Turn your computer off with a timer…

I just released version 3 of Off Remote.
The major new feature is that you can now send timed commands, so you can send a command telling your computer to turn off in 1 hour – or to go to sleep in 45 mins, or to log off, hibernate or restart.

I use it to turn off my media PC after playing video, and to set a timer on my computer when it is playing audio at night.

There are quite a few users who use it to check that their kids really have turned off their computers when they were supposed to!

You can get it at the app store now!

New app: VLC Streamer

Streaming by the power of VLC!

My new app just went live. It uses VLC to convert movies into the format needed to stream them to your iPhone, iPod or iPad.

It can handle most movie types, and can start streaming your movie within 10 seconds or so.

Now your whole movie collection is available on your iPod or iPad without syncing or converting.

The full version is $0.99

Or the free version (with annoying ads) is available to let you try it out.

iBrowse – Updated

Hi,

iBrowse is my new browser. It just got even better.

You can now open a page, then switch to opening links in background tabs. This means you can do a search on Google and open multiple results at once, or go to the front page of a news site and open all the stories you want to read.

-Also included are 100% fullscreen browsing
-Turbo mode (just like fast web)
-Block images (also saves bandwidth)
-Private browsing
-and much more!

Have a look at the linked video to see it in action…

Why the News?

Thanks for reading this far.

I was looking for a way to communicate with users of my apps – and this seemed to be a good approach. My hope is that it is simple enough to be unintrusive, but also obvious enough for you to read if you are interested.

I’m used to working in a community where there is a lot more direct communication between users and developers – but that is tough to manage through the app store. Hence the ‘in app news’

My intent is to use this channel to let people know about updates, new features and other apps that I’m working on. I’ll be adding tips and requests for beta testers too.

If you have any comments or suggestions, then let me know at rob@hobbyistsoftware.com

Thanks for using my apps!
