How do you control your Mac from your iPhone? I stopped counting after a few dozen apps which claim wireless control from iPhone to Mac. Personally, I prefer to use a VNC app on both my iPhone and iPad which turns the screen into a small version of the Mac’s screen.
Remote Buddy Express is good not only for remote remote control, but also for remote presentations where your iPhone becomes the remote control while your Mac displays the show ‘n tell.
Over 100 applications are easily controlled on your Mac by using your iPhone as a virtual mouse and remote keyboard. Click on the iPhone mouse and important clicks on the Mac’s screen are highlighted.
Use the iPhone app to switch between apps on the Mac, browse Mac files, and sleep, shutdown, or restart the Mac.
The AJAX Remote app has gesture controls, a presenter keyboard, a live webcam view, and not only controls over 100 apps, but it controls iTunes and EyeTV.
Setting up the remote connection can be cumbersome, though. Your Mac needs to be on the same network as the iPhone when using Wi-Fi (or, you need to setup your Mac and router to handle remote internet connections, which can be difficult at times).
Connection settings can be saved on the iPhone for multiple Macs, which makes it easy to connect after the first install and remote connection.
