A heads-up on purchasing things in the App Store
Authored by: gabester on Jul 10, '08 09:49:20AM

I don't have my password cached in Keychain for iTunes - so I have to authenticate to download anything. Seems like a reasonable compromise between a shopping cart collecting everything and the instant gratification of the one-click purchasing.

I am disappointed, however, that there is no ARD/VNC type app to remote control my Macs (yet, I hope...) Yes, the Remote app is nice but sometimes I might want to do something on my computer like initiate a file copy or launch a non-iLife application. Hmm... there doesn't seem to be an SSH app either!

If you've jailbroken your phone/pod, check out Touchpad Pro. I use it pretty much every day to control my various Macs from the couch or bed or wherever. :)

I haven't tried it yet but I'm looking closely at Remote Buddy.

It is an AJAX based app that runs in Safari and uses WiFi to connect to your computer and control it. Looks impressive. My interest is remote control of Keynote with my iPhone.

I have been using logmein.com . . . gives you remote control via a web browser . . . and the basic version is free. It should work via iPhone as well as a standard browser does.
