel Mac.
The software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and is available for purchase from the company's online site for $28. Version 1.1.4 is a free upgrade to all currently registered users.
