[prMac.com] Netanya, Israel - Independent developer, Evgeny Cherpak today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Remote * Pro 5.0.3, an important update to his remote control app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Remote * Pro allows iOS users to remotely control their Mac OS X computer via its on-screen trackpad, keyboard, and volume control. This app offers anyone the ability to launch applications, enter text, control their mouse pointer, and adjust their Mac's volume, all without ever needing to leave their couch.
Remote * Pro offers users a convenient way to control their Mac OS X-based computer without the need to be sitting in front of the unit. The app connects via Wi-Fi to the Mac, and offers anyone the ability to completely control it from anywhere, while on the same Wi-Fi network. It offers users complete control of their Mac, while offering them the flexibility to be located anywhere in their house, or office.
* Complete control of a Mac at the user's fingertips, they can even relax on their couch
* Wi-Fi-connected keyboard and trackpad, making it the perfect controller option for a Home Theater PC
* Control the mouse pointer via a built-in touchscreen trackpad
* Control the Mac's volume while playing music or viewing a movie, or mute it completely
* Enter text in any app, or any webpage textfield, via the app's convenient on-screen keyboard
* Launch or quit any app that is installed on a Mac
* Complete control makes it perfect for running apps or watching video content via AirPlay on an Apple TV
* Use of a Wi-Fi-based connection offers superior range and performance compared to Bluetooth
* No dongle to install, or possibly lose
* Control any Mac on the local Wi-Fi network
"Until now, users have had a limited amount of options to remotely control their Mac while away from their desk. Plus, the options that were available were limited by distance and performance," says Remote Pro developer Evgeny Cherpak. "However, Remote Pro is the Swiss Army knife of remote apps - allowing anyone to control their Mac's volume - using their iOS device's touchscreen as trackpad and keyboard - and launching any apps on their Mac, all without ever leaving their couch!"
What's New in Version 5.0.3:
* A bigger volume thumb wheel
* Now uses the same orientation for trackpad and keyboard
Remote * Pro offers movie and video addicts a convenient way to view video content stored on their Mac, especially via AirPlay on their Apple TV that's hooked up to a high-definition television in their living room. Even if they need to switch apps to play a different format of video, or simply want to play music instead of video, Remote * Pro makes it a simple process. Previously when viewing or listening to content via AirPlay users would have to get off the couch and go to their Mac to change apps, or to search for a favorite video or a particular music selection. Remote * Pro allows users to sit on their couch, while they use their iOS device to completely control their Mac from anywhere in their house.
"I'm a total couch potato, I love binging on TV series. I'm also a huge Apple head, with an iPhone & iPad, and Apple Watch. The MacBook Pro is my workhorse. But, I also have a Mac Mini, which is connected to my 51-inch HDTV and acts as a HTPC," continues Evgeny. "The idea for the app was planted one cold winter weekend morning, I didn't want to leave my bed, but I really wanted to listen to some music. So I opened the Apple Remote app only to discover that iTunes wasn't running on my Mac Mini! A decision had to be made, leave my warm bed to launch iTunes on my Mac, or stay in bed. That morning 'stay in bed' won. However, it did give me an idea for the Remote * Pro app, and I immediately started working on it. As I've continued to work on it, the app has turned into a complete remote control solution for the Mac!"
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 8.0 or later
