Hack 10.05: Use Your iPhone as a Media Remote Control You can use your iphone as a remote control for your computer and media center. if you’ve ever seen a top-of-the-line home theater installation connected to a multiroom sound system, you might have been impressed by the programmable touchscreen controls embedded in the walls near the light switch.and most home theater aficionados eventually get upsold on some sort of super-ultra programmable remote with software programmable buttons. Well, those days may be coming to a close, as iphones and ipod touches become the future of home theater control. Apple TV & iTunes apple set the standard for iphone remote media control apps with their release of Remote, which is available from the app store.This app allows your iphone or ipod touch to control your iTunes or apple TV just as seamlessly as it controls its own media.You may think that the pictures in Figure 10-25 are that of the ipod’s own controls, but how else would a seamless remote control app look? 272 iphone hacks Download at Boykma.Com HACK # 10.05 Figure 10-25. apple’s remote for itunes and apple tVs if you have a sonos music system, they provide a sonos Controller application for iPhones you can use: www.sonos.com/whattobuy/controllers/iphone.the same is true for media systems available from savant: www.savantav.com/products.php?navigationitem=1&subnavigationitem=2&item=0.

Using your unjailbroken iPhone, connecting to only a web application, you can control your desktop fully—using the iPhone as a remote trackpad (Figure 10-27), and even automatically launching dVd movies stored on your computer (Figure 10-28).

HACK 10.07: copy and paste Between applications Clippy (and friends) add copy and paste to the iphone and ipod touch. Copy and paste. Until iphone os 3.0, it was the most glaring feature missing from apple’s otherwise killer device.it’s present on practically every other smartphone on the market, and has infinite applications of convenience, as any journeyman computer user has discovered.so why go without it on a portable master communication device? the Clippy application gives us the copy and paste that iphone os 1.x/2.x owners had been clamoring for.

Figure 10-32. The stack: tap an item in it to paste it where your cursor lies clippy will work between most applications that support text entry.it has a few quirks, but it’s the next best thing to the official apple copy and paste mechanism.
