BTT Remote

Andreas Hegenberg
BTT Remote (BTT stands for BetterTouchTool) is a great remote control for your Mac. It allows you to take almost full control over your Mac and all the apps installed on it.

BTT Remote is free, so you can test whether the connection with your Mac works and if you like the general look and feel. However if you want to use all the features you'll have to upgrade to the PRO version.

In order to use it you need to have BetterTouchTool installed on your Mac (which can be downloaded for free on www.bttremote.com). BTT Remote requires at least OS X Lion (10.7) running on your Mac. Your iPhone must be in the same WiFi network as your Mac, enterprise networks may not work.

Note: BTT Remote will not work with Microsoft Windows

Features:
• Includes a nice trackpad to control your Mac's mouse cursor. The trackpad also supports basic multitouch gestures
• Remotely type or dictate text to your Mac
• Remotely access media keys from your Mac's keyboard (play/pause, change the volume, change the brightness for internal and external displays, etc. )
• Remotely access and use any app's menubar
• Configure global actions that work in every application.
• Assign custom icons to each action you configure.

• Configure arbitrary app specific actions for any application you want. With those actions you can control almost anything on your Mac. If you want to see what is possible please checkout BetterTouchTool first.

• Browse your file system (e.g. to start a movie or application while lying in bed)
• Transfer files (up to 6 MB) from your Mac to your iPhone and view them or share them there.
• Navigate between different applications
• Ability to increase cursor size and zoom the screen for convenient control while e.g. sitting on your couch.

• The iPhone version is designed to allow full control with only one hand
• Supports portrait and landscape mode
• Many settings to customize the app
• Very easy to use

What's new in version 2.0.1
Sorry it took me so long to bring you this update. I promise there will be more and faster updates in the future!

• BTT Remote now has a free version and a PRO version. Of course users who bought BTT Remote before will automatically get the PRO version for free.
• Improved iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 compatibility a lot
• Fixed many connection issues
• Support for iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus
• Added support for modifier keys (shift, fn, cmd. opt, ctrl)
• Added various customization options (e.g. you can now choose a custom gradient or image for the trackpad background)
• File Browser now supports “Open With”, this means you can open a file on your Mac with all matching applications.
• File Browser now allows you to transfer and display files (up to 5MB) from your Mac on your iOS device.
• Various layout changes
• Removed the “Global” app, instead BTT Remote now has a “Active App” which also shows the configured global actions.

• Improved many implementation details and improved the code a lot, this will make future updates much, much easier for me.
• I rewrote much of the code, if you encounter any bug, please let me know.
• More to come soon!

Important: You also have to update BetterTouchTool on your Mac to version 0.999 or greater.
