The app also enables users to control all applications running on their computer via iPhone. Remote Computer's screen is displayed on the iPhone in realtime.
The app automatically discovers all computers on the network and does not require complex configuration.
To use the app users need to download the free iControlBox Remote app from the Appstore and free iControlBox Server from website. Next step is to launch iControlBox Server on the Computer and start app on the iPhone to let them discover each other on the WiFi Network. Once both client and server components are started the Computer name appears on the iPhone app automatically and the users can just select the computer they wish to control or run presentations from. The default password users need to connect is 1234 but it can be configured using the configuration option of the server.
The app works when iPhone/iPad/iPod touch are connected with the same WiFi network as the Mac on which iControlBox Server is running or if iPhone is connected with the Mac using Ad-hoc WiFi or Bluetooth tethering.
