About Behaviours

Behaviours link Remote Buddy with its environment. They are the links that allow Remote Buddy to control other applications and perform special actions.

Integrated Online Updater

The integrated software update feature not only keep Remote Buddy and already installed Behaviours up-to-date. It also can download brand new Behaviours that match the software installed on your Mac. That way, you automatically benefit from the latest developments without spending any time on manually searching, downloading, unarchiving, copying and deleting.

Virtual input devices

Behaviour Functionality
Virtual Mouse Move the mouse pointer horizontally and vertically, press, release and hold the left mouse button, press the right mouse button. This allows you to do virtually anything from dragging items around to opening context menus and making a selection within them. The "Mousespot" feature makes it easy to softly highlight the position of the mousecursor - a perfect fit for presentations!
Virtual Keyboard Emulates a virtual keyboard, with which you can type any texts. The shift, alt, control, caps lock and command keys are fully supported as modifiers. The keyboard is freely scalable and can be used per keyboard and mouse. Support for keyboard sequences: Allows you to emulate sequences of character keystrokes (i.e. to enter commands, passwords). Once entered, you simple select them from a menu and they are typed into whatever application is currently active. Great help in the office, too, if you used to type the same sentences over and over again.
Virtual Remote Emulates an Apple® Remote compatible remote control on your computer. This enables you to control third party software that brings its own support for Apple®'s remote control without having to quit Remote Buddy. The emulation is in fact so complete, that you can even emulate events for the low battery status and pairing. Does also work with computers that didn't come with built-in IR receivers.
