Use your iPhone as a remote trackpad and keyboard for a Mac.

Overview

pearPad is a little application that turns your iPhone/iPod Touch into a remote trackpad and keyboard for your Mac. This comes in handy for example if you connect your Mac to an HDTV to show off some pictures, browse the web, or give a presentation.

pearPad gives you almost full control in your palm. pearPad supports configurable swipe-gestures (quick strokes across the iPhone/iPod Touch screen, for example convenient to quickly switch photos in iPhoto or Aperture), mouse cursor positioning (like a trackpad), scrolling with two fingers, text-entry using the default virtual keyboard, or key-combinations (like Command, Shift, Control) provided by a special onscreen-pad, for example for sending keyboard-shortcuts.

pearPad consists of two parts: The first part is the application running on the iPhone/iPod Touch, which is available at the AppStore (the one you are looking at right now). The second part is the application running on your Mac called pearPad Remote. This application listens to and interprets the commands sent to it by pearPad. (pearPad Remote is available for free and requires MacOS X 10.5).

Can anyone who has this tell me if it keeps your iPod touch (or iPhone) powered on at all times when it is running? If your iPod or iPhone goes to sleep as usual, this would be a bit annoying to use. Obviously that's a power drain, though, so perhaps it would only do this while plugged in/connected to a computer (and thus getting power.) Also, to the developer - I would really, really like a 10.4 client for it. I could use this at work where I have 10.5, but at home I'm at 10.4 and would like to be able to use it there too. Actually I'm much more interested in using it at home then at work, and I can't due to the 10.5 requirement.
