... your Mac -
with your iPhone
The KickStart website is left for convenience for our former buyers of KickStart to be able to download the KickStart Server again if they need to reinstall (see end of page)
With KickStart you are in control - get your iPhone and remote control your Mac! KickStart lets you control
- have your Mac's dock in your iPhone
- start applications listed in your Mac's Dock
- quit running applications
- shut down your Mac
- let a message pop up
Enhancements of version 1.1:
- Spotlight search for PDF documents
- better server with automated update function
- (even) nicer interface
- Pairing with dedicated Macs
- and more
Kickstart shows all applications that you have placed in your Mac's "Dock". You can start or quit them.
Shut down, reboot, sleep
You don't have to get up - just use KickStart to perform these basic operations. If you have your iPod touch® or iPhone® with you - zero problem.
See all running apps. Quit them if neccessary without moving your mouse.
Find PDF documents on your Mac and read them on the iPhone.
You can remote control any number of Macs. You choose via the start menu. Only the iPhones who know the dedicated pairing number cann access a particular Mac.
Send message to your Mac's screen
If someone is using your Mac - send him a message.
Besides - although it's fun to remote control your Mac - there are a lot of situations when KickStart comes to be very handy. For example - use it as a very fast tool to quit applications, to start iPhoto or another application you have placed in your Mac's Dock.
The neccassary server application comes as an easy to install dmg-file. If you should get any problems you find here a troubleshooting guide.
Software requirements: iPhone or iPod touch Vers. 2.2.0 and newer and the server app (please use the Kickstart server download button below); Mac OS X vers. 10.5. up.
