Anyone know of a utility that would allow you to grant someone permission to remotely log into and control your iOS device and provide crucial assistance with, say, a troublesome Angry Birds level?

I never had problems beating a level, I just used YouTube once in a while if I couldn't get 3 stars. Even then it wasn't guaranteed you would get it, some levels are just really hard.

LOL no. Just try YouTube ;)
You can remotely control an iDevice. You need to be jailbroken, you will also need to install Veency from Cydia. Veency is a VNC application, which allows control of your devices screen. Enjoy :)

I had a bad experience with jailbreaking a previous handset. :/ I'll go the YouTube route for now. Thank you for the info, though!

You have the 4S right? That's why I didn't suggest the jailbreak, an untethered version is not available for the 4S. You can do pretty much everything when you're jailbroken.

You're welcome :)

If Benni's right in saying you own a 4S it doesn't matter, the device you remotely log into has to have Veency installed. You use a computer and a VNC client e.g Chicken of the VNC to login to the device.
