Air Mouse Pro turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a remote control for your computer.

Using Air Mouse Pro, I reclined in my office chair and controlled my computer from my iPod Touch. I’m not sure if that’s being lazy, but it is fabulous technology.    The app is easy to install but you also need to download software for your PC or Mac. I had it running on a Windows Vista-based laptop in minutes.

Here’s a cool trick: I like to download movies from iTunes onto my laptop. I plug the laptop into my HDTV with an HDMI cable for a great picture. Then, using Air Mouse Pro as a remote control, I relax on the couch and rewind, pause and fast-forward as needed.
 
Another cool trick: Air Mouse Pro knows if you are on the Web. You can refresh pages or go to your home page and bookmarks. At the same time, you can access and control your music player.

Honestly, I’m not sure if an iPhone-based remote control is necessary, but it is pretty cool.
