Salling Software has announced the release of
3.5, a new version of its software that turns mobile phones and PDAs into a two-way remote for the Mac. It costs $23.95; upgrades from previous versions are free.
Salling Clicker enables you to use your cell phone or handheld computer to remote control software on your Mac including iTunes and EyeTV, PowerPoint, Keynote and other applications. As a two-way remote, the software will display information on your phone such as iTunes playlists, notes from your slideshow presentation and more. Salling Clicker communicates over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and works with more than 300 phone models.
New to this release is “zero-configuration” support for Wi-Fi and expanded support for Wi-Fi-equipped smartphones running on Windows Mobile and Symbian OS. Support has also been added for Apple’s Front Row software, and support for iTunes, PowerPoint, EyeTV and Keynote has been enhanced.
New devices supported in this release include units running Symbian 9, like the Nokia N95 and Sony Ericsson P990i, as well as Windows Mobile 5 and 6 devices such as the Motorola Q and the HTC S710.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, a supported phone and Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity.
