Control your computer with a wave of your hand or a flick of your finger! Impress your audience at speaking engagements or just veg out on the couch.

HippoRemote Pro turns your iPhone and iPod touch into a Wi-Fi keyboard, trackpad, and remote control, making it the perfect pocket-sized controller for your computer.

HippoRemote works great as a clicker for your Keynote or PowerPoint presentation. Or to control your classroom's interactive whiteboard.

In addition, like a high-end universal remote, you can customize the buttons and tailor them to specific apps. This makes it an ideal remote control for your HTPC, whether it's a Mac mini running Plex, a Windows PC running Windows Media Center, or a Linux box running XBMC.

HippoRemote Pro also has a gamepad mode, letting you control your favorite PC games.

And because it all works over Wi-Fi, you get superior range and no line-of-sight issues compared to traditional remotes. No extra dongles or expensive adapters required.

5/5 stars

Worth every penny of the pro price

It takes a little bit of effort to set up, but the instructions are dead-simple and doing so helps you understand how really powerful and flexible this app is. Had a secondary Apple Magic Pad set up for my aged MacBook in minutes, and totally blew away a friend by installing it to run Windows Media Player on my Windows 7 machine. This is what all apps should be in terms of design and utility, can't wait for the native iPad version.

5/5 stars


The best remote app out there. Nice job

Upgraded from lite to pro to support the dev. This is by far my favorite app! Keep it up!
