  • New features in Preview 7

    The menu structure of Remote Buddy is now freely configurable. All actions, Behaviours, smart folders, interface and special elements are displayed in a tidy palette and can be placed everywhere in the menu structure via drag & drop. Files and folders can be added into the menu structure as well, so they can be accessed quickly - for example during a presentation. Different configurations can be organized in profiles, between which a user can seamlessly switch to meet the specific needs of different usage scenarios.

    New as well is the virtual "Hotkey Remote", which allows to control Remote Buddy via a keyboard or a Bluetooth enabled mobile capable of emulating a keyboard. Thanks to this feature, the range of input devices that can be used to remotely control a Mac using Remote Buddy has become extremely broad.

    Furthermore, support for Airfoil was added, Remote Buddy is now compatible with virtual desktop software, there's a new AppleScript command for OSD messages, the speed has been further increased and quite a number of additional improvements - available in detail in the release notes (http://www.iospirit.com/remotebuddy/releasenotes/) - has been implemented.
