[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - m3me, Inc. has announced Remote Conductor 1.0 for iPad, a productivity app for wirelessly controlling a Mac. Remote Conductor has a simple, polished UI and delivers three main features focused on streamlining everyday computing tasks: Application / Window Switcher, Remote Program Launcher and Wireless Trackpad.
Remote Conductor communicates securely over Wi-Fi with a free server program that runs on the Mac. The trackpad supports most modern multi-touch features such as left and right clicking, scrolling and dragging. It also has gestures for bringing up Expose, Spaces or the Dashboard. The Launcher allows programs on the Mac to be started just like apps on the iPad. It also displays icons pinned to the Mac's dock as a scrollable row at the bottom of the screen. The Application / Window Switcher displays all the Mac's open windows as thumbnails in a unique, scrollable grid. Any individual window can be focused and raised to the front by tapping on a thumbnail. This feature is unique to Remote Conductor.
"Many of us have iPads and really enjoy using them, but they sit idle for most of the day while we use our computers for heavier tasks," commented m3me co-founder, John Marshall. "Remote Conductor allows you to leverage your iPad's large touchpad and stunning display to use your Mac more effectively."
