Without this the iPhone app rowmote will not work work.

Why should you carry a second device just to control your computer?

Why should you need line-of-sight to do so?

You love the remote control which came with your Mac - so simple yet elegant, with easy control of Front Row, iTunes, Quicktime, DVD Player, Keynote, and more. You carry your iPhone or iPod Touch wherever you go...

Enter Rowmote!

On one side, Rowmote is just like your Mac’s remote control but over the wireless network. On the flip side, by tapping the Apps button, you get bonus abilities, switching between most controlled programs and toggling the iTunes Visualizer. Rowmote controls Front Row, Airfoil Video, Boxee, iPhoto, iStopMotion, iTunes, Quicktime, DVD Player, Keynote ’08 and ‘09, PandoraJam, Plex, Powerpoint 2004 and 2008, Skim, Spotify, and VLC. Rowmote 1.3+ also has preliminary eyeTV support (channel changing and volume control). Rowmote can even sleep and wake your computer!

Rowmote requires Mac OS X 10.4.0 or later or an Apple TV. The free Rowmote Helper program must be running on the system to be controlled; please see the special Apple TV instructions if needed. The ‘Apps’ remote is for the Mac only, not for the Apple TV.

Rowmote is a steal at $0.99. Couple it with Apple’s free Remote app to turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into the ultimate controller for home stereo, mobile presentation, or casual video viewing. Download it today!

@texinick You can see the latest changes on the iPhone app , the server program is mostly just updated to match the client afaict.

Agree with the other comments, this is a great app. Can't seem to find any details about changes in the updates though.

Great app!

This app is absolutely fantastic! It's requires the $0.99 or $4.99 pro iPhone or iPod Touch app. Works exactly as noted, it's very zippy, VERY small lag!
