Finding a wireless remote for your computer may not be at the top of your to do list, but once you try the remarkable HippoRemote Pro app you will be permanently hooked. It allows full use of a Mac or PC but also gives full access to the Internet too – and all without leaving the app.

The HippoRemote Pro features an embedded Twitter client and web browser which allows the user to enjoy a range of features through a single location. It has one of the most sensitive and functional track pad options which includes swirling and dragging features, and allows for customized controls in each app profile. There are more than twenty built-in app profiles, but the user can also create custom designs for each program on their computer.

The keyboard is programmed to recall previously typed entries and will soon auto-fill or retype common phrases. There is the option for custom macros that allow the user to create shortcuts for their most frequently used programs, and this means that the app converts the device into far more than a simple remote control for a PC. There is even a one-touch login and password manager too.

There are some other options for converting a mobile device into a remote control, but the HippoRemote Pro is really on the cutting edge and provides far more than a basic way to run a few programs remotely.

The cost for the app is $4.99 and all updates are made available at no additional charge. This app functions with iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

If you want to get maximum functionality from your PC and mobile device this is the app for the job.
