I love iRed Lite!

Who said I only write snarky posts?

I came across a free program (I can’t remember where I saw it first – I thought it was on Chris’ site but I can’t find any reference to it there now) called iRed Lite and I love it!

The idea is very simple – take the IR control which ships with all new Macs and is only useful for Frontrow, and add extra functionality to it so it can actually be useful, day-to-day!

I decided to use it in conjunction with Keynote, Apple’s presentation software, when I was giving my talks to Microsoft Belgium last week.

Previously I had used my bluetooth mouse to move the slides forward but I found this to be flaky (didn’t always work) – using the IR control was flawless.

Thank you iRed Lite
