Shareware Spotlight: Remote Buddy

Control your Mac with Remote Buddy

Yesterday I mentioned the website, MacSanta, which offers 20% discounts on Mac software during the month of December. I don’t normally talk about the same service two days in a row, but one of the apps featured today really cought my eye. It’s called, Remote Buddy.

Remote Buddy tremendously enhances the capabilities of your Apple Remote. Here’s a blurb from their site:

“Remote Buddy turns the remote control in your hands into a key to your entire system. No matter, whether you want to control applications and presentations, browse and playback your music and video collection, watch TV with EyeTV, browse the web or your filesystem, make the globe turn in Google™ Earth, enter a text, move the mouse, play games or maybe just change the brightness of your screen – you can do this all with Remote Buddy! And so much more!”

One thing that isn’t mentioned in that blurb, is the fact that Remote Buddy now comes with a component called, Remote Buddy’s AJAX Remote, which allows you to use your iPhone or iPod Touch to control your Mac.

I haven’t really had the time to play with Remote Buddy yet, but it looks totally cool!

Remote Buddy normally runs 19.99 € (about $29 US). Today only you can use the coupon code from MacSanta to get 20% off. If you miss the sale today, you can still get 10% off until December 24th by using the coupon code listed in MacSanta’s Extended Deals section.
