Salling Software AB’s
Sony Ericsson Clicker has taken the Mac world by storm. The software has enabled users with Bluetooth-equipped Sony Ericsson phones to operate their Macs by remote control. Now the software has a new name — Salling Clicker — to better reflect the company’s focus on its development going forward.
In explaining the name change, developer Jonas Salling reiterated that the company’s commitment to Sony Ericsson products remains strong. “Going forward, however, I felt it made a lot of sense to not rule out the possibility of supporting other mobile devices,” he said.
With Salling Clicker installed, Mac users can perform a variety of tasks from their cell phones like navigate through Keynote presentations, operate iTunes playlists, control DVD-Video access, and much more. It sports a “proximity sensor” to trigger actions when you leave or return to your Mac. And with extensive AppleScript support, Salling Clicker can be used to control your Mac in other ways, too.
Salling Clicker v1.5 is available for download and registration for US$9.95. A trial version is available. The software requires Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later and a compatible phone — right now, Sony Ericsson T39, T520, T68, T68i and T610 models are supported. For more details visit the Web site.
