Salling Software AB has updated its Salling Clicker utility to v2.1. Salling Clicker is a Bluetooth remote control utility for Mac OS X computers and many Bluetooth-equipped cell phones and PDAs. The new version adds support for “smartphones” that use the Symbian operating system, including models from Nokia, Siemens and Sony Ericsson.
With Salling Clicker installed, Mac OS X users can remotely control their Macs, switching iTunes tracks, for example, or controlling Keynote presentations, controlling Apple’s DVD Player software and more. The software offers extensive AppleScript support and customizability.
With support for Symbian-based phones, Salling Clicker provides the ability to view iTunes artwork in color. Pen-based Symbian smartphones can also control the Mac’s cursor.
Other improvements to the new release include an enhanced user interface, improved scripts to control iTunes, PowerPoint and other applications, and fixes and improvements galore. Salling Clicker 2.1 is now offered with a single license that covers all devices.
Salling Clicker costs US$19.95. The upgrade is free. A demo version that works for 30 clicks at a time is available for download.
