  • Fixed zooming in Panther.
  • Fixed AppleScript launching Classic applications in the supplied menus (thanks to Leor Bleier)

  • Interface tweaks including GUI layout, Open and Save dialogs remembering last directory, and improved error dialogs.
  • Improved handling of drag-and-drop.

This is just a great application!

I tried Salling clicker, but Romeo does a better job (using a Sony Ericsson Z600).

I really wish there were a Universal Binary version of this little program. I've been using it for a while on my G5, and I absolutely love it! (The AppleScript capability gives it infinite power!) However, now that I'm going away to school with my MacBook Pro, I'm really going to miss Romeo.

Great app!

Two faults:

- Annoying "No document could be created" error pop-up with Tiger when app is launched.

- NO SUPPORT OF SE k750i !! This great phone DESERVES this great app.

Fantastic work nonetheless. Can't wait for the next update.

skythefly13 had trouble on 10 Dec 2005
I tried using a Siemens S66 phone just for the heck of it (to control front row) and it says "See 'accessories' on Siemens S66". Tried this, and theres nothing related to this at all? Does it just not work or am I just not smart enough
