Air Login is a new remote access app for iPad and iPhone. In fact it’s a great new remote access app for the iPad and iPhone. It lets you connect to your Macs at home or at an office from the iPad.
Here’s a bit of its App Store intro:
Air Login connects over the Internet to present your Mac OS X screen on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. A virtual trackpad lets you move a mouse cursor around on the screen and interact with the Mac user interface.
• Air Login keeps the Mac menu bar pinned at the top of your iOS screen, even while you zoom and pan the rest of the screen to focus on small UI elements. The menu works instantly because it’s cached locally, and doesn’t need to communicate back to the computer until you select a menu item.
• A Mission Control-like feature called App Grid lets you quickly focus on a particular Mac window or app.
• A custom keyboard gives you all of the special Mac keys that you need.
• Avatron’s advanced Air Connect server connects your devices even if they’re behind firewalls, on a cell connection, or on a very restrictive network. If your Mac can surf the Web, Air Login can operate it remotely.
I installed the app this morning after seeing it get some heavy praise at TUAW, and I am already hugely impressed with it.
