BTT Remote has now been released to the iOS App Store! See http://bttremote.com. The screenshots below are no longer accurate!
The app can always be controlled with one hand, all actions etc. can be triggered with your thumb. It’s not a trackpad / mouse replacement but rather a nice remote control for your Mac. I’m already using it a lot to e.g. open movies while lying in bed but it would also be suited for e.g. presentations or to browse the internet while your Mac is connected to a TV.
Also I’m currently adding some special features for some apps
This is the main view, here you can see all apps for which you have configured Remote Actions in BetterTouchTool. Also there are buttons on the bottom to open various views.
Tapping on a configured app brings you to the configured actions for this app. Below the app specific actions the global actions are shown.
Swiping to the right (from anywhere in the app) opens a view with some common keyboard actions (brightness is there twice for people with external monitors, so you can change the brightness of both display independently). Tapping on “Tap to use keyboard” opens the standard iPhone keyboard, which allows you to type anything you want. Also the empty bottom area of this view can be used as trackpad to move your mouse cursor and click/scroll.
Swiping to the left (from anywhere in the app) opens the trackpad view, it’s only purpose is to allow you to move your mouse, scroll and click.
This view opens after tapping the “Running Apps” button in the first view shown above. It shows you all GUI applications that are currently running on your Mac.
Each of those apps offers those actions:
This view opens after tapping the “Menubar” button in the first view shown above. It allows you to access the current menubar from your Mac, you can trigger all menu items even if you don’t have any explicit actions configured for an app.
This is the file browser, which allows you to open any file or app on your mac. So e.g. while lying on the couch you can open a movie (or anything else) on your iMac. The first folders it shows are your Finder favorites.
