so i realize that the iPhone should never be "lowered" to just a "remote" for your computer.. but it's pretty cool and works pretty nice for an alpha program. :)

but this program you install on your mac.. it's conveniently called iPhone remote... and it allows you to control your computer via a password protected safari window. you can see your files... control your iTunes... take a picture with isight... or even see your desktop (and navigate.. opening, closing programs, etc) rendered right on your iPhone screen! it's pretty amazing.. and just for a fun experiment, last night i wanted to see what my 30 inch monitor would look like in 3.5 inch glory...

behold... it worked

:)

Awesome! I stumbled on to that application last night as well and it is really amazing. I tried it today from my office (out side my home network where my MAC is) and it was still peppy and responsive as if I were on the network. Terrific for accessing documents and music :D.

I highly recommend you use WIFI with this service, EDGE would be a PAIN!

Question

How do I install iPhone remote and where? Is it a joke? What are the steps to make it work?

check out the website for it for full instructions... but basically you install the program on your mac... and then you access a website (actually your computer's ip address) with your iPhone. it works pretty slick. right now i'm using my iPhone to control my iTunes on my other computer :)

That pretty much sum's it up.

*Install .dmg
*Access MAC's IP (prob something like 192.168.0.xxx

VIOLA!

No luck for me. When I type in the IP address:5010 iniSafari, the page doesn't load

More ?'s

Does anybody know if it its compatible with Airport? Are there any configuration issue on the iPhone/mac that are not described on the website and need to be addressed? Are some networks incompatible (I'm trying this using airport linked itself to my hospital network. I wonder if security makes it impossible to connect.)
