Personal Control for Your Apple Remote

Mira is designed exclusively for the Apple Remote, taking it beyond Front Row with personal control for any application, on any Mac.

The Apple Remote can be used on any Mac using Mira and a supported IR receiver (Twisted Melon's Manta TR1 , Apple Built-in IR Receiver, Keyspan IR Receivers & MCE/eHome 2005 Receivers)

Mira has built-in support for over 75 programs, new ones can be given their own specific actions in seconds with no learning curve and no additional software or plugins to download or install.

If you know how to use your favorite applications with a mouse and keyboard, you can make them work with the Apple Remote.

Works in Mac OS 10.4.11, 10.5.x and 10.6.2+

I prefer Sofa Control. cheaper, and better... no brainer.

Sells for $9.99 now due to a "Summer Sale" discount.

gogomat, I'm sorry, but you don't know what you're talking about. Please refrain from disseminating information without factual basis. It's just simply wrong.

Sofa Control's better cause Mira can't turne off the FrontRow app while working

Shrimpdesign, please contact me using the DevRel address on the Twisted Melon site.

While Mira would win over Sofa Conrol for visuals, I think that Sofa Control's use of Applescript makes it much more functional.

One feature that Sofa Control has that Mira doesn't is an "Open" option for most apps (like Preview and Quicktime) ... it's very handy. For instance, if you have Quicktime open, it automatically takes you to your "Movies" folder and displays it in a Front-Row-esqe menu.

I wrote a little script that will MegaZoom any application that is active, and it's actually very useful.

Wow, don't I feel like an idiot. While editing the description I accidentally pressed the DELETE link and pressed OK on the confirmation. I should know better than to be doing this stuff when I should be in bed instead. :(
