Run AppleScripts on a Mac using Remote.app
Authored by: designr on Oct 12, '10 02:18:14PM

Couldn't you just set up an Applescript trigger in Mail using Rules? Then send yourself an email to trigger Mail to run the Applescript?

Run AppleScripts on a Mac using Remote.app
Authored by: MurphyM on Oct 12, '10 06:40:07PM

That's how I prefer to run scripts from my iPhone. Works over 3g too, obviously. I have a bunch of posts on my site (Murphy Mac) about kicking off scripts through mail - including one for rotating photos taken in portrait view with the iPhone. So people see them correctly in their browser.

I still think this hint is very interesting. Once set up it could be considered quite user friendly. It could provide a list of possible commands instead of you having to remember the choices.
